It seems that more and more people are starting to suffer from mental illness. Some people may think that this is a hoax. They would think that people are just “acting out.” Mental illness is more prominent right now because people are feeling more pressured and more stressed to do well in their lives.

For example, there is pressure on people to make more money, to go on more vacations, and so much more. They know that if they would not be able to live up to that expectations, they will not be well-regarded by their peers. In this day and age, a lot of people still base their happiness and their satisfaction with what other people would say and this makes the probability of acquiring mental illness more likely.
