Mental health is an integral and essential component of health. The WHO constitution states: “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” An important implication of this definition is that mental health is more than just the absence of mental disorders or disabilities.
Mental health is a state of well-being in which an individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and is able to make a contribution to his or her community.
Mental health is fundamental to our collective and individual ability as humans to think, emote, interact with each other, earn a living and enjoy life. On this basis, the promotion, protection and restoration of mental health can be regarded as a vital concern of individuals, communities and societies throughout the world.
Impacts of Trauma
Trauma affects everyone differently. Trauma is often caused by an overwhelming, negative event or expeience that can have a short or long-term impact on the victim’s mental, emotional and physical stablity.
Domestic and Sexual Abuse
Domestic and sexual abuse is a reality that leaves victims physically, mentally, and emotionally charred. At times, these effects are so devastating, victims can be forever traumatized.
Of utmost importance is the recognition that victims rarely, if ever, engage the rest of the society regarding contusing and distressing experiences that accompany domestic and or sexual abuse. Feelings of shame, embarrassment, and stigma prevent the victims from reporting the ordeals.
Sexual assault and domestic abuse is a substantial mental health and welfare issue all around the globe. For many victims, the after-effects can be wide-ranging and lifelong. Victims of sexual assault are not only affected physically; victims can also be affected mentally over the long term, disrupting their day-to-day life, sleeping patterns, their perceptions, interactions within relationships and others perceive them and how they perceive themselves. Sexual abuse can be physical, non-physical, verbal, boundary violation, exposure, emotional exploitation and neglect.
According to the Australian Government, Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, it is recorded that almost 2 million people over 18 have experienced at least one sexual assault since the age of fifteen and that half of the assaulted women did not seek professional help after their most recent incident of sexual assault, perpetrated by a male.
