What is Mental Health?
Mental illness is a general term that refers to a group of illnesses affecting the mind in the same way physical illness affects the body. A mental illness is a clinically diagnosable illness that affects a person’s thinking, emotional state or social abilities. It may disrupt their ability to work, carry out daily activities or have satisfying personal relationships. Just as all people are different, so are the types of mental illness and their impact. Some people may require support for a short time, whereas others may need life-long help.

Giving a sense of hope and future
Most people with mental illness lead lives like anyone else, working and participating with family and friends. The most disabling aspect of mental illness for many is the way they are treated and excluded from those things the rest of the community take for granted.
