Background – What are mental health disorders?

Mental health disorders are conditions affecting your mood, thinking and behavior. Mental illness includes depression, anxiety disorders and schizophrenia. People have mental health issues from time to time. A mental health problem can become a mental illness if you have persistent symptoms that cause stress and interfere with your ability to function. An illness that causes mental distress can make it difficult to live a normal life. Most cases can be treated with medication and psychotherapy (talk therapy). Depending on the condition, circumstance, and other factors, signs and symptoms of mental illness may vary. Emotions, thoughts and behavior can be affected by mental illness. Some examples of symptoms and signs include:

  1. – Feeling sad
  2. - Reduced ability to focus or confused thinking
  3. - Extreme guilt or excessive fears and worries
  4. - Extreme mood swings of lows and highs
  5. - Retire from friends and other activities
  6. - Low energy, significant tiredness or trouble sleeping
  7. - Paranoia, hallucinations and detachment from reality
  8. - Inability to deal with everyday problems or stress
  9. - Problems understanding and relating with people and situations
  10. Problems with alcohol and drug abuse
  11. - Major changes in our eating habits
  12. - Suicidal thoughts Sometimes, symptoms of a mental disorder manifest as physical symptoms, such as stomach pain, back problems, or other unexplained aches, pains and discomforts.
