In brief: Usually yes

It depends to some degree on the type of mental disorder, but i believe meditation can be helpful to virtually everyone.
Herbal medicines have been proven effective in treating anxiety and depression, as well as helping attention deficit disorder and improving memory and concentration. Vitamins, minerals, Amino Acids & healthy oils also help. It is best to work with a knowledgeable practitioner.
