As we live in a world where a majority doesn’t seem to take mental health seriously, a lot of people tend to hide it when they feel that their mental health is deteriorating. The stigma attached to mental health conditions only add to people tending to keep whatever they are going through, to themselves. However, as every single one of us should be aware, just like we can catch a cold easily depending on how strong or weak we physically are, any individual is prone to get mentally unwell depending on their mental capacity to handle or bear difficult situations.
