A symptom is a problem reported by a patient.

 

The primary symptom of psychiatric illness is significant clinical distress, listed in almost every DSM-IV diagnosis.

 

A sign is something about a person's behavior or thinking that only a doctor would notice or could interpret.

 

The consequences of mental illness vary by condition and degree, but can include medication side effects, homelessness, disability, or suicide, just to mention a few.
