Mental Health, including Mental Illnesses and Mental Disorders, is a health issue that is not given enough attention. It is estimated that nearly two-thirds of all people with diagnosable mental disorders do not seek treatment. This lack of treatment by persons affected is strongly associated with the negative social stereotyping of persons diagnosed with mental illnesses. Mental Disorders and Illnesses are much like any other physical disability and are not related to a persons moral failings or lack of will power.

 

Mental Disorders discussed in the below articles include, but are not limited to, the following topics: Agoraphobia, Alcohol Dependence, Alzheimers, Anorexia Nervosa, Asperger's Disorder, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism, Bipolar Disorder, Bulimia Nervosa, Dementia, Depression (Major Depressive Disorder), Nicotine Dependence, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Panic Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Schizophrenia and Social Phobia.
