    You’re right Rebby. Unemployment and poverty do contribute to mental illness because of the emotions and thought processes that come with this state in life. However, I would encourage our youths to take heart and not to be afraid to downsize so that they can minimize the stress. Also, youths should be open to alternatives. If they won’t give us the white collar jobs, then lets create our own jobs.

    Your article is a crucial exploration of mental health, shedding light on the signs, causes, and the stark reality that socioeconomic factors contribute significantly to mental health problems. The connection between the lowest income bracket and increased vulnerability to mental health disorders is a poignant observation. The impact of unemployment, especially among the youth, on mental well-being is a stark reminder of the urgent need for systemic changes. Your call to address these issues resonates deeply—mental health is indeed an emerging and critical global concern that demands immediate attention and action.
