英検1級2次試験:Should more be done to increase awareness of mental-health issues in Japan?

Should more be done to increase awareness of mental-health issues in Japan?

(日本におけるメンタルヘルスの問題に対する意識を高めるために、もっとやるべき事があるか?)

 

I agree with the idea that more should be done to increase awareness of mental-health issues in Japan.

I have two reasons to support my opinion.

 

First, we can better understand about how we should talk with the patients appropriately. For example, when someone broke his or her bone, then we can relatively easily imagine how much he or she is suffering from the pain because it’s tangible. Whereas, mental-health issues are intangible. So, many people often hurt patients without even realizing it. In order to avoid such problem, individuals should make more efforts to understand the details about the diseases.

 

Second, it would contribute to fewer financial burden for patients, and even the government. According to the research institution in Japan, the number of patients with depression has increased dramatically in the last few decades. However, by trying to decrease the number, the government will be able to allocate more budgets for medical care for the elderly people.

 

From these two reasons, I believe that more should be done to increase awareness of mental-health issues in Japan. (178 words)
