Mental health issue is a growing concern in today’s modern world. It is a battle that an individual fights within. In most cases, underlying symptoms remain concealed, making diagnosis very difficult.
The individuals suffering from mental health issues are not aware of their condition in most cases. Their loved one might point out changes in their behaviour, but it remains undiagnosed until it takes its severe form.
It is advised to everyone to reach out to those who might have symptoms of mental health issues. Due to its stigma, individuals suffering from mental health issues often find it hard to seek professional health.
It is very brave of Tim Membrey to get treatment for his condition. Fans and friends have outpored support for him in this crucial time.
