A Broken World – Can Advances in Psychiatric Medicine Help?

We live in a broken world, no doubt. Take a look around. We see more heartache, despair, pain, corruptness, and rising mental health concerns. Can advances in psychiatric medicine help?

People all around the world are exhausted from the COVID-19 pandemic and all the negative change it’s brought about. The resulting economic recession has contributed to the global mental health crisis, with 4 in 10 adults in the U.S. reporting symptoms of a depressive disorder and anxiety. This is up from 1 in 10 adults in June of 2019. Further, a poll performed last July 2020 found that people are reporting difficulty sleeping and eating, experiencing worsening symptoms of chronic health conditions, and have increased use of alcohol consumption and substances. Of those polled, they specifically correlated their deterioration with stress and worry over the coronavirus.

The impact of brokenness

We have all watched this wonderful nation over the last year completely unfold. We have felt sorrow, fear, anxiety, depression, alienation, disappointment, division, insecurity, and uncertainty. For many, this has expanded to division, disillusionment, distrust, anger, pain, grief, and mourning for the loss of loved ones, businesses, and jobs.

Longing for a return of normalcy

With the COVID-19 pandemic, a devastating economy, media wars, heart-wrenching stories of loss, crime, the surfacing of racial wars and injustices that permeate news media, controversy over rights, and laws changing drastically – people long for the return of normalcy.

The chaos is burdening with little hope for a healed nation. It has impacted both, the physical and mental health of people all across the nation (world). Humanity is crying out for hope, change, resolution, explanations, truth, security, and healing for ourselves and our nation.

We can all play a part in restoration

While no one person or entity can ‘fix’ such a broken world, we can all play a part in the restoration. We have a duty to help one another as we work to help ourselves through these triumphant times. Amidst the storm, joy can still be felt, dreams can still be dreamed, relationships can still be restored, healing can still occur, love still exists, and together we can overcome any challenge. But, one thing is for sure, no one can do it alone.
