Study Discovers Heightened Mental Health Crisis in Ohio

A recent study carried out by our sources revealed that Ohio is ranked 38th out of the 50 states in the U.S. in terms of mental health, indicating a disproportionate mental health disaster among the residents. The study employed a varied array of parameters such as average income, recorded rates of psychological distress, instances of poor mental health days, opportunities for physical exercise, physical inactivity rate, and life expectancy. The data which informed these parameters were sourced from our insider contacts at the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. The glaring conclusion of the study paints a bleak picture where Ohioans experience significantly more poor mental health days and fall prey to common mental distress 14% more frequently than the typical American.

Apparent Physical Inactivity Despite Ample Exercise Facilities

Interestingly, the study found that although there are exercise facilities available to Ohio residents about 84% of the time, a worrying 24% of the population still lead inactive lives. Comparisons with other states show that those with the lowest mental health ratings are West Virginia, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama, and Kentucky. On the brighter end of the spectrum, residents of Hawaii, Massachusetts, and New Jersey have reported the healthiest mental conditions.

February Dedicated to Amplifying Self-Esteem

In the global arena, the month of February is recognized as the International Boost Your Self-Esteem Month, thus underlining the pivotal role of self-esteem in shaping an individual’s quality of life. Our mental health correspondents at the Mercy Health Outpatient Behavioral Health Institute stress how the level of self-esteem directly affects health, productivity, and overall life satisfaction. Consequently, low self-esteem can culminate in negative feelings and consequent deterioration in the quality of life.

Responsive Techniques to Bolster Self-Esteem

Experts from The Calli Institute recommend using Rosenberg’s online self-esteem scale to gauge one’s present self-esteem level. Furthermore, as part of their public awareness drive in February, Mercy Health made public their recommended five methods to realize one’s self-worth. This involves countering negative self-perception, seeking reasons to smile, acknowledging individual quirks, mastering the art of accepting compliments, and habitually expressing gratitude. These procedures, they argue, are integral to assisting individuals in fostering a more positive perspective on life and enhancing their mental health in the process.
