Psychological ill Health

Every year, about one in four people in the UK may experience some kind of mental health problem. Mixed anxiety and depression is the most common mental health disorder, although many cases are not severe enough to require specific treatment. Mental health problems include eating disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, addiction to drugs and alcohol, personality disorders, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

  • General Discussion on psychological ill health
    No further evidence is needed to show that 'mental illness' is not the name of a biological condition whose nature awaits to be elucidated, but is the name of a concept whose purpose is to obscure the obvious.

  • Eating disorders
    Eating disorders refer to a group of conditions defined by abnormal eating habits that may involve either insufficient or excessive food intake to the detriment of an individual's physical and mental health. Bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, and binge eating disorder are the most common specific forms. Though primarily thought of as affecting females (an estimated 5–10 million being affected in the U.K.), eating disorders affect males as well. An estimated 10 – 15% of people with eating disorders are males (Gorgan, 1999). (an estimated 1 million U.K. males being affected).
