A Royal Story: The Importance of Mental Health #HeadsTogether

Often we ignore the importance of mental health without realizing how it can be the sole cause of our lack of motivation towards daily life interests.  Mental health governs your entire state of wellness.  It also enhances physical health, increases productivity and leads us towards healthy living.  A significant rise in depression in men has been seen lately, which is mainly attributed to prolonged state of stress. These psychological problems can actually lead to physical issues like heart disease, hypertension, compromise on the immune system and ulcers.

The need of the hour is to generate awareness about the importance of mental health. Fortunately, projects like Heads Together are working tirelessly to help us comfortably engage with one another. This facilitates us to reach a mutual understanding of problems we face, and how we can handle them together.  The Kensington Royal Family is playing a significant role in promoting the cause of such projects.  There are seven charity partners that the Royal Family works with and Young Minds is notable in this regard.

The eradication of depression and psychological stress can change the entire perspective of how we look at things in life.  This can lead to improved mental wellbeing and make us more highly productive.  It is to be noted that it is not only young generations suffering from psychological issues, but adults too.  Once we put an end to the stigma around mental health, we can put an end to the exponentially rising anxiety states once and for all and thus transform our society into a much better place.
