Mental Illness

Break Free From Your Mental Illness

Mental Illness is something that many people struggle with on a day to day basis. There are many different types of mental illnesses from depression, anxiety to more severe disorders such as schizophrenia. When diagnosing a mental illness, it’s important to seek professional help from a psychologist to help address the best course of action for treatment.

It’s important to remember that sometimes people with certain psychotic disorders (such as schizophrenia) may also have problems in parts of the brain that control their thinking, motivation, and perception. But not all people with a mental illness will experience this severity of mental thinking. Most experts say that two of the main symptoms of psychosis are hallucinations and delusions.

  • Delusions are defined as false beliefs, such as thinking that someone is “out to get you,” that the television is sending secret messages, or that someone is spying on you.
  • Hallucinations, on the other hand, are false perceptions, or hearing and seeing things that are not “there.”

Other more common mental illnesses don’t necessarily show up with these severe symptoms.

Treating psychosis depends on the perceived cause of the illness. Sometimes you may need to use drugs to control the symptoms, while sometimes psychotherapy also works.

If you think you, a relative, or a loved one may have symptoms of psychosis or another mental illness, always remember that treatment is possible. It’s not too late to find a way to cope with your condition provided you seek help as soon as you think the symptoms are having a negative impact on your life.
