Mental health remained a mystery throughout time. During the Middle Ages physicians would practice bloodletting for every disease imaginable. This cure-all rarely cured anything at all. France, England, and the USA attempted to create mental illness classification systems in the 19th and early 20th century to no avail. The idea never really caught on.

Most of the individual psychology theories such as the learning theory, cognitive, and biological theory are not sufficient in determining and explaining the origins of mental illness. The diathesis-stress model stipulates that in order to come down with a mental disorder, a person must have a biological predisposition for the disease, they must live in a bad environment and they must be experiencing stress because of that environment.
