Madness and mental illness


An article on “Madness and mental illness” by Dr. Mythili Hazarika, the President of the Society for Mental Health in LAMIC (SoMHiL) was published in the vernacular (i.e. Assamese) daily newspaper, KHOBOR’s Sunday Edition wherein she focused how we all in the current scenario, post-Karbi Anglong lynching incident had lost our minds and can term ourselves as ‘insane’. But, medicine or psychotherapy alone is not our cure. We need to build up our empathy and genuineness for others by contributing our time, education, and humanitarian selves for the betterment of our environment in our own levels. Just talking, condemning, and showing madness is not the solution to the grave issues. Government, NGOs, and individuals should form some task forces in their own local areas and work to eradicate the ‘insanity’ in each one of our so-called normal individuals.
