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.

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.
