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.
