There’s no such thing called mental health. It’s just a term some sick people use as an excuse to attempt suicides and lock themselves up in their room for days. Isn’t it crystal clear that a person is faking it all up when he is not being able to concentrate on his work or studies, have eating disorders and panic in crowded places occasionally? He is simply fooling everyone else, right? He just wants some attention, that’s why he is acting so weird lately.
Here are some solid reasons that’ll make you believe that mental health is not at all important.

1. Depression, You Kidding Me?
Feeling extremely upset at times is, of course, a normal thing for an average human being. I get sad when I watch a romantic drama, I’m not going through depression, how can another person say he is going through it? It’s not like he has any medical reasons to convince me that it’s not all in his head. Okay, I admit the psychiatrist said it can be genetic or hereditary, but I don’t believe him. I’m sure the psychiatrist has faked his certificate too. As per statistics, India is the most depressed country in the world right now with one in every twenty persons going through depression. Well, statistics are never right.
2. World Mental Health Day Is Fake
Don’t you think people observe 10 October for no good reason? Mental health is not a problem at all and the World Health Organization (WHO) is probably just trying to show that it is an actual crisis when it’s not. The estimated 10.7 % of the world’s population who are assumed to have mental illness are all faking it up. The theme of the 2019 World Mental Health Day was suicide prevention. Though a majority of the 800,000 suicides occurring every year occur due to the person having some mental illness, not all of them are linked to mental health. So, mental health is not something very important.
3. The Mental Healthcare Act Is A Joke
I wonder why such an unimportant thing is being given so much attention. India has an Act regarding mental health care that promotes to preserve the rights of the people having a mental illness. The Mental Healthcare Act was enacted in 2017 as a step against the rising mental health issues in the country due to the stigma attached to this issue. How silly.
4. We Don’t Have This In Our Family
Considering everything so far I’m still pretty sure that mental health is not an actual thing. Besides, no one in our family has such imaginary issues. I know my brother never comes out of his room and I hear him crying every other night. He has no friends and his grades are low too. Last time I found him with a razor in hand in the bathroom. He is just being a normal teenage boy. He isn’t going through depression, or is he? Pfft.
Mental health is very important. I hope you can see through the veils of sarcasm and understand the importance of its awareness.
