How Can Mental Illness Problems Start?

Mental illness can start from a number of reasons, events or factors in your life. These include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Genetics with a family history of mental illness that runs in the family across generations.
  • An imbalance of chemicals in the brain that causes an inability to cope with stress.
  • Long term uses of alcohol and drugs that have shutdown parts of the brain.
  • PTSD from continuous stress or experiencing a life changing event.
  • Witnessing a death or something horrific that has left emotional scars that aren’t healed.

You don’t have to be ruled by mental health. You can overcome your problem by speaking to a Life Resolutions psychologist in Caulfield. Let us help you through this difficult time.
