Very often psychological problems stem from unhappiness from various situations in life, like the break-up of a relationship, death of someone we love, unemployment, feeling of no longer being loved by friends or family, loneliness but to name a few.
The symptoms of unhappiness can often be mistaken for or associated with mental illness, which isn’t often the case.
However it’s very easy for a doctor to prescribe unnecessary medication/drugs to combat the way people feel.
Pharmaceutical companies are making millions from so many ailments that can simply be treated by. ‘Just talking’ Being listened to’ or simple by ‘Being there’ when needed.
Don’t get me wrong I’m not saying that Mental Health is not an issue, of course it is, but the medical profession need to differentiate between the two.
It’s all too easy to throw some pills at individuals and leave them to get on with it, they say that the NHS is drained of resources, NO, The government, doctors and pharmaceutical companies are making way too much money so aren’t about to have you go off and talk to someone who can help you.
There are of course more serious issues that do need addressing and again throwing pills at people isn’t always the answer, in fact some of these drugs they give to patients are actually making the situation worse.
