Unfortunately, taking into consideration the world we live in, many people experience a nervous breakdown at least once in their lives. Once this happens, people are advised to seek professional help through psychotherapy, counseling or other means of support and mental rehabilitation. Even though a nervous breakdown rarely affects one physically, there are cases where a person's health is jeopardized regarding this aspect of it as well.
