Mental health describes a person's psychological or emotional well-being. The transition from health to illness is often gradual. Mental diseases are common and they may occur once, recur, or persist. A person's lifestyle and genes heavily influence the disease onset and course of the disease. Since there are a large number of treatment options today, early diagnosis is crucial.
