There are a few common misconceptions about mental health problems that may have already delayed you seeking help. Perhaps you’ve held off because you are worried about stigma and being stuck with a label. Maybe it’s because others have told you that mental illness is incurable and lifelong. Well, none of the above has to be true. In fact most mental health problems are transient and easy to treat especially if you get help as soon as possible. And with the right care, future episodes can be prevented.
