Mental Illness

List of Mental Illnesses

NB: This list may not contain all mental disorders

Among the most common mental illnesses that can potentially increase the risk of suicide are:


Although these are some of the more common, there are many other mental illnesses that might increase the risk of suicide. It is important to know however, that proper diagnosis and treatment of mental illnesses can significantly increase a person’s quality of life and drastically help with reducing the suicide risk.

BIPOLAR DISORDER

DEPRESSION

SCHIZOPHRENIA

DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE

BULIMIA

ANOREXIA

There is a stigma sometimes associated with the terms ‘mental illness’ and ‘mental disorder’ that causes some people to equate the fairly common condition to that of being ‘crazy’. The truth of the matter is that there are many conditions housed under those umbrella terms that would surprise even some of the people who do unknowingly suffer from a mental illness.


Although some argue that there is a difference between the terms ‘mental illness’ and ‘mental disorder’, they are generally used interchangeably. A mental illness can be loosely defined as a condition that interrupts a person's mood, affects their feelings, disrupts their regular thought patterns and disrupts how they function.

It has been noted that about 90 percent of people who committed suicide had some form of mental illness. The term ‘mental illness’ encompasses a broad range of fairly common problems including: Alcohol Abuse, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Anxiety, Depressive Disorder (Depression), Anorexia and dozens of others. Although the vast majority of people who commit suicide had some type of mental illness, the reverse is untrue - Most people suffering from a mental illness do not commit suicide. In many situations, a person with a mental illness can recover and be just as normal as any other member of society. Even the more severe mental illnesses can be treated, and doing so can drastically aid with the person’s assimilation into regular life. The fact remains, professional treatment is essential to the recovery process of someone suffering from a severe mental illness.
