Mental Illness in Pakistan
It has been recently estimated that there has been an almost 100 per cent rise in the incidence of mental disorders, particularly stress and depression, in the country over the past 10 years, mainly due to the issues of personal insecurity, poverty, lack of education, rising inflation and ramshackle power supply. Through various sources it can be quoted that the prevalence of mental health disorder had increased immensely in Pakistan (30-60 per cent) and there is a dearth of trained psychiatrists.

• Phases of high moods lasting for days or less alternating with phases of low mood lasting for weeks.

• Lack of interest in daily life activities e.g. family responsibilities, job, studies and social life.

• Loss of memory and lack of concentration and spans if inattention and forgetfulness.

• Isolation or withdrawal from society, neglecting the self care, not taking shower or baths for days or even weeks, no concern with whatever might be happening around and complete detachment from reality.

• Hearing voices of one, two or more persons through one's ears like we hear true voices, when there are no such persons are present in reality.

• Having false beliefs, which are held with absolute conviction, which are not changeable by reasoning, which are usually bizarre e.g. a person believing that some foreign forces are spying on him and are going to kill him or a person is convinced that he has some special powers and abilities, etc.

• Feelings of apprehension, unknown fear, something worst is going to happen and inability to fall or maintain sleep.

• Repetitive thoughts which may seem absurd to the person but one is unable to control such thoughts and resulting in ritualistic compulsions e.g. repeated hand washing, repeated checking of locks, or checking the stove many times to make sure it’s really turned off etc.

• Medically unexplained and unresolved symptoms e.g. longstanding body aches and pains, muscular stiffness, stomach aches, constipation, loose motions, weakness of one arm or one side of body or whole body etc.

• Episodes of fits which does not fall in the true epilepsy and most of the times relate to increased stress or family discords.

• Severe hyperactivity in the children i.e. inability to sit on chair, inability to focus on one task, no understanding of getting involved in dangerous situations e.g. running while crossing busy roads, climbing on trees or poles etc

• Learning difficulties and disabilities in children and associated behavioral problems and non-compliance towards parents and teachers rather most of the times doing those things first and frequently which they are stopped to do.

• Physical dependence on drugs of abuse like He**in and other Opiates, Cannabis (Charas, Garda, Ma*****na), Alcohol, Co***ne, Crystal M**h etc. As the drug use increases, one may finds that it becomes increasingly difficult to go without the drug. Stopping may cause intense cravings and makes one feel physically ill (withdrawal symptoms).

Feeling that one has to use the drug regularly — this can be daily or even several times a day
Failing in the attempts to stop using the drug

Focusing more and more time and energy on getting and using the drug
Not being able to fulfill family responsibilities, remains absent from work, becomes socially withdrawn
Emotional instability and undue aggression which may turn into formal mood and thought disorders
