Mental illness, an often isolating illness, affects one in four people. It affects persons of any age, race religion or socioeconomic status. It affects the entire family. Mental illnesses are biological brain disorders and can disrupt a person’s thinking, feelings, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning. Mental illnesses are treatable medical conditions. Thanks to research and medical advances in medications and treatment, recovery is possible. Many people feel isolated by mental illness due to the stigma and misinformation surrounding it. If your life has been touched by mental illness, you are not alone.
