Is a disorder that affects and interferes with a person’s emotional, cognitive and social wellbeing. It is usually diagnosed by a medical professional, occurring in different degrees of severity and is usually a long standing condition.
On the other hand, occurs as a result of pressures from life’s stressors and equally affects an individual’s social, cognitive and emotional abilities. They occur over a shorter duration and may be less severe. If a mental health problem however, does persist and become more severe, it can be classified as a mental illness.
