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.
