Lack of awareness

Shame

Stigma

Wasting their money

Unnecessary backlash by society

The simple rule is that whenever you get hurt ,you visit a doctor for getting treatment and same logic applies here also . Both our physical and mental well being is our responsibility.

Mental Health Awareness Month was first celebrated in 1949. It was commemorated by the Mental Health America organization, which was then known as the National Committee for Mental Hygiene and then later as the National Mental Health Association before it got its current name. The association was founded by Clifford Whittingham Beers. Beers, who was born in 1876 in Connecticut, was one of five children in his family who all suffered from mental illness and psychological distress. All of them also went on to spend time at mental institutions and it was from his hospital admittance that he discovered that the mental health field had a notorious reputation for malpractice, maltreatment, and immense bias.
