Mental Health Problems

Mental health problems range from the worries we all experience as part of everyday life to serious long-term conditions. Mental illness, also called mental health disorders, refers to a wide range of mental health conditions — disorders that affect your mood, thinking and behaviour. 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). Types of mental health problems include; depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, stress, self-harm, eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder etc.
