Mental Health FAQ

Mental illness has lots of names: depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, schizophrenia, ADHD (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder), OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), panic disorder, phobias, and more. These are brain-based, biological illnesses – and are just as real as any other illness like diabetes, cancer, or heart disease. And, like these other illnesses, they require professional health care to manage and recover.

Mental illness can strike at any age. You should be informed about your/your family member’s diagnosis, so that you can be an active participant in your own treatment.
