The mental health survey is alarming. Worldwide, more than one in three people in most countries report sufficient criteria for at least one of the criteria for diagnosis of mental illness at some point in their life. In the United States, 46% qualify for a mental illness at some point.
Acute mental illness is characterised by significant and distressing symptoms of a mental illness requiring immediate treatment.This may be the person's first experience of mental illness, a repeat episode or the worsening of symptoms of an often continuing mental illness. Patients need close monitoring preferably in hospital set up and multi-dimensional treatment to avoid harm to themselves or others in society.
Homeopathic perspective: Hahnemann was agonized by suffering of ill and the treatment received by patients of mental illness. This suffering was the pivotal reason why he left allopathic medicine and discovered the spiritual science of homeopathy. He had special concerns for mentally ill patients, so, he started his 1st mental hospital and generated brilliant insight into the suffering which is reflected in aphorisms 210 to 230 in the Organon.
