Pasaule saskaras ar nepieredzētu depresijas, pašnāvību un garīgās veselības problēmu pieaugumu.

Saskaņā ar PVO Pasaules garīgās veselības ziņojumu, kas publicēts 2022. gada jūnijā, pirmajā pandēmijas gadā depresija un trauksme pieauga par 25%, tādējādi to cilvēku skaits, kuri dzīvo ar garīgiem traucējumiem, sasniedz gandrīz vienu miljardu cilvēku.

Lai risinātu dažas no pašreizējām problēmām saistībā ar garīgo veselību, 22. maijā Eiropas Parlamentā Briselē notika domnīca, ko vadīja Eiropas Parlamenta deputāts Ryszard Czarnecki un kuru vadīja Gurudevs Šri Ravi Šankars.attēlotie). Think Tank pievērsās un apsprieda inovatīvus risinājumus garīgās veselības uzlabošanai, ko var palielināt globālai ietekmei, garīgās veselības un miera veidošanas savstarpējo saistību, jaunākos pētījumus par garīgo veselību un garīgās veselības centieniem kā konkurences priekšrocību darba vietā.

“Mental health is one of the greatest challenges the world is facing today. Whether it is in developing or developed countries, in war or peace zones, it is an issue that affects the entire world,” said Gurudev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar.

Despite the worrying increase of mental health issues, however, there is still a prejudice around it, Gurudev stressed. A person cannot be treated unless they admit they have an issue and need help, which is already a courageous first step, but in today’s judgemental world, such an admission could put their job or relationships at stake, so people tend to hide their problems.

Stress is one of the biggest causes of mental health, which can be managed through a healthy life balance, but for that people “need a little bit of care and attention”. Unlike with physical health however, there are no “mental hygiene” courses in school. “More than half of the violence in the world comes from mental health challenges”, Shankar said. “In the US, more than 600 mass shootings have happened over the past 6 months. The cause for this is mental health.”

Lai samazinātu garīgās veselības problēmas visā pasaulē, mums vispirms ir jārisina sabiedrības aizspriedumi, bet pēc tam dažāda veida aizspriedumi, ko mēs sevī mīt, saistīti ar dzimumu, reliģiju, klasi vai kategoriju, ieteica Gurudevs. Joga un meditācija var arī ievērojami veicināt veselīgu dzīvesveidu, savukārt sociālā mijiedarbība, nevis caur sociālajiem medijiem, bet gan tikšanās ar cilvēkiem reālajā dzīvē, var palīdzēt izārstēt traumas.

“The mission of politics is to ensure the common good, nationally and globally, but we can’t ensure common good based of fear and anger,” said Alojz Peterle, former prime minister of Slovenia.

“I am not a doctor, but I understand that a fragmented world means fragmented people and the more fragmented we are, the more mental health issues we will have,” added Peterle, exemplifying how suicide rates in Slovenia decreased by 10% after the country joined the European Union, as people had new hope brough on by the sense of belonging to a community sharing the same values and principles.

“No single organization can handle the mental health crisis alone. Governments, healthcare institutions and NGOs must join forces to create comprehensive mental health strategies. Together we can create a healthier and more resilient society,” Ryszard Czarnecki said.

Polijā centros visā valstī ir ieviests garīgās veselības plāns, lai bez maksas palīdzētu kopienām, skaidroja Polijas veselības ministrs Ādams Niedzielskis. Ārstēšanas plānus izstrādā speciālisti, pamatojoties uz viņu attiecībām ar personu, kas piedzīvo garīgās veselības krīzi. Kopš 2019. gada 380 no šiem centriem ir veltīti bērniem un pusaudžiem.

“A sad face should not be allowed to exist because each one of us should take responsibility to bring the factor of happiness, then we can make society a better place,” Shankar pointed out. 

Moreover, since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, Poland set has up medical centres for mental health along the border as well as across the country to support Ukrainian refugees in their trauma recovery, providing them equal access to healthcare as to Polish citizens and conducting information campaigns in refugee camps. “Wars do not only cause physical wounds, but also wounds to the mind, which can be harder to heal,” Gurudev said.

Shankar’s International Association for Human Values (IAHV) and Art of Living have also managed to set up over  400 workshops for Ukrainians both inside Ukraine and in Europe, helping more than 5,000 Ukrainians currently located in over 20 countries. They were taught how to self-manage stress, insomnia, despair ad traumatic symptoms.
