Mental Health Creates Great Numbers Of Disabilities Throughout The World

By Eddie Smyths for exercise-and-health.com

Mental health has the stigma of meaning that someone no longer has control of his or her mental faculties and it simply isn’t true. In maintaining lifetime fitness, we need to include the health of our minds to be able to enjoy life to its fullest. Treatment and prevention are key in helping to deal with mental disorders.

Well-researched treatments that are incredibly effective exist for the treatment of mental disorders. Unfortunately, those who have mental illness are often misdiagnosed or don’t have the means to seek proper treatment. The understanding, diagnosis and treatment of mental illness are key in the rehabilitation and prevention of mental disorders.

Mental illness is the leading cause of disability claims in the United States, Western Europe and Canada according to the World Health Organization. Their findings indicated that mental illness including depression, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder answers for twenty-five percent of disability in major industrialized countries.

Diagnosis for treatment and prevention in both mens health and womens health are key factors. Talk to your physician about your symptoms and concerns and he or she should be able to point you in the proper direction for treatment or rehab if need be. You can also take advantage of online opportunities to answer a few questionnaires that help signal the chance of having an anxiety disorder, attention deficit disorder, mood disorders, eating disorders, schizophrenia, personality disorders and substance-related disorders.

Exercise plays an important role in our health, both physical and mental. Join a gym or buy a piece of exercise equipment to see if that helps to make a difference. Make sure you talk with your doctor about your new exercise routines and he or she can advise you on your target heart rate and any other information you might need to improve your health. Whatever you do, talk with your physician first for proper diagnosis and course of treatment.
