Mental Health

Your mental health is just as important as your physical health, and in fact, physical symptoms can result from a mental illness.

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, "mental illnesses are defined as medical conditions that disrupt a person's thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning. Just as diabetes is a disorder of the pancreas, mental illnesses are medical conditions that often result in a diminished capacity for coping with the ordinary demands of life."

The good news about mental illness is that recovery is possible.
