Mental illness does not discriminate, although poverty, lack of education, genetic factors and substance abuse can complicate the issue.

Some conditions will come on during a difficult time in your life, while others are more chronic and may last throughout your life. Regardless of what you are struggling with, seeking help is vital to staying healthy, both physically and mentally.
