Treatment varies with the type of mental disorder but almost always involves psychiatric counselling. Sometimes medication may be prescribed as well.Mental illnesses are very common. In fact, they are more common than cancer, diabetes, or heart disease.
Mental illness is any disease or condition that influences the way a person thinks, feels, behaves, and/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.
