Mental Health

‘There is no health without mental health.’

(World Health Organization)

Life is full situations that influence our moods, thoughts, and behaviours.  While it’s normal to feel sad, nervous, or angry, when these feelings start to interfere with daily life and linger over weeks or months it could be a mental health problem.

There are five main types of mental health problems:

  1. Mood disorders (e.g., Depression)
  2. Anxiety disorders (e.g., Panic Disorder)
  3. Eating disorders (e.g., Anorexia Nervosa)
  4. Psychotic disorders (e.g., Schizophrenia)
  5. Substance-related disorders
