Hikikomori, a Japanese word which means pulling inward or withdraw. This mental disorder affect about 700,000 to 1.2 million people in Japan,which causes them to shut
in for as little as three months to 15 to 20 years or more. It is also visible in people in two other governments,Italy and South Korea,but appear more in numbers in Japan. Now,don't think that this is some strange phenomenon that is unheard of and only
appear in a few countries. We know of this disorder,maybe not by this name Hikikomori,but the combination of this symptoms we in the professional helpers field see it everywhere and everyday. No one chooses where they are born,and where we are born there are
societal standards and pressures. Some cope and fit in and other withdraws. This wrtting is 50% owned by The University Of Tokyo Foundation,and all writings that is related to the Hikikomori Campaign, A Campaign To Live.
