At various points in life, most people experience some form of mental or emotional difficulty; it is a very common human experience. Mental illness could be the result of many factors: stress, lifestyle, relationship, family issues, work, abuse, trauma; to name just a few. While most people’s issues can be generalised into groups such as relationship problems or workplace stress, it’s important to recognise that every individual has a unique set of contributing causes. One person may have a complex combination of issues, while another may be struggling to identify any reason for the way they feel. It is because of these unique qualities that mental health cannot be addressed the same way as physical illness.
