Seeing a psychiatrist is no longer stigmatized, in fact it is a must in the 20th century, with three psychiatric illnesses among the World Health Organization’s top-10 list of the leading causes of disability in the world. In particular, depression is expected to take over heart disease in the year 2020 as the number-one leading cause of disability.
The symptoms of mental disorders can have a significant impact on a person’s enjoyment of life and, in some cases, on their ability to function and cope with day-to-day tasks. Treatment through therapy or medication, or both, can address and alleviate these symptoms. Seeking help is not an admission of weakness, but the first step towards understanding and finding relief from distressing symptoms.
