A “mental illness” isn’t a disease like a medical illness; it’s simply a description of symptoms. A diagnosis of “Clinical Depression” or “Anxiety Disorder” is analogous to a diagnosis of “chest pain” or “headache.” Chest pain and headache are symptoms, not diseases. To identify a disease you need knowledge of underlying mechanisms, however, these are absent in psychological / psychiatric diagnosis.
