One out of five people struggle with what they need to do due to their mental health.  With this in mind, how can we make healthcare for mental health more accessible?

There are several solutions found for mental health throughout the years - therapy, medications, and the like, but these are costly and are not attainable for all. We live in a world where there is much progress on the mental health stigma but there is still ways to go into unearthing all the truths about mental health. Despite this, there are actually natural solutions that are within our reach and will allow prevention of a continuous decline of mental health. This is attainable by going to the root cause and understanding what factors affect the state of our mental health.
