Kailasa’s Humanitarian Response To Mental Health
The influence of mental disorders on physical health conditions is largely underestimated because of inadequate connectedness between the two. Without mental health and stability there can be no health. A Report on Mental Health and Development (by the UN in 2010), called attention to people with mental disorders as a vulnerable group highly subject to influence and mockery, human-rights violations and exclusion from society and decision-making that affected them. Today, the COVID-19 pandemic is far more deeper and intricate than a health crisis, it has the seeds of a major mental health crisis as well, if action is not taken at once.
While the pandemic has already caused a direct impact on unprepared medical systems and secondary havoc on fragile policies, it has generated disproportionately high levels of coping incapacities of the virus due to the upsurge in mental health concerns and doubled the distress due to pre existing lack of investment in mental health promotion, prevention and care before the pandemic. The woefully underinflated mental health care systems and services needs to be addressed without delay to shrink the immense suffering among thousands of millions of people and alleviate long-term and large-scale psychological distress in populations leading to social and economic dip. The mental health and wellbeing of whole societies have been severely impacted by this crisis and are a priority to be addressed urgently.
Behavioural and mental-illness such as depression, anxiety disorders, ADHD, mood disturbances, substance use, suicidal behaviour, aggressive/disruptive behaviour and so on are the top-tier mental disorders in neglected adolescents and young adults who are the future of tomorrow.
In every community, senior citizens with pre-existing health conditions are terrified and lonely. Emotional awkwardness among children and adolescents are intensified by family stress, social isolation, with some facing increased abuse, disrupted education and uncertainty about their futures, amplifying at critical points in their psychological development.
Good mental health is critical to the functioning of society at the most challenging of times. It must be front and centre of every country during COVID-19 and otherwise.
Over 26 years, the Department of Human Services has been devoted to strengthening and redefining the ideals of psychological healing, spiritual counselling, helping human beings mentally, emotionally, psychologically by operating with the single unified goal of felicitating every individual to explore their ultimate possibility by enlightening them with the sciences mentioned in the timeless Hindu source scriptures. WHITE OM works towards this very challenge by deploying thousands of trained healers and creating the conditions to allow mental wellness to hold and flourish in collaboration with ShriKailasa Uniting Nations for Mental Health and Development.

PREVALENCE AND RELEVANCE
Mental disorders are known to be prevalent and highlighted in the general population which highly impairs life and role functions . Mental health and substance use disorders affect 13% of the world’s population. Influences of mental disorders perpetuate a negative cycle of poverty and social exclusion and include loss of work productivity in life.
Mental health disorders in youth and adults create disparities in their economic integration and social interaction. Mental-health conditions restrict the ability to engage, to complete their goal and to obtain the critical skills needed for respective employment and career, stunting one’ highest potential in several activities. This, in turn, puts them at increased risk of future unemployment and disruptions in their individual economic growth.
These data illustrate the significant burden associated with mental-health conditions WHO states, ‘ Health systems have not yet adequately responded to the burden of mental disorders. As a consequence, the gap between the need for treatment and its provision is wide all over the world. In low- and middle-income countries, between 76% and 85% of people with mental disorders receive no treatment for their disorderhttps://www.who.int/news-room/fact-sheets/detail/mental-disorders.1 This report shows the emergency and the urgency required to work in innovative directions to reach out to the unmatched constellations of people around the world suffering silently with Mental health issues.
Mental health issues provide a trajectory to suicide, WHO released the stats stating, ‘ Suicide is a global phenomenon; in fact, 77% of suicides occurred in low- and middle-income countries in 2019. Suicide accounted for 1.3% of all deaths worldwide, making it the 17th leading cause of death in 2019.’
Therefore, the prevention of mental-health conditions must be a global public-health priority.
COVID-19 is deepening the mental health crisis in the world’s medical hotspots and creating new epicentres of disorders related to Mental health across the globe. The pandemic is the final straw for millions of people already struggling with Bereavement, loneliness, loss of job ad income and fear that are triggering mental health conditions or worsening the existing ones.
Due to the ongoing crisis of COVID pandemic, all economic and healthcare policies, principles, and systems need to be revised to make sure no human being suffers from hunger or the absence of required medical care. In ancient indigenous Hindu scriptures, Paramashiva (primordial Hindu divinity) has declared for survival needs – such as food and healthcare – barter and charity are recommended for commoners, but as for the state it is expected it provides these for free to all.
