How can we know when a person is experiencing symptoms of a mental health problem?
The Mental Health Council, the national mental health charity, is launching a series of videos that will help people with mental health issues understand how their thoughts and feelings are contributing to their symptoms.
The Mental Harms Foundation, which is working with the charity to develop the videos, said it had been working with a range of organisations, including the Mental Health Commission and the Royal College of Psychiatrists, to identify people with symptoms of mental illness.
“What we’ve found is that people with severe mental health problems, those who are not getting their mental health services the same as other people, have a very different experience of mental health than the rest of the population,” Mental Harness Foundation chief executive, David Dyson, told the ABC.
“It’s not a question of what you think, it’s a question about how you think.”

But a new study from the University of Queensland, published in the Journal of Affective Disorders, found that when mental health professionals were asked about symptoms of major depression, they found people who were experiencing severe depression were more likely than those with mild to moderate depression to be experiencing symptoms.
“People who are having serious depression have more symptoms, but the severity of those symptoms is related to the severity and severity of their depression,” Dr Peter Fass, a clinical psychologist from the university’s School of Psychology, said.
“In fact, people who are suffering from a severe depression, with the symptoms of severe depression that are common, are significantly more likely of having severe depression.”
Dr Fass said that while it may be tempting to blame mental illness on someone, this can be difficult to do because many mental health disorders involve people reacting to a perceived threat, rather than experiencing the underlying problem themselves.
“The key here is to understand that we don’t have a clear picture of what’s going on with your mind.
So if you’re suffering from depression and you think it’s caused by your thoughts, you’re not necessarily right,” he said.
Dr Fis said there were several different ways to look at mental health, including thinking about symptoms, or how symptoms are impacting your life.
“We’re looking at what we call cognitive distortions or thoughts that cause problems in your life, for example.
These are thoughts that you may be harbouring about your life and about your feelings, or your thoughts that are causing you distress,” he explained.”
There are different kinds of thoughts, and they all lead to a feeling of distress or anxiety.”

Dr Fatt said he was concerned that the lack of information on mental health made it hard for people with a mental problem to be confident about getting the help they needed.
“That’s something we want people to understand.
It’s important for people to get the support that they need and we know that it’s not just about getting treatment.
We know that mental health is really important for your wellbeing,” he told the Radio National Breakfast.”
But when it comes to seeking mental health care, we don’s just want people who have symptoms to be able to get help and to feel confident about what they need to do.”
The Mental Hospitals NSW has launched a helpline that will be accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
