Mental Health

Mental health is one of the least talked about and most neglected areas of health. And yet, most people will suffer with at least one mental health problem throughout their lives. The UK’s National Health Service (NHS) recently promised to transform mental health services by 2020. How will they do this? By offering extensive supportive services that are easily accessible? Or will doctors get further free reign to prescribe dangerous and ineffective antidepressant drugs to patients who may not need them?

There are no quick and fast answers when it comes to solving these problems. Breaking down social stigma is certainly a good starting point. Here at the Daily Health we hope to shed some light on how these problems can be tackled – for one, we believe the over-prescription of antidepressant drugs may be part of the problem, coupled with the overdiagnosis of what are considered to be childhood behavioural problems, like ADHD.

Mental Health: Are You Okay?

Mental Health – it’s a topic people don’t talk about… and we’re all paying the price for it… mainly because of a deep-rooted stigma in our society in which we are told that unless we are anything but perfect there is something “wrong” with us.

Fears Over Long-Term Side Effects Of Ritalin As Prescriptions Rise

Shortly before he died, the late Dr. Leon Eisenberg – the ‘father’ of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), said: “ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease.” Sadly, this fictitious disease has singlehandedly created one of the most over-prescribed drugs of all time, Ritalin.
