Have you ever seen people suffering from mental distress? Have you ever seen people becoming homeless because of mental distress? What is your usual reaction? Well, if your reaction is a feeling like Pity, then you are not enough sympathetic towards that person. People generally treat patients who suffer from mental distress with pity, but never really do for them. Most of the time they make a very common or a silly mistake and that, is they think that mentally distressed patients are dangerous. So people avoid them and not only that they also neglect them. But the reality is a person who is suffering from some mental problem can leave a normal simple life if he/she goes through proper counseling. The mental health recovery of a person is possible.
The problem that is mostly suffered by these people is that they are most often homeless. Either because the society does not want that person to live in a normal civilized world; or else the miniature society or the family tends to do away with all the responsibility of a mental patient. So before the patient before his/her recovery needs a proper home like environment to recover.
Now the question is that who will provide such a place? Well, the answer to that question is that there are numerous non-governmental sectors, working for those people who are suffering from a mental health problem. They provide accommodation for those people who are in a need of it. Not only that, they take good care to ensure; that these people can lead a life of a normal human being. For this reason they took up a lot of programs where these kinds of patients go through a treatment conducted by the staff and the client of these organizations.
These programs can be of 6 months or more than that. They also provide these people suffering from some kind of mental problem a homelike environment; especially to those people who are homeless or those people who are going through some kind of social crisis. And the accommodation along with the treatment given by these organizations helps these patients recover personally so that they can be a part of this normal human world. Today recovery from the mental health problem is not a big issue.
So are your friend and any of your near and dear one suffer from such mental disease? Then you should not waste much time and take quick action. So that his/her life is as beautiful as anyone else.
