  1. We do not do your work for you. I searched Google under the key words "mental illness definition" to get these possible sources:

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&client=safari&rls=en&defl=en&q=define:mental+illness&ei=VT2ASt7rEYXCNbbJ-d0C&sa=X&oi=glossary_definition&ct=title
    (Broken Link Removed)

    For your other questions, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
