This term refers to a state of being in which a person has difficulty handling daily situations and feelings. It is not unusual for conditions to be characterized by impairment of intellectual functions, the experience of shallow and unstable emotions, and difficulty in adapting to one’s environment. Some definitions actually refer to mental illness as a “disease of the brain” or “sickness of the brain”.
