    Today 10 octomber is celebrated as world mental health day since 1992. This is to awake people to mental health & keep physicallly ,mentally & emotionally fit , only than the total health is achieved.This year it is celebrated as impect of culture & diversity theme.
    At present times the increasing impect of money & luxeries & physical growth is directly related to mental health problems. The changing life pattern & style, the decreasing values of tredition & culture ,increasing urbanisation ,increasing population, neuclear families ,breaking of joint family system increasing information & technology are also responsible for incresing cases of mental dipression ,tensions,anxiety ,neurosis & insomnea lack of sleepstc.
    To day it is necessary for us to give increase importance to sprituallity & yogadarshan to reduce all these mental problems .
    We Ladies must look out for our mental health fitness & try to achieve it by yoga , peaceful living ,upholding our own system of family values & sanskar in our children & by doint this we will help in achieving the mental health of our family members.

    Hello Jaishree
    I was not aware of this day is for mental health. It is so true in today's hectic life and spliting of joint families and so much of pressure on people. They are sure to have mental problems like depression, tensions etc.
    Which needs awareness to control they mind by meditations and yoga.

    I never knew there was a special DAY for this ! Mental health is really more important than physical health even, because a mentally fit person can fight physical illnesses better.
