Mental Illnesses are some of the most misunderstood illnesses that people can be affected by. Many don't understand the severity of these types of illnesses and can be uncompassionate about the incapacitating affects they can cause to the suffers.
Mental Illnesses not only take their toll on those who have to endure them but they also deeply affect the loved ones of those who are ill. Dealing with someone suffering from a mental illness is not easy. Sometimes the person you once knew seems to totally disappear underneath the effects of the illness and other times they require full time care in order to continue to function in daily life.
Yet, don't despair and give up hope. Many forms of mental illnesses can easily be diagnosed and controlled and the sufferer can go on to have a perfectly normal and functional life full of good mental health.
