“Life is indeed colourful. We can feel in the pink one day, with our bank balances comfortably in the black, and the grass seemingly no greener on the other side of the fence. Then out of the blue, something tiresome happens that makes us see red, turn ashen white, even purple with rage. Maybe controlling our varying emotions is just ‘colour management’ by another name.” –Alex Morritt Impromptu Scribe
If you ask us, we will without hesitation confirm the fact that emotional health has comparatively more stressful impacts on our well-being than other diseases. And, undoubtedly when our emotional health is in bad state, even our self-esteem turns out be in equally poor condition. Unfortunately, unlike physical illnesses, which are tangible enough to be diagnosed for appropriate care, emotional or psychological illnesses are difficult to be identified as most of the times symptoms are seen as nothing but merely as behavioural disruptions or personality disorder beyond cure.
With the coming up of newer workplace challenges & a stressful socioeconomic environment, innovators are now coming up with online solutions comprising interesting context-based modules with tips and exercises to allow users to identify whether their condition pinpoints to an ongoing stressful phase or not. Moreover, these tools are not only becoming popular among the common masses, particularly in the urban spaces, but are also emerging as a necessary part of the clinical practice or consultation. These tools are also proving to be a remarkable medium to remove the stigma attached with emotional illnesses or mental diseases by spreading awareness on the need to have such platforms to discuss ‘stress’ rising among people.
eHEALTH Magazine as the voice of the healthcare sector strongly aims to highlight rising emotional health crisis among people who come across as happier and healthier but are silently wrestling with the negative impacts of stress. With this goal in mind, we present exclusive interviews of healthcare stakeholders providing innovative solution in this domain.
