What does it mean to have a mental illness?
> Mental illnesses are health conditions that disrupt a person’s thoughts, emotions, relationships, and daily functioning. They are associated with distress and a person’s inability to engage in the ordinary activities of daily life. Mental illnesses fall along a continuum of severity: some are fairly mild and only interfere with some aspects of life, such as certain adjustment disorders. On the other end of the spectrum lie serious and persistent mental illnesses, which result in major functional impairment and interference with daily life. These include such disorders as major depression, schizophrenia, and bipolar disorder, and may require that the person receives care in a hospital. It is important to know that mental illnesses are medical conditions that have nothing to do with a person’s character, intelligence, or willpower. Just as diabetes is a disorder of the pancreas, mental illness is a medical condition due to the brain’s biology.
What is therapy?
> Therapy can also be called psychotherapy or counseling. Therapists help people address feelings, resolve relationship issues or deal with trauma they have experienced in their lives. For many, therapy is an important step towards being the healthiest version of yourself. And regardless of the challenges you face, therapy can help you reach your goals for well-being.
What are the different types of therapy and mental health services you offer?

How do I get a loved one to attend therapy?
> It is challenging when someone you care about is not receiving the mental health support he or she needs. Overall, it is very important to show your care and concern. Express that you will support this person through the process of therapy and be prepared to help them in whatever ways you can to access what supports are needed.

If you notice changes in your child’s behavior, this could mean that your child is in need of help.
