Mental disorders affect your mood, thinking and behavior. Many people have mental health concerns from time to time. But a mental health concern becomes a mental disorder when signs and symptoms affect your ability to function in day to day life, cause problems in your daily life, such as at work or in relationships, and make you miserable. In most cases, mental disorder can be managed with a combination of medications and counseling / psychotherapy.
Signs and symptoms of mental illness vary, but mostly affect emotions, thoughts and behaviors and can sometimes appear as physical problems.
