The progression of mental health has changed and evolved throughout the years. Mental health wasseen as a stigma and to this day that mindset still exists. Social issues as well as economic issues in the1960’s was the main reason for a rise in mental health (Scott and Wolfe, 2015). It’s interesting thatcommunity psychology was born from the turmoil during this era.The mental health response in my community has grown exponentially. In my own practice, I have seenan increase of cases especially after Covid-19. Mental health has progressed to fit the needs of thecommunity and to encompass all competencies. There is a higher emphasis on suicide prevention and arise in anxiety. The response to this in my opinion has been to incorporate group counseling in additionto individuals. What I find unfortunate, is the amount of medicine that is prescribed without anextensive evaluation. It seems that this area of mental health has focused on prescribing to mask theproblem without treating the issues.
