What Is Mental Illness? – Mental illnesses are health conditions involving changes in emotion, thinking or behavior (or a combination of these). Mental-illnesses can be associated with distress and/or problems functioning in social, work or family activities.
What Is Mental Illness?
Mental illness, also called mental health disorders, refers to a wide range of mental health conditions — disorders that affect your mood, thinking and behavior. Examples of mental-illness include depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, eating disorders and addictive behaviors. Many people have mental health concerns from time to time. But a mental health concern becomes a mental-illness when ongoing signs and symptoms cause frequent stress and affect your ability to function.
A mental-illness can make you miserable and can cause problems in your daily life, such as at school or work or in relationships. In most cases, symptoms can be managed with a combination of medications and talk therapy (psychotherapy). If you have any signs or symptoms of a mental-illness, see your primary care provider or a mental health professional. Most mental-illnesses don’t improve on their own, and if untreated, a mental-illness may get worse over time and cause serious problems.
