Severe mental fatigue can be due to stress and anxiety. Do daily pranayam and meditation for 15 min daily morning. Eat fruits daily like apple and pomegranate. Have few almonds daily. You may also take homoeopathic treatment for the same.

Unfortunately some psychiatric disorders are chronic (continuous or long-term) in nature. Just like some physical conditions like diabetes (sugar) or some kind of arthritis (pain due to inflammation of joints) which can't be permanently cured but can be controlled or managed from getting worse and reducing the symptoms like pain, fever restricted mobility in case of arthritis and dizziness, deterioration of functions of other organs like kidneys, heart, eyes etc. In cases of diabetes by means of modern medicines, physiotherapy and life-style modifications. Likewise, it seems to me that you have been taking drugs for stabilizing your mood swings and other psychotic symptoms which appear to be chronic. You have to accept that you have got to live with these undesirable conditions at first which may give you an immense relaxation. On the other hand, you can improve your quality of life by making some lifestyle modifications such as working within your physical and mental capacities, going for a brisk walk everyday, attending yoga classes, expanding your social network and thereby increasing your emotional support system and more importantly making regular, periodical visit to your psychiatrist etc, don't lose hope. Certainly you can make your life for the better if you have the strong will to do.
