There's no sure way to prevent mental illness. However, if you do have a mental illness, taking steps to control stress, to increase your resilience and to boost low self-esteem may help keep your symptoms under control. Follow these steps:

Stick to your treatment plan. Even if you're feeling better, resist any temptation to skip your medications. If you stop, symptoms may come back. You could also have withdrawal-like symptoms if you stop a medication too suddenly. Don't skip therapy sessions, even if you don't feel like going. If you have bothersome medication side effects or other problems with your treatment, talk to your doctor before making changes.
Pay attention to warning signs. Work with your doctor or therapist to learn what might trigger your symptoms. Make a plan so that you know what to do if symptoms return. Contact your doctor or therapist if you notice any changes in symptoms or how you feel. Consider involving family members or friends in watching for warning signs.
Get routine medical care. Don't neglect checkups or skip visits to your family doctor, especially if you aren't feeling good. You may have a new health problem that needs to be treated, or you may be experiencing side effects of medication.
Get help when you need it. Mental health conditions can be harder to treat if you wait until symptoms get bad. Long-term maintenance treatment also may help prevent a relapse of symptoms.
Take care of yourself. Getting enough sleep, eating regular, healthy meals and exercising regularly can all help with mental illness.
