In our modern societies worldwide, physical health is a very important issue, to which serious attention is always given. A different approach, however, can be witnessed when one deals with mental health.

This may be because a problem of physical health has more evident symptoms than that of mental, or it may be because mental health problems are not always easy to cure. Whatever the reason may be, we should start reversing this condition.
It is not just that mental health is equally important to physical health: it is strongly intertwined. Mental issues can have a very stong impact on one’s physical condition –however, they are rarely attended to. This video was made by the University of Leeds, to underline this problem..
