Mental Illness Can make the Brain Fall Sick Too

The webinar was held to discuss measures on spreading awareness of mental wellness amongst millennials

The human brain, just like any other organ, can also fall sick and have a problem too which could lead to mental illness, say experts.

However, we at times, don’t accept it, but it is a fact that any challenge related to the brain relates to mental illness and can lead to schizophrenia, bi-polar, acute anxiety and chronic depression, which are major mental illnesses and need psychiatrist’s help and medicines, said Nivedita Singh, a psychologist, an author and the founder of Co-Create Change, while addressing a webinar ‘Is your mind happy’.
