Mental health symptoms can affect anyone at any time, and they can range from mild to severe. Symptoms can also vary from sadness and crying spells to anxiety and sleep disturbance, and more. Both children and adults can suffer from mental health conditions. Mental health diagnoses are based on mental health symptoms. Examples of common mental health diagnoses include major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, and more. Recent surveys show that nearly 30 percent of people in Michigan have been reporting significant depression or anxiety, according to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and many more have experienced mental health symptoms in their life.
