Van Gough: A Beautiful Depression
A research conducted by the BPKHF, Nepal points out three major causes for depression among Nepali women:
* Marital Conflicts
* Socio-economic Stress
* A family member with a serious health problem
The most vulnerable are the women of the age group 20-50, especially the pregnant ones.
Children & women are worst affected by the wars & social unrests.
The findings are strikingly similar to the researches conducted all over the the world.
This also shows the universal nature of human suffering.
No wonder that ‘like parents, like children.’
Reminds of reading somewhere that the greatest thing a man can do for his kids is to respect their mother.
However, it should also be noted that men’s violent nature itself is an indication of underlying mental disorders.
Therefore, looking at such universal psychological problems through the dogmatic feministic perspective would be equally fallacious.
Nevertheless, every life can always be prevented from ending up as a tragedy by some sort of positive interventions.
It’s also said the greatest sin is to worry, for a worried person creates a painful aura around him.
Mental disorders, especially depression – a major cause of tremendous sufferings and suicides, can be managed very efficiently if not cured.
Almost all sorts of negative & destructive behaviors like alcoholism, aggressiveness, addictions, obsessiveness, fanaticism, phobias, anxieties, apathy, mood swings, etc, etc, can be taken one or the other form of mental disorders.
* Psychiatric medications
* Psychological Counselling & Therapies
* A Spiritual Outlook
* Meditation Techniques
are the greatest discoveries made for the mental well-being of the human civilization.
