Feelings of sadness, excessive fear or worry, dramatic shifts in mood.  These are just a few of the possible side effects of mental illness and they have the power to turn your life upside down.  Many people are affected by a mental illness.  According to the Centers for Disease Control, less than twenty percent of U.S. adults are considered to be in a state of optimal mental health.  By the year 2020, it's estimated that depression will be the second leading cause of disability throughout the world. 

On HealthSmart: Mental Illness learn about the symptoms and treatment.  Plus, listen as those who have struggled with mental illness share their journeys.
