How Do Mental Illness Problems Start?

There’s many factors, events, and reasons why mental illness may become a problem. Some of these reasons include:

  • Experiencing an event which was life-changing such as death.
  • Ongoing drug or alcohol abuse that has affected the brain.
  • A genetic history of problems with mental health that’s been passed across generations.
  • Problems with the brain chemicals not firing properly causing an inability to cope with stress.
  • PTSD which has caused continuous stress across the years.
