When we think of mental health disorders, well-known conditions like depression, bipolar disorder (manic-depression) and schizophrenia may immediately come to mind.
While these are common examples of mental illnesses, the spectrum of conditions is vast and can be at the root of other co-occurring disorders such as substance abuse.
Unfortunately, many people may not seek the treatment they need because they misunderstand the illness or fear discrimination.
If you or someone you know exhibits some of the following symptoms, they may benefit from mental health treatment —
Common symptoms of mental health disorders:
- Prolonged sadness or unexplained crying.
