Throughout my research I have looked further into what makes a mental illness, how to "diagnose" it and some ways to help cope with the illness. For this round I will be looking not so much at solutions, but common outcomes that people who suffer in silence with these illnesses face. PTSD: There a long term effects for when PTSD goes untreated. Also if treated poorly there is a bigger risk that more mental illnesses will develop.

In this round I will be looking into what coping mechanisms are used in each country to deal with these mental illnesses.

In my research I will be focusing on some major reasons and causes for anxiety, depression, and stress between first and third world countries amongst teens.

In my first round of research I will look further into what each disorder is defined as so that I can have a better understanding of what classifies as that certain disease and how these...Read More...
