There is strong stigma surrounding mental health in Pakistan, leading to discrimination against people suffering from mental health problems. Many people see mental illness as a sign of weakness or a shame to hide. Awareness about mental health and illness is lacking in Pakistan. Many people do not understand the nature and causes of mental health problems and do not know how to recognize the signs or seek help. The lack of mental health facilities and services in Pakistan makes it difficult for people to get the help they need. This can be especially difficult in rural areas where mental health professionals are few and far between. Many people in Pakistan believe that mental health problems are caused by supernatural or spiritual factors and that traditional remedies and beliefs can cure them. They may become unable to seek help and lack understanding of the nature of mental health problems. Poverty, lack of education, and lack of access to medical care all contribute to the taboo surrounding mental health in Pakistan. People struggling with mental health problems may not have the necessary resources or support to seek help, which can make the problem worse.IQRA SHAHZADI , Islamabad.
