Mental illness encompasses a wide range of mental health conditions. These disorders affect an individual’s mood, thinking and their behavior. Examples include anxiety, depression, addictions, schizophrenia, eating disorders etc.
When individuals have a mental illness it can directly affect their daily lives. It can affect their mood, their ability to perform tasks and a wide variety of other tasks can be affected. Some mental health conditions can be controlled through medication and others through therapy. Most commonly mental illnesses are managed with both a medication and therapy as a combination.
Mental illness is a serious issue that affects more Canadians than you might think, in a variety of ways. Most people are unaware that one in five Canadians will suffer from mental illness over the course of their lifetime.
