Adversity refers to facing challenging or difficult circumstances. While not a medical condition per se, it can significantly impact an individual's mental and physical health. Prolonged adversity and chronic stress may contribute to the development or exacerbation of mental health disorders, cardiovascular issues, and other health problems. Building resilience, seeking support, and developing coping strategies are essential in navigating through challenging times.
