Mental illness is a medical condition that often results in the lack of ability to cope with the ordinary, everyday demands of life. With God’s help and treatment, it can be controlled, and symptoms can be reversed, and a person can defeat these problems.
There Are Many Types of Diagnoses
These include major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and borderline personality disorder. The good news about is that recovery and a relatively healthy life is possible.
Like any problem that is not dealt with, mental illness can become worse without being addressed properly. There should be no stigma or shame connected with seeing a doctor for help. The real shame is not taking care of the illness and allowing it to get worse. With God, medication, treatment a person can get to the point of living a productive, normal healthy life.

With God, There is Help For Mental Illness!
Mental Illness Has Become More And More Treatable!
Medications, therapy, patience, understanding, and love.
God loves people that have problems no less than he loves others. The only difference is that their disease makes life sometimes 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.
When a person with many of these types of problems uses alcohol or drugs, but the problem is that that the 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 magnifies any issues that they are dealing with in the first place.
