Common mental health conditions
In recent years, society has become more aware of mental health concerns, particularly those affecting men. Everybody can suffer from mental health conditions, both male and female, and in fact roughly 30% of Australians will experience mental illness throughout their life. What’s also important to note is that men are at most risk of mental health-related suicide, yet they’re the least likely to seek help.
There are several mental health conditions, with the most common being:
• Psychotic disorders (such as schizophrenia)
• Eating disorders
• Substance abuse
• Mood disorders (such as bipolar)
• Personality disorders
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle no longer just means looking after your body. It also means looking after your mind and your mental well-being.
Symptoms of mental illness
Naturally, with so many different mental health conditions out there, the list of symptoms varies depending on the concern. However, there are a few common signs that your mental health is suffering, including:
• Trouble sleeping
• Weight loss or weight gain
• Ongoing feelings of sadness
• Withdrawing from social situations
• Rapid changes in mood
• Lack of energy
• Self-medicating with drugs or alcohol
• Engaging in risky behaviours
