Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want mental health care is accessible for everyone, integrated within the universal health care. People would easily consult professional -- psychologist or psychiatrist about their psychological well-being without considering the price and the stigma surrounds. That would mean that people may have direct access to professionals at the public health center, school, at university, and in the workplace.
It's all part of making a better world.
The population would have fewer mental health problems and everyone would have optimum life (not losing their productivity caused by disability-adjusted life year/DALY), everyone would be able to cope with stress and lessen the risk of suicide attempt and suicide cases. We could focus on finding ways to mitigate mental health problems caused by adverse childhood experiences and genetic factors instead.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by vulnerable groups and populations in general. For example, minority groups, low social-economic, students at-risk for bullying, individuals with adverse childhood experience and violence problems at home, individuals with drug-abuse problems, university students with adaptation issues with the burden of academic targets, workers, parents, and elderly population
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
More professional for each person (comparison to population)
Promotive, preventive, and curative efforts implemented
Accessible and high-quality mental health services at the public health center
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
Minimum one institution providing mental health service in each university (pilot), financially accessible and widely known among students, equipped with professional in quality or quantity
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
