Limitation of an area of mental functioning reflects the overall degree to which your mental disorder interferes with that area. Throughout May, NAMI and participants across the country are raising awareness for the importance of mental health.

Having a good mental health doesn’t necessarily mean that we are immune to every kind of emotional attachments or bad times. Phrases such as ‘good mental health’, ‘positive mental health’, ‘mental wellbeing’, ‘subjective wellbeing’ and even ‘happiness’ have been proposed by various people to emphasise that mental health is about wellness rather than illness.
Eating disorders can occur and can be life threatening because some teenagers eat to forget and become very unhealthy.

Youth mental health and suicide prevention services worldwide, including MHFA Australia, have expressed concerns about a recently released Netflix TV show, ‘13 Reasons Why’, especially the graphic nature of some of the scenes.
Social problems commonly associated with mental illness include poverty, unemployment or reduced productivity and homelessness. When we assess your residual functional capacity, we consider all of your impairment-related mental and physical limitations. Now the governments of most societies say it’s all part of mental disorder and every single life should be saved.
A child’s health issues have often been linked to their mother’s age at time of their birth. The program includes an eight hour interactive session that introduces participants to risk factors, warning signs of mental health problems, understanding of their impact, and overview of mental health treatments.
