Mental illnesses (also called mentals) are diseases that are usually hard to get rid of and give you Fun effects.
The most common causes are wearing fucky headgear, being a hungry Vampire, using Carrie or recloning as a Freak/Abomination.
There are only three cures for most: A good doctor, an Empath or death. Mentals become much harder to cure the longer someone is affected by them.

How to deal with the screaming purple bears in your head

Depending on how far the mental has progressed, it could be simple to remove, or a giant nightmare to do so. At the higher intensities, psychoanalyzing mental illnesses are the hardest medic skill checks available.
It helps if you are reclining on a comfortable piece of furniture when being psychoanalyzed. If you have enigma, you are so mysterious you can't even share your own inner mental workings, so you must rely on the rare Empath to help, they may be able to absorb your mentals for a fee.
If you need help, just politely ask on tradenet and someone would most likely be willing to assist, if not, maybe try to just enjoy the interesting perspective a mental illness gives you, sometimes they have some really neat effects.

How does therapy werk

From the moment that you contract a manstal, it will continuously increase the amount of 'doses' you have. Think of it like the hunger meter.
Receiving psycho anal reduces the doses you have until they reach zero - then you'll finally be cured.
Some mentals like paranoia, nyphomania and christianity are easy to cure even at full progression. The really fun stuff like damnation though? Either get it analyzed immediately or prepare to reclone.
