Welcome, this week the Ladies of Hive Community Contest #100 brings us a very important question about mental health, below I give an answer based on my experiences. I invite @tere.alv to participate
¿Sabes cómo ser un defensor efectivo de tu ser querido o amigo cuando está lidiando con un problema de salud mental? ¿Sabe cómo responder, a quién contactar para obtener ayuda? ¿Alguna vez te has enfrentado a un desafío así?
Do you know how to be an effective advocate for your beloved one or friend when they're dealing with a mental health issue? Do you know how to respond, whom to contact for help? Have you ever been faced such a challenge?
Loved ones are the most important thing for me, that is why it has been difficult to face when one of them suffers from any illness, but mental illnesses are always the worst, because they are the ones in which you cannot take a thread and sew up the wound, so Putting yourself in someone else's shoes is the most important thing.
Helping the person to have medical care is the most sensible thing to do, but also the family has a very important role, in my case my late husband had senile dementia and it was a great lesson in patience I had with him, I learned a lot about the disease and As it manifests itself, I also learned to take the idea to him, having patience so that he would let himself be cleaned, cut his hair, nails and change his clothes, not every day he was successful but every day I kept trying, because we can not give up when our loved one needs us.
I have also had members of my family with nervous conditions and lack of sleep, my mother, may she rest in peace, began to get sick due to insomnia, in those years she only took medication to sleep but these over time caused her even more damage, I think that was a time when my sisters and I felt powerless, but even so we were always taking care of my mom, because this is what a family should do, support, care for and find a way for the sick person not to feel alone .
Every day more people suffer from the mind, many times they are people who do not have family, that's why you should be kind to people in general and to friends, if a person comes to us for help we should listen to the person, let them vent and try not to judge, even accompany the person to seek professional help if necessary.
