Mental illnesses are just that, illnesses that aren't derived from choice or character flaws. Individuals with depression, anxiety, substance use issues, etc., aren't able to "pull it together" and get over how they are feeling without treatment. Mental illnesses are highly treatable, especially if detected and diagnosed early.
