My group is potentially interested in looking into the problem of mental health. Mental health is basically scoffed at in the public sphere. We tell people to “suck it up” or “just be happier” as if changing your mood is that simple. We receive much more attention for physical injuries but when it comes to mental problems we are often left to fend for ourselves. The percentage of those affected by depression in America is rising and yet we continue to ignore it. The suicide rate is on the rise and yet we continue to joke that psychiatrists aren’t “real” doctors. This needs to stop and my group would like to show just how big the problem of mental health is in America.
