Mental Health

A mental disorder or mental illness is a diagnosable illness that affects a person's thinking, emotional state, and behavior and disrupts the person's ability to work or carry out other daily activities and engage in satisfying personal relationships. 

A mental health problem is a broader term that includes both mental disorders and symptoms of mental disorders that may not be severe enough to warrant the diagnosis of a mental disorder.

Mental disorders are common in the United States. There are many different types of mental illnesses. Mental disorders can be treated and recovery is possible.
