Medications, therapy, patience, understanding, and love.
The only difference is that their illness makes life often harder to deal with. But with God, all things are possible, and most people who have some mental illness can lead useful lives with help from God, others, and medication.
It is known that drugs will bring out symptoms of emotional illness, or else drugs will magnify any current issues.
The problem is that drugs and alcohol make things more magnified in a negative way. Also, when a person diagnosed then uses alcohol or drugs while on their medication, this also amplifies any issues that they are dealing with in the first place.
