Factors that could affect an Individual’s Mental Health. There are several factors that may cause a person to develop a mental disorder. One of these is genetic inheritance and family history. Life experiences such as stress or trauma as well as substance abuse could also destabilize an individual’s mental health.
Mental illness is at the very least complex. There is still much to be studied and observed. That is why funding for such projects needs to be obtained to advance moving forward in research. The current climate is moving toward defunding research and that will put research to a halt and services to be threaten in providing care.
