Almost Every culture has its own perspective on mental
health. Some culture has open-minded perspective when it comes to dealing with
mental health issues. Other may look to mental health issues as minor and
dishonorable .whatever, the perspectives are different, mental health issues
are still common problem surrounded by fear, ignorance, and preconception among
most cultures. Many patients with a serious psychological problem are
struggling doubly. They struggle with the disease’s disabilities and symptoms.
And on the other hand, they face a prejudice as result from the wrong
preconception on mental health diseases. Culture in Syria may influence
people’s conception of mental health patients through ignorance,
discrimination, and distortion.  

Despite the great physiological
pressure that many Syrians suffer from in their society and despite the
advanced progress in psychotherapy that is taking place in the modern world,
many people ignore the mental illness. They ignore the treatment in the way
that leads the illness to aggravate and becomes difficult to treat. Forgetting
the fact that some psychological illness may lead to suicide or injury to other
people. Some of them refuse to see a psychiatrist in order to help them
overcome many mental diseases that come from the pressure of life. They feel
ashamed of visiting the psychotherapist because this step would affect their
personal image. They believe this step will associate them the charge of
madness. Most mentally ill patients face a conflict between their presented
personal images and their suppressed self-pressure. Stigma is an expression that
describes how isolating and deeply hurtful people with mental health illness
treated differently. Learning to live with mental health problems is made more
difficult when someone experiences the prejudice caused by stigma. According to

is a significant barrier in the Syrian community to overcome by people who
suffer from psychological issues. Lack of knowledge towards mental disease can
increase the discrimination. People with mental health issues face direct or
indirect discrimination in their life treatment. One of the different ways of
treatment can be found in the workplace. A person with mental disorder finding
difficulties to be hired because many companies refuse to employ him without
considering his qualification. Also, autistic children face discrimination may
be positive or accidental based on unaware attitudes. Actions such as
separation from his classmates lead him to be isolated. In addition, teachers
might have lack of experience dealing with autistic children such as teach
other children how to deal with this kind of illness, provide special treatment
like special educational system. However, most educational institutions in
Syria should try its best to provide the right adequate education based on of
his / her abilities. in the case of absence from school because of illness,
should be treated with special treatment. One of the laws that help to define
discrimination of individuals based on their disability as an illegal act, is
the main disability discrimination law. It bans disability discrimination by
employers against employees with disabilities, and by service providers against
service-users with disabilities.It places a duty on employers and service
providers to make reasonable adjustments for people with disabilities to help
them to overcome barriers they may face in gaining and remaining in employment
and in accessing and using goods and services. According to
This law would be effective in ending the discrimination based on people
disabilities if applied in Syria.            Finally,
media play a major role in the distortion of mental health. Media often provide
an exaggerated distorted image of mental illness patients. The Role of media in
presenting routinely repeated inaccurate stereotypes of a patient with mental
disorders have led many people to gain an incorrect view of those mental
disorders. Media tend to link many negative factors such criminality, dangerousness,
and unpredictability with mental illness people which lead to increase the
distance between them and the rest of the people. There are few misleading
stereotypes the media presented about mental illness. One of them shows that
people with mental diseases are criminal. How many news headlines report a
crime that committed by a mental illness patient? Is hard to pass a day without
a crime committed by a mentally ill person reported on media. Actually, this is
not true. The truth that they are likely to be victimized more than to commit a
crime. Another stereotype the media provide is that mentally ill people look,
unlike other people.

In conclusion, there are many stereotypes cultures have
provided to their own people, led them to treat mental health issues by
ignoramus, differentiation, and misrepresentation. We should present our
mentally ill patients with respect and give them the best care they need. The
culture should be free from those preconceptions that affect negatively on the
health of mentally ill people. Ever culture especially Syria should apply new
ways that help other people understand mental issues such awareness campaigns
about how to deal with al mental diseases patients. Working on the integration
of mentally ill patients in the workplace in the way which can help them
establish their life confidently in the society.
