Mental health is a broad term that can refer to cognitive, behavioral, emotional, psychological, and/or social well-being.[1][2][3] Mental illness refers to a psychiatric illness, for example depression, anxiety or anorexia nervosa.

ME/CFS[edit | edit source]

Brown et al (2010) found that patients with chronic fatigue syndrome who had both a mental illness before CFS and a current mental illness had greater pain, great sleep dysfunction, and more physical symptoms compared to patients with CFS who did not have a mental illness, or patients whose mental illness only began after they became ill with chronic fatigue syndrome.[4] Level of fatigue was not significantly associated with past or current psychiatric illness, and even chronic fatigue syndrome patients with no psychiatric history had severe disability.[4]
