Mental health problems

Research indicates that about 1 in 4 of us will experience some sort of mental health problem at some point in our lives. We cannot predict who they will be and we cannot identify a single cause, but instead it appears that a combination of biochemical, psychological, environmental, and even genetic factors may all play a role in causing a mental health problem.

The most common types of mental health problems are anxiety-related disorders and depression. Many very mild cases of anxiety and depression can be alleviated or even eliminated by learning some simple self-help techniques, and sometimes it can be a matter of some simple lifestyle adjustments. If you’re feeling a little stressed, a little depressed, or a little anxious, here are some things you can try to see if they make a difference.

Self-help techniques
