Hi! Could anyone explain the difference between "mental" and "psychological'? I can't distinguish the difference between "mental illnesses" and "psycological illnesses". Are depression, anorexia, paranoia mental illnesses? I read in some articles that depression is a psycological illness however it can be related to mental illnesses as internal factors affected a person and caused depression. So I'm confused.
