Mental health illness

These are health problems involving changes in thinking, emotion as well behavior. Normally mental illness is associated with distress or in other cases, problems functioning in social works (De Silva et., al 2005). According to World Health Organization;

· Approximately one in five adults in the united states experience some mental disorder,

· Further, one in 24 has a critical mental disorder

· And on in 12 has a substance use disorder. www.who.int/mental_health/management/en/

Nevertheless, mental disorder is treatable and majority of people with mental disorders continue to function in their daily lives.
