Depression and Mental Illness

Mental illnesses are serious medical conditions that affect an individual psychologically, physically, and socially. From major depression to anorexia nervosa, the wide range of known mental disorders can affect virtually any demographic and may surface during early childhood or as late as elder years. Thankfully, treatment for mental illness has never been more effective and far-reaching as it is today.
