It took a pandemic to bring mental health and mental wellness into the fold of normal society. But why is no one talking about the fractured public mental healthcare system?

  1. Which is also sad when you think about it. Our society only really cares about the extroverts. Not the introverts.

    But nonetheless I do agree that we need to talk about it. And we need more programs to fight it.

  2. I feel like people think it’s normal for the healthcare system to be overwhelmed right now, despite that being a very wrong opinion. If it happened without the pandemic, I think people would want to tackle the issue rather than ignore it. It’s nice to see that someone else has thought about this.

  3. I mean my school is doing a lot more discussion on it. But it’s more that ppl in the world r worried about catching the virus or being forced to work in unsafe conditions and what that’ll mean for bills. I think ppl recognize it but there’s just a lot going on

  4. One reason may be that the public mental healthcare system is fractured. There are many different parts to it, and it can be difficult to understand how it works. Another reason may be that people are uncomfortable talking about mental health and mental illness.

  5. Western society, especially American culture, is centered around individualism. Basically most people think mental health is a “you” problem and it’s not anyone else’s job to care. Pretty fucked if you ask me
