Mental Health Fact list

"Mental health challenges can be difficult to define, diagnose, and address, partly because it isn’t always clear when an issue is serious enough to warrant intervention. All of us, at all ages, occasionally experience fear, worry, sadness, or distress. In most cases, these symptoms are short-lived and don’t affect our ability to function. But, at other times, symptoms can cause serious difficulties with daily functioning and affect our relationships with others, as in the case of conditions such as anxiety disorders, major depressive disorder, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and eating disorders, among others." (Protecting Youth Mental Health: The U.S. Surgeon General's Advisory)
