Coass life: Psychiatry? Checked!

Today marks the end of my fourth department in my clinical clerkship life. Psychiatry has always been one of the subjects Im interested in and in these four weeks I've learnt a lot about healthy mental life. WHO defined health as "a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." Sometimes people dont really care about mental problems because it's been stereotyped in the society that when you have mental problems, it means you're "crazy" whereas these problems consist of major and minor mental disorder. When a person has a mental disorder, either major or minor, family and social support are really important. After all these times learning about it, finally I can get a better understanding of what I need to do and what I should do when I face a problem that's out of my prediction. I should have a positive coping mechanism. It's normal if someone's panicked because of a problem but it's not normal if someone's panicked because of nothing. Just a random night thought though.
