With depression serving to undermine many lives, in a society that seems to offer little by the way of support and advice relevant to the individual needs, there IS an urgent cry for the respect of humanity and personal integrity alike?
Too often we see vulnerable people being left to deal with their difficulties alone, or with little ‘effective’ assistance.
Minor bouts of worry being ‘allowed’ to manifest into depression, which leads into clinical consequences. Too often a demand for help being offset against cost and a lack of committed time, resulting in greater cost and time, leading to potential suicide or self harming?
There has to be more proactive leadership in these fields and human needs being given an ‘above adequate’ response to their worries. Every person lost to mental illness, smears society with the damning truth of its inadequacies. The unknown quantity of these failures, may well be limiting the future of mankind and the development of a social integrity, fit for the 21st Century?
We all aspire to help those around us. Well, most of us?
When society is being treated with contempt and those within it are forced into poverty and homelessness, let’s not forget that there are thousands who must fulfil a deeper humanitarian role, irrespective of the pain being suffered by the wider population?
Carers must ‘perform’ under pressure, every single day of every single year. Their time is rarely their own and their efforts met with limited remittance and, some times, social contempt? To believe a Carer has an easy life, and “gets paid for being at home”, indicates a lack of educated ability and a naivety to accept the advantages of these Care-givers. Society would, actually, be in dire straits if Carers were unavailable for community service? Be in no doubt, the financial benefit, that these people provide to society, is extremely bias in favour of the community and the greater prosperity of social integrity?
Supporting those who ‘care’ is a service to all who may become ‘less able’, at any time in their lives.
