Mental Disorders
By Jennifer Kenny
  

1     Do you know any individuals who suffer from a mental disorder? Perhaps you don't think so, but you may change your mind after you've read some descriptions of the disorders. You already know that a mentally healthy individual has good self-esteem, healthy relationships with others, and can deal with day-to-day struggles.
 
2     Those who suffer from mental disorders suffer from an illness. That illness affects the individual's thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Some may have low self-esteem. Some may have trouble with their relationships. Some feel sad on a day-to-day basis.
 
3     Many people don't get help because they don't understand what mental disorders are. It is important that people notice symptoms or changes caused by these diseases. Some of the symptoms that deserve discussion with a doctor are too much sleep, too little sleep, extreme sadness, mood changes, drug abuse, alcohol abuse, extreme anxiety, and inability to concentrate. There are many mental disorders. Depression, ADHD, and anxiety are examples of common mental disorders.
