A Bit About Mental Illness

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, “mental illnesses are medical conditions that disrupt a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning.” Mental health disorders do not develop because someone is weak. Mental health disorders do not discriminate; anyone can develop a mental health disorder at any time.

Many of these illnesses can occur in episodes. This means there are times when symptoms are there and times when symptoms seem to lessen and almost disappear. Mental illness symptoms usually worsen if left untreated.


Recovery from mental health disorders involves understanding the condition, learning new skills and developing a new way of life.
