In 2017 I spent 7 months at a psychiatric clinic. Mental Health, while once overlooked by the majority of the population as a result of the Jamaican culture, has been of late been receiving a lot of attention through sensitization and knowledge of the seriousness of the matter. Research suggests that there is a stigma attached to the issue of mental health, especially in the Caribbean and there is a lack of knowledge and willingness surrounding treatment of these illnesses. There is even the problem of persons living with these illnesses seeking medical or psychological from professionals as they have negative attitudes toward them accepting that they have a mental disorder. However, results from a study conducted show that Jamaican adolescents are more susceptible to seek professional psychological help than their elders.
