Mental 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. If you, or someone you know, has a mental illness, there is good news: all mental illnesses can be treated.

There are lots of online resources to help everyone learn about mental illnesses – which can also be called psychiatric disorders – and their treatment.
