What is Mental Illness?

It is difficult for me to actually define mental illness so I have found some reputable links to share.

One of the links is from the National Alliance on Mental Illness.  The second site is from the Mayo Clinic.  The last site I have given is from the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance.

I have used these 3 sites quite a bit to learn more about mental illness.  I didn’t know that much about this subject when I was first diagnosed so I have had to research and learn and am still learning.  Mental illnesses are complex and no two people are the same which can make things difficult and confusing.

I will be defining different mental illness terms in my next post.

Remember, It does get better.
