Mental health is something that I would say is a largely over looked part of health in this country short of depression which has had multimillion dollar advertising blitzes by the drug companies, most everything else to do with mental health is a part of health care that is totally divorced from what is considered everyday. It is a part of health care that is even relatively poorly handled in countries that have universal health care but that is, at least from my view even more poorly handled in this country. It is so poorly handled in the western health care cutler, in no small part due to the negative social stigmas that mental health issues are some how failings of the person that suffers from them, or that they are character flaws etc, that have caused our jails to often become populated by those suffering from mental illness because they are unable to get treatment they turn to ways of trying to self medicate that often land them afoul of the law. As a society this emphasizes on negative views of mental health, has quite a high cost, a cost in people who aren't able to live as productive and full filled lives as they could, and a tax cost associated with housing them in prison and hospitals because they could not get the help that needed.
Even if one is able to hope threw all the hopes that they need to clear in order to get help, they have to deal with the fact that the negative stigmas that are attached to most mental illnesses are ever present, that it is a big risk to even tell family or friends, let alone the risk that ones employer, or future employers for that fact might find out about it, even if it dose not mean that they are in any way incapable of doing their job. This is because many employers even if they don't openly admit it would turn down a job to some qualified for that job just because they have a mental disorder even if it is under control. Not only dose admitting it put at risk in a very real way ones job, it also has another risk of changing the way that others view you and the ways in which they interact with you. It can cause them to see you as being weak and having a falling and character problems and that is why you have this issue and you are just weak that is why you can't just make it go away. It can also cause them to treat you with kit gloves like you are some sort of damaged goods or something that might brake and harm them.
