   Many people have mental health concerns from time to time. But a mental health concern becomes a mental illness when ongoing signs and symptoms cause frequent stress and affect your ability to function. A mental illness can make you miserable and can cause problems in your daily life, such as at school or work or in relationships. In most cases, symptoms can be managed with a combination of holistic care, talk therapy, and medications. Many mental health concerns are preventable, and even curable when addressed early. Regardless of your status, the Health Guardian should be the first step towards getting help.

   It is not possible to reliably tell whether someone is developing a mental health problem; however, if certain signs appear in a short space of time, it may offer clues. Sometimes symptoms of a mental health disorder appear as physical problems, such as stomach pain, back pain, headaches, or other unexplained aches and pains. If you have any mental concerns, talk with your Health Guardian. Most mental illnesses don't improve on their own, and if unaddressed, a mental illness may get worse over time and cause serious problems.

   There are various ways people with mental health issues might receive treatment. It is important to know that what works for one person may not work for another; this is especially the case with mental health. Some strategies or treatments are more successful when combined with others. A patient with a chronic mental disorder may choose different options at different stages in their life. The majority of experts say that a well-informed patient is probably the best judge of what treatment suits them best.
