Get a whiff of Mental Health

How often have you felt alone although you have lots of company, felt down or depressed, had little interest in doing things, felt bad about yourself, thought that you would be better off dead, had trouble controlling your worries or experienced repetitive upsetting thoughts that are unwanted? WHO estimates that about 7.5 per cent Indians suffer from some mental disorder and predicts that by end of this year roughly 20 per cent of India will suffer from mental illnesses. According to the numbers, 56 million Indians suffer from depression and another 38 million Indians suffer from anxiety disorders.

Still, In India, having a mental health disorder is perceived with a sense of judgement and there is stigma associated with those having mental health issues which deters them to reach out for help at an early stage. Mental disorders are also considered as being a consequence of a lack of self-discipline and willpower. The stigma associated with mental health as well as lack of access, affordability, and awareness lead to significant gaps in treatment. The National Mental Health Survey (NMHS), 2015–16 found that nearly 80% of those suffering from mental disorders did not receive treatment for over a year.

The Covid-19 pandemic has further accentuated this mental health crisis, with reports from across the world suggesting that the Virus and associated lockdowns were having a significant impact on the population — particularly younger individuals.

Hence, is more important especially in these challenging times to seek medical help when needed and to treat ourselves with love. Just like if you broke your leg or got sick, you’d schedule an appointment with your doctor to get better, don’t let the fear of being labeled with mental illness stop you or your loved ones from getting help.Don’t buy into the stigma. Remember to be kind and gentle with yourself.

Here’s a way you can do just that, treat yourself:

Scents are like everything else in the world. They are made of molecules. Different molecules have different scents. When you inhale the scent of a rose, you’re actually inhaling molecules the rose releases into the air. The molecules travel up in your nose and get stuck to your olfactory membrane which contains highly specialized nerve endings called olfactory receptors. Once these nerves recognise a particular scent molecule, they send signals to your olfactory bulb which signals your cortex and limbic system. Next hormones and neurochemicals are released. Different hormones and different neurochemicals create different reactions in your body. So if a rose reminds you of romance, you’re going to be flooded with romantic thoughts or if a lavender relaxes you, your body is filled with relaxing hormones.

That’s where we come in.
