Hidden trauma

Newspost

January 14, 2018

This refers to the editorial, ‘Hidden costs.’ It is good to note that we have started considering the effects of terror on the mind of people, especially children. In our country, the mere mention that an event can have psychological effects on a person is met with severe criticism. People still consider the subject a big taboo and do not like to have an open discussion about it.

People living in conflict-affected zones are more prone to have mental health issues. According to several healthcare experts, there is a direct relationship between conflict and depression. Many people in these zones are living below the poverty line. They do not have enough resources to have a proper treatment. It is the responsibility of the government to look into this matter. Free consultation should be provided at health camps so that people can deal with trauma in an efficient manner.
