Mental health and our responsibilities


Thus, we often discuss the problems of our society and discuss their spread, efforts, and results, but we do not play any role in solving them, nor do we play any role in solving them. We try because actually all of us are the cause of these problems which we are not ready to admit.

The mental health situation in Pakistani society is a complex issue influenced by various factors, including cultural, social, economic, and political aspects. While mental health awareness and understanding have been growing in recent years, there are still significant challenges that need to be addressed.

Lack of Awareness and Stigma: There is a pervasive stigma surrounding mental health in Pakistani society. Many people view mental illnesses as a sign of weakness or personal failure, leading to social ostracization and discrimination. This stigma often prevents individuals from seeking help and support. Lack of awareness about mental health and its importance also contributes to the problem.

Cultural and Religious Factors: Cultural and religious beliefs play a significant role in shaping attitudes toward mental health in Pakistan. Traditional beliefs and practices may attribute mental health issues to supernatural causes or moral shortcomings, which can further perpetuate stigma and hinder help-seeking behavior. There is a need for culturally sensitive approaches to mental health that respect and integrate local beliefs and practices.

Limited Accessibility to Mental Health Services: Access to mental health services remains a significant challenge in Pakistan. There is a shortage of mental health professionals, particularly in rural areas, where the majority of the population resides. Additionally, mental health services are often underfunded and lack proper infrastructure and resources. This limited accessibility prevents many individuals from receiving timely and appropriate care.

Socioeconomic Challenges: Socioeconomic factors, such as poverty, unemployment, and inadequate healthcare infrastructure, contribute to the mental health burden in Pakistan. Economic stressors can trigger or exacerbate mental health issues, while limited resources make it difficult for individuals to access appropriate care. The link between poverty and mental health needs to be addressed through comprehensive social and economic policies.

Our many celebrities do efforts and play their roles in their surroundings and boundaries. One organization “Make 125. People Happy” led by Shuja Sami is very active in this field he is spreading awareness through their skills he made 2 short videos about mental health one of” Soach” and the other one of “Khushian ” These videos he showed different types of stress and feelings of mental health in different situations, he showed different human feelings and how to manage and control ourselves in difficult times should encourage and support him for healthy, happy and civilized society



Efforts are being made to address these challenges. Mental health advocacy organizations, both governmental and non-governmental, are working towards raising awareness, reducing stigma, and improving access to mental health services. However, sustained investment in mental health infrastructure, increased awareness campaigns, and integration of mental health services into primary healthcare are necessary to improve the mental health situation in Pakistani society. We should support all types of level and encourage them being human being it’s our responsibility.
