Mental Health Illnesses

Mental Health illnesses are disorders that can affect a person’s personality, through processes or social interactions. There are over 200 types of disorders, all of which have overlapping symptoms, making them difficult to diagnose. Although most disorders are treatable with therapy and medication, getting access to treatment can be difficult for the average Canadian. Either treatment will not be covered by their insurance provider or they will have to wait extended amounts of time for access to care. Some common mental health disorders include Anxiety Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, Depression and Schizophrenia. There are many factors that could play into the cause of mental disorders, including biological, psychological, and environmental variants. Although all symptoms are psychological, some disorders can indirectly cause physical symptoms as well. For example, depression can cause weight loss, fatigue, and loss of libido, while eating disorders can cause malnutrition. The symptoms for disorders can range in type and severity, and 5% of individuals suffer from symptoms severe enough to affect aspects of daily life. Only a medical professional can properly diagnose a mental health disorder. Once diagnosed, treatment can include therapy and medication, to help ease the symptoms or teach individuals how to control their symptoms. Share Lawyers understand that living with a mental health disorder can be debilitating and we make it our focus to offer the compassion and legal advice needed to assist with finding help. When you are suffering through symptoms, you are not at your best and that is where we provide the advice needed to navigate your way to an effective claim.
