Depression and Anxiety are very common much more than heart disease. But mental health is highly neglected. Biochemical abnormalities in the brain can cause mental disorders. It’s important that these disorders are found early. There should be no stigma associated with mental health. All these disorders are treatable. It’s a myth that medications induce sleep and have to be taken lifelong.
