One out of every five Australians will experience some form of mental illness each year.
A mental illness is a health condition that changes a person's thinking, feelings, or behaviour (or all three) and that causes the person distress and difficulty in functioning. As with many diseases, mental illness affects people differently, some people may show no signs while others may show more explicit
symptoms such as confusion, agitation, or withdrawal.
There are many different mental illnesses, including depression, schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Each illness alters a person's thoughts, feelings, and/or behaviours in distinct ways.
