Too many people are hospitalized when all they need is better care at home. Increase funding for this and education for those who do not understand this issue. Move away from old views that medicine is the complete solution, move away from stereotypes which brand all mentally ill people as the same. Only look towards institutions for those who really have no other option and make those hospitals better funded to make systems that work and those in them are more accepting of. Ban harmful medicines. Stop excluding people with mental health from society and embrace this as a human problem. Increase research budgets not just for treatment but to improve life quality. Break down the long standing wall of ignorance. Make it illegal for media to demonize people with mental health issues. Promote a more positive and supportive system. Stop categorizing with labels such as Bipolar, Schizophrenia e.t.c and realize these are all facets of one condition. Provide better more effective supports for relatives and carers. Stop treating this issue as a social problem and find social solutions. Realize that nobody chooses to be mentally ill. Provide better protection for the vulnerable.