The International Humanitarian Agency WHITE OM For mental health and Well-Being is a comprehensive approach to address the needs to improve the organizational capacities to prevent and protect mental health and the well being of Humanity. Working toward the unified goal to provide A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being that is based on the satisfaction of material, physical, affective and psychological needs. Providing the highest attainable standard of health operating from the fundamental rights of every human being without distinction of race, religion, political belief, economic or social condition.’
The international humanitarian agency WHITE OM has made the noble legacy of medical service and healthcare expand worldwide through all de facto spiritual embassies of KAILASA, in multi-specialties, multi-disciplines, blending both Western medicine and traditional indigenous Hindu systems of medicine. It is essential to use all available tools to overcome erroneous beliefs about mental conditions and promulgate social integration, through information promotion and research to counter stereotypes
and negative attitudes. Efforts to minimize stigma need to occur at a societal
level. They should include training for practitioners and families, in order to
create the opportunity for, and acceptance of, accessing services. A large number of programmes and policies offered by the WHITE OM agency have been identified as effective, the vast majority of the research has been conducted with positive and progressive results.
The international humanitarian agency WHITE OM has seen fair success in terms of providing equitable access to healthcare services, WHITE OM has been offering free healthcare to all, irrespective of race, religion, creed, or political affiliation, even in crises such as cyclones and COVID-19 pandemics.
Health is a state of physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual well-being where the individual feels life is good. Ideologies and misconceptions held by the modern day man are the root cause of lack of health among humans. Cognitions based upon health must be built on the Cosmic Principles. Health is when the body aligns to its purpose. The ability to handle all the diseases, creating health, maintaining the health & awakening extraordinary powers of the body becomes very easy.
99% of humanity’s problems are mental health related. Over 10.7% of the world are victims of mental disorders and are in need of desperate psychological counselling for their well being. The responsibility of their well-being is borne by the psychiatrists and counselors. However, if the counselors do not understand the existence of the consciousness, they are going to heavily damage the people whom they are counseling. Counseling is nothing but giving mental patterns. If the wrong patterns are cherished, then the transmission of wrong patterns from the counselor to the patient will take course. True counselors must have discovered and implemented effective answers for their own life problems.
The profession in which largest number of people commit suicide is psychiatry and counseling. The reason being, without having answers for all the important questions; having wrong, broken, incomplete patterns, they go on giving these patterns to others. When they understand everything is a lie. They do not know what is true. They do not have hope for life. They do not know why life? What for life? What is life? So the immediate decision they take even with the small depression is suicide.
At times such as now, the science of completion as revealed in the e Śānti Mantra first Upaniṣad, Īśāvāsya Upaniṣad is of dire importance.
औं पूर्णमदह् पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते । पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते ॥
auṁ pūrṇamadah pūrṇamidaṃ pūrṇāt pūrṇamudacyate । pūrṇasya pūrṇamādāya pūrṇamevāvaśiṣyate ॥
Aum. This is Completion (Purna), that is Completion (Purna). If this is removed from that, both remain, continue as Completion. When the Completion merges into Completion, Completion alone remains. If the Completion is removed or perceived to be removed from Completion, again Completion alone remains as Completion. Let there be peace in my inner space, peace in the outer space, peace in the Cosmos.
The Science of Completion can take anyone from where they are, beyond their thoughts, worries and agitations, to the space of Oneness with the Whole. It is the method by which someone can restore their original space of Oneness with everything. The Science of Completion is nothing but knowing and experiencing that anything that stands in the way of Oneness is an illusion, no matter how real or believable it may appear.
Hinduism offers various time tested, authentic techniques to ground an individual in the space of completion and oneness, such as but not limited to The Science of uncluthing, practicing ajapa-japa and initiation into the Mahavaakakya.
Therefore WHITE OM aims to train its religious peacekeepers in accumulating the right patterns and imbing the right answers to all basic fundamental questions radiating the WHITE OM further shoulders the responsibility of training all the religious peacekeepers to live, radiate and practice the Hindu techniques to establish themselves in the space of oneness.
