What Most People Don’t Understand About Mental Health

Physical issues shouldn’t be treated as more valid than mental health issues.

When physically sick, most people usually won’t hesitate to pursue medical or professional attention; same with a broken bone or any virtually any suspected physical ailment. Employers also readily accept physical health issues as a legitimate reason to miss work, but not so much mental health issues. Why aren’t mental health issues taken as seriously or seen as legitimate? What’s up with the double standard? Why isn’t our mental well-being treated like our physical well-being?
