Summary

You're about to discover how to maintain healthier mental health.

Millions of Americans live with various types of mental illness and mental health problems. Mental illness 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 work or in relationships. In most cases symptoms can be managed with a combination of medications and counseling (psychotherapy).

Mental illness is any disease or condition that influences the way a person thinks, feel, behaves, or relates to others and to his or her surroundings. Although the symptoms of mental illness can range from mild to severe and are different depending on the type of mental illness, a person with an untreated mental illness often is unable to cope with life's daily routines and demands.
