The world is talking a lot more about mental health than ever before. In the earlier days, people neglected mental health, or if someone said they were depressed, people used to underestimate them. In the earlier days, people were not supposed to come out with their weak minds, and if someone expressed their weak mental health, they were identified straightly as people with a mental health condition. As a result, many people lost their precious time battling their mental condition yet received no help to overcome it. Thankfully, the time has changed, and people are talking seriously about mental health.
Psychology and Psychiatry are such two streams, and they will help the kind of mental weakness through their diagnosis. The term ‘psychiatry’ was first used in 1808 by Reil, a professor of medicine in Germany. Psychology is the study of the mind and behaviour, meanwhile.
Psychiatry is the branch of medicine focused on diagnosing, treating, and preventing mental, emotional, and behavioural disorders.
We all are born with some emotional or psychological issues. However, most of us can control that and overcome that in the mean course of time. When we cannot understand those issues and cannot overcome them, we have to be alarmed. For example, it’s natural for anyone to go through sleeplessness, but if it continues for more than two weeks, that person will surely need medical help. It can be due to physical or emotional issues.
There are many mental challenges, like bipolar, depression, schizophrenia, anxiety disorders, and Eating disorders. Post-traumatic stress disorder, etc
How to identify whether you need mental support
- When you have extreme mood swings, lack of concentration
- Fears, worries and confusion
- Eating disorders
- Lack of sleep
- Feeling of isolation
- Suicidal thoughts
- Extreme tiredness
- Various addictions
what can be the reasons of mental health issues
- Most of them are from the traumas in the childhood. Most of the serial killers got their mental issues rooted in the bad childhood
- lack of good diet
- bad financial status
- domestic violence
- physical illness
- sudden traumas
- some families will have history of depression / astrology can easily identify hereditary illness and genetic disorders
All these are common, but how long you are suffering? If you have these issues for more than two weeks, you may need mental support. Many people say they have depression or mental health issues, especially celebrities, but they use these terms to gain attention. Some use this as a PR stunt as well. Most celebrities are under the public scanner, and they want some or other drama to place them in the public eye. So, please don’t get carried away by the mental health drama by at least 75% of the celebrities.
If you doubt whether you need mental support, you should go to a medically certified person to make sure that you need mental support.
In astrology, we can easily find whether the person will need mental support. Astrology is evolving a lot through psychology, and that branch is known as Astro-Psychology.
The Moon and the 4th house indicate mind, peace, mental health, and comfort in astrology. Various conditions for Moon will show how mentally strong or weak the person is. If the fourth house has any affliction, the native will be naturally disturbed.
Kema drama dosha is a typical condition of a weak mind. When there are no planets from the 2nd and 12th Moon, Kemadruma dosha occurs. If the Moon is again aspected by the malefic, the native will have further mental challenges. When Moon is in conjunction with the malefic or Rahu Ketu axis, the native will have emotional needs.
When the Moon is in the 6th, 8th or 12th, the native will have emotional challenges. A debilitated Moon is the best example of a confused mind. When the Moon is in bad condition in the 6th house, that too in a complex nakshathra, the native will surely go for mental support.
Psychology and Psychiatry are very good career options, and the governments are supporting these domains. A few years back, Kerala did not have too many options to get a psychologist in government hospitals, but nowadays, we have many options.
I struggled with depression in my late teens to mid-twenties; I know how harsh it is. But, even though it was not medically certified, I knew I had depression, and I was showing that without knowing how to control it. It took a long time to get over my depression and to have sound mental health.
When someone has a mental health problem, the people around them may not identify that. So they will be very keen on making fun of them and labelling them as antisocial. It can affect the studies, behaviour, and confidence.
The people who go through mental weakness need the support of the experts, not every tom, dick and harry with home remedies. Astrology has better indications than any psychologist or psychiatrist to show someone has mental health issues. It can also show the timing of these issues, but we need the help of medically certified professionals for the remedies. During my long term depression, no one suggested to me a psychologist; maybe in those days, it was not introduced or not known to anyone. Thankfully, my Biblical studies helped me be very stable in my life. There is no better remedy than reliance on the Lord and his blessings. That doesn’t mean you have to rely only on the divine powers. If you feel mentally weak, you should not hesitate to go to an expert. It is better than you getting lost one day. Please dont think that what others think, its your life and you have the full right to improve it. And that’s why it says, Proverbs 9:10, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding”, no matter which religion you follow.
