Is our mental health declining worldwide? ‘Man should really start looking for meaning now’

meaning-of-lifeThe number of people having the challenges of depression is probably more than the official figures. I don’t know the actual figures of today. But in USA, 6.7 percent of population is diagnosed with a episode of depression.

In India, the challenge is not just the number of people but the number of psychologists available, its a few thousand for entire population and another challenge is the skill set of the psychologists available.

Most people have experienced some small encounters with depression or depressive thinking at least in some point of their life.

Yes, it’s declining worldwide, just check your daily news.

There’s less of meaning left for many as they see it, due to various challenges at family(disturbed/broken family situation), lack of direct communication among people (loneliness), financial challenges, relationship issues, socio-cultural pressures, addictions, lack of exercise & nutrition, loss of loved ones, hectic life style and so on.

One of the best ways to find a meaning in life and change your old meanings about past.

Viktor Frankl, a Psychiatrist, was a holocaust survivor, his tells about his experience as a prisoner at a Nazi Camp, and tells why certain people, including him, survived through the worst experiences in life anyone has ever been in his book ‘Man’s Search for Meaning’, one of the must reads, in which he describes his much famous ‘Logo Therapy’ and how one can use it.

He says its about meaning or purpose you create about your experience and your purpose/intention/mission in life helps you go beyond the worst experiences of your life.

“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” – Viktor Frankl.

Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is the process of learning through experience, and is more specifically defined as "learning through reflection on doing". Hands-on learning is a form of experiential learning but does not necessarily involve students reflecting on their product. Experiential learning is distinct from rote or didactic learning, in which the learner plays a comparatively passive role. It is related to but not synonymous with other forms of active learning such as action learning, adventure learning, free choice learning, cooperative learning, and service learning.
