What Causes Mental Illness?

Although the question of what causes mental illness cannot be precisely answered, doctors have been able to gather a better understanding of the different traits which contribute to the increase of personality and psychotic disorders. A popular key indicator to mental illness includes inherited genetics. Many mental illnesses are actively present in families which implies that it might be passed on.

Biology: An unbalanced level of neurotransmitters (brain chemicals) is also believed to be a contributor to mental illness. Neurotransmitters are a large contributing factor for the normal functionality of the human body as these transmitters teach cells and nerves how to communicate with each other. If you’re neurotransmitters are out of balance, messages sent to the brain may not be received correctly.

Psychological Trauma: Mental illnesses have also been linked to psychological trauma, where a person experiences a traumatizing event as a child which effects their adulthood. An example of a psychological traumatic event could be an event such as losing a parent at a young age, physical or other forms of abuse, or childhood neglect.

Environmental Stressors: Lastly, another probable key influence in mental illness would be environmental stressors. Examples of environmental stressors include though are not limited to, death or divorce, the change in careers, changing schools, dysfunctional family life as a child, or abuse of controlled substances.
