  *Mental Health*

Modern research has confirmed that brain is the seat of all mental processes and that mental illnesses are actually complex disorders of the brain. The hallmarks of mental illness are changes in thinking and behavior, which interfere with the normal life of the person and family members. Any person showing inappropriate or disproportionate emotional and behavioral responses could also have mental illness.

Mental illnesses are just like other physical illnesses- they all have a recognizable set of symptoms, are caused by actual chemical changes in the brain and can be affected by external factors (like high calories can worsen diabetes, high stress can worsen mental illness). Mental illness is caused by a combination of genetic, environmental and personal factors. It can affect anyone irrespective of caste, economic status or religion. It has nothing to do with mental weakness, immaturity, sins, misdeeds or black magic
