What factors in our daily lives affects the rates of mental disorders in humans?
There are many factors in our daily lives that can affect our mental health. Factors may vary from genetics/herediary, stress level, difficult changes in our lives, trauma, and biological factors.
Lets start with genetic and hereditary topics. There are many types of mental illness that occurs in families. An example of genetic mental disorder would be a parent passing a gene with a chance of a mental disorder to their offspring. Some experts believe that mental illness is caused by disorders within multiple genes.
Next, there are biological factors that may affect someone's mental health. As we already know, everyone's body is different. Studies have shown that someone who is suffering from mental illness have an abnormal balance of brain chemicals called neurotransmitters.
Then there is trauma. Trauma may be psychological or physical trauma. For example, if someone got in an accident, there may be a chance of a mental disorder. However, if someone has suffered through a divorce or a loss, they may develop mental disorders due to psychological trauma.
Finally, there is environmental stress. Environmental stress is similar to psychological trauma. These may vary from physical abuse to changes in your life such as schools, or jobs. For example, when comparing two people, one with a pretty view in the backyard versus an unpleasant backyard, the one with the unpleasant backyard may have a higher chance of developing a mental disorder.
