Mental health diagnosis, prognosis, intervention, and recovery are subject to the culture and society one belongs. In some cultures mental health is seen as demonic, mystical, biological, environmental, and as a consequence of ones misdeeds in previous life. Caveat the aim of this post is to set mental health talk rolling, no intention to cause offence, nor make inflammatory remarks.
Research have shown that in developing countries, mental health is more likely seen, to be caused by other factors, rather than biological. This is due to beliefs, ignorance, and lack of knowledge. However the well educated ones tend to lean on the school of thought of it being caused by genetic predisposition, coupled with environmental factors, and is treatable, and that one can live a meaningful, purposeful and satisfying life.
Conclusively, I will like to emphasise, having lived with mental health issues for more than two decades, as well as see my two very close relative suffer from the same diagnosis. I have to concur that mental health issues is biological (Genetics) and environmental factors triggers it. This is my opinion any contrary views and opinions are very welcome.
