“Mental pain is less dramatic than physical pain but it is more common and hard to ignore”CS Lewis
You can get medical drugs to ease physical pain, but what medication do you take to ease mental pain such as anxiety, stress, low self esteem etc.?
Gen Z is burned with the stressors of life, technological advancements have exacerbated the disconnect thus we see an increase in suicide, unhealthy lifestyle choices, lack of direction, meaning and purpose. People with mental health are more often violent and not all of them act it out and burst it out but keep it within themselves. There is no pill you take to heal from mental health.
In Part of the conversation on Mental Health with Gen Z we explore some of the contributing factors to mental illness and how best as parents, leaders can reach out and help lead them to a healthy place.
