Carrie Fisher Death Cause: People With Mental Issues Tend To Hide Problems
Everyone was curious about Carrie Fisher death cause. The "Star Wars" actress passed away on December 27, 2016 and has left a legacy in the field of mental health. The actress was known for being an inspiration for those who are struggling with mental illness and addiction.
"We have been given a challenging illness, and there is no other option than to meet those challenges. Think of it as an opportunity to be heroic - not "I survived living in Mosul during an attack" heroic, but an emotional survival. An opportunity to be a good example to others who might share our disorder," Fisher wrote to a person with bipolar disorder.
As per Business Insider, mental illness is common. Professor Bethany Teachman explained that at least 25% to 50% of the population will have an encounter with mental illness at some point in their lives. Hence, the famous issue of the Carrie Fisher death cause. She continues to say that when people acknowledge the struggles and deem it normal, treatment is then easier to get.
Teachman says that people with social anxiety disorder usually wait for a long time, ranging from 15-25 years before seeking treatment. As mental issues are considered a stigma and a serious problem, sufferers choose to hide it and keep on struggling for years.
Irish Times also reports that a survey of 1,366 attendees was performed in First Fortnight last year in January and found that 49 percent of the people did not want to anyone to know about their condition.
