What is mental illness?

In the past, the subject of mental illness was surrounded with mystery and fear. Today, we have made tremendous progress in our understanding and, especially, in our ability to offer effective treatments. However, questions about mental illness often go unanswered and fear of the illness still stands in the way of receiving help.

Research is constantly providing us with new information about the brain and the nature of mental illnesses and, consequently, more effective treatments.
