A nervous or mental breakdown is a term used to describe a period of intense mental distress. During this period, you’re unable to function in your everyday life. This term was once used to refer to a wide variety of mental illnesses, including depression, anxiety, and acute stress disorder.


How does it feel like to have a mental breakdown?

Depending on who you are, it can affect you in different ways. According to Psychology today, mental breaks is”just a chance to take a mental and emotional break from the world around us.”

In a way, the body starts to produce messages to send to the brain. These messengers are called Neurotransmitters. They produce the signals that send messages to the brain for it to correct its functions. Which allows it to “boost, and balance signals between neurons, or nerve cells, and other cells in the body.” These chemical messengers can affect a wide variety of both physical and psychological functions including heart rate, sleep, appetite, mood, and fear.


Compare to that of the high levels of stress, smoking, drinking, etc. The body its self, needs to create a balance for it to be able to function properly. Studies have shown, that once that is challenged, it can affect our brain & the signals it needs to function.

Question: Does mental issues affect our lives?

Answer: Yes.

Unlike physical health, one can feel the pain when it hits. Mental health issues, one might not be able to feel it externally… it is an internal pain, we don’t address much. We should open honest dialogues.

You do not need science to provide you with evidence as to why your health should be your number one priority. Any decision that you make is based on “self”, and the only person explanation to is God.- Solange Knowles
