Mental illness typically lasts longer than the aforementioned mental health problems as they cause a greater amount of distress and disruption to life. There are a number of common mental illnesses listed below. You can click on each one to be taken to further information about them.

There are no single known causes of mental health, rather they tend to come about as the result of a number of overlapping factors such as:-

  • Genetic inheritance from your parents
  • Experiences early in life such as abuse, neglect, or the loss of a close, loved one
  • Individual factors like self esteem, coping skills and thinking styles
  • What’s happening for you currently such as stress at school, money issues, relationship concerns, or family problems
