Written by Emily Johnson - Published on March 22, 2024

In recent years, conversations around mental health have become more prevalent, raising an important question:In a vague time frame, of which the last few years have been important, the topic of mental health is more common and this invokes the question:

These emotional problems are becoming more common, and therefore, we can say that people are suffering from this in a very large scale.

It keeps on challenging earlier labels and gives more accurate mental health reports than before because more people are now the users of this service and are reporting cases of mental health problems.

Through presenting the current mental health status real-life situation, this paper firstly touches on the main feature and secondly explains why it has become like that in recent times.

The Growing Awareness of Mental Health

Fundamentally the issue of the overestimation of mental health issues is issuing to the increasing publicity and its destigmatization as people realize that they are normal.

Social media, advertising, and improved media coverage have remained key factors in turning mental health from a hidden condition to today’s spotlight.

According to this, the heightened consciousness has contributed more individuals' acknowledging and looking for the symptoms of their mental complications that have caused an increase in the number of reported cases.

Impact of Modern Lifestyle

Modern day lives, where stress and more complicated mental health issues are on the rise, are seen as a factor contributing to this increase. The rapid tempo of life, news and alerts alerts, and social pressure from social media boost the chance that you can feel that your performance is not good enough, you are stressed or you suffer from anxiety.

Moreover, these economic concerns, either uncertainties or global pandemic, aggravated mental health concerns, which is one of the factors showing the fragility of mental state nowadays.

Access to Mental Health Services

Additionally, the mental health services providers need to confront a scenario where the over-reporting of mental health issues is taken for granted.

Now that people who have been diagnosed with mental disorders have this possibility, the number of patients needs to be 10 times as the expertise being embraced by the specialists.

In fact, this statement is quite an uplifting one, since it means that there is an improvement of access to the people in need to the resources that they are entitled to receive.

The Role of Research and Data

As the result of the new scientific researches and data collecting campaigns, the 'era of eyes' that can throw more accurate and detailed lights on the problem of mental health appears.

The research conducted here have shown that the mental health conditions of anxiety and depression which was not known previously are more prevalent than one would have suspected drawing the talk that there is an escalation.


The question of whether we witness more mental disorder cases recently cannot be separated with factors like attention growth, modern life difficulties, health care development, or methodology modernization applied to the research topic.

Nonetheless, it is undisputed the need of continually striving to address the stigma, access issues to health services and support of those suffering from mental health issues.

Through the resolution of these challenges, society can make a transition to nonprejudicial setting where mental health receives a rightful recognition and care.

As mental health talks take more space in the spotlight, it is become vital that we remain proactive in unraveling the genesis of the issues and seeking workable answer.

We can minimized mental problems only if people cooperated and the sympathy go upwards.

"Also absolutely love the fact that a portion of cost goes to mental health charities. "

Love this bag - so bright and cheerful and a great 'in between' size. Already had compliments on it. Also absolutely love the fact that a portion of cost goes to mental health charities. My only criticism would be how open it is - a zip closure would make it more secure.
