Mental Illness Does Not Discriminate
Occasional grief, stress, and sadness are normal. But when when patterns or changes in thinking, feeling or behaving causes distress or disrupt one's ability to function can suggest help is needed. A mental health condition can affect anyone regardless of age, income, race, or gender.
Mental illnesses include anxiety, bipolar disorder, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, eating disorders and many others. The two most common mental health illnesses are depression and anxiety, affecting millions of Americans. There is no single cause for mental illness—hereditary, environment, lifestyle, and life events can all play a role. *Click here for common signs and symptoms.
