People spend far more time addressing their physical health than their mental health. We know that mental illness is more common than cancer, lung disease and heart disease combined. An untreated mental illness can complicate many minor and serious physical disorders. Mental illness is not a weakness or personality flaw. Anyone can be affected by mental illness, regardless of age, gender, race or status. When you or a family member needs help with a difficult emotional issue, Mountain Lakes Behavioral Healthcare is the answer.
