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.
