<p>Mental illness is a psychological pattern that occurs in an individual
and it causes distress and disability. This medical condition disturbs a
person’s thinking, daily doings, feeling and ability to maintain with
others. Serious mental illnesses include major depression, schizophrenia,
bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and panic
disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and borderline personality
disorder. The most important thing is that it can be recovered. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Medical illnesses can take many forms, just as physical illnesses do.
Mental illnesses are still feared and misunderstood by many people, but
the fear will disappear as people learn more about them. To get the
proper information you must get the following information.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Mental illness is very common. One from every four people in Britain
is caused by mental illness. Mental illnesses are some of the least
understood conditions in society. As a result of this condition, many
people face prejudice and discrimination in their everyday lives.
However, most people can lead productive and fulfilling lives with
appropriate treatment and support. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>For some people, drugs and other medical treatments are helpful, but
for others they are not. Medical treatment may only be a part of what
helps recovery, and not necessarily the main part. It is not a fault of
someone rather this is not a sign of weakness, and it's not something to
be ashamed of.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Persons suffering from any of the severe mental disorders present with
a variety of symptoms that may include inappropriate anxiety,
disturbances of thought and perception, deregulation of mood, and
cognitive dysfunction. Most of these symptoms may be relatively specific
to a particular diagnosis or cultural influence. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>For example, disturbances of thought and perception are most commonly
associated with schizophrenia. Similarly, severe disturbances in
expression of affect and regulation of mood are most commonly seen in
depression and in bipolar disorder. However, it is not uncommon to see
psychotic symptoms in patients diagnosed with mood disorders or to see
mood-related symptoms in patients diagnosed with schizophrenia. Symptoms
associated with mood, anxiety, thought process, or cognition may occur in
any patient at some point during his or her illness.</p>
