Mental health matters. It was Dr. Brock Chisholm, the first Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), who said, “Without mental health there can be no true physical health.” Mental disorders, or psychological disorders, refer to a varied group of conditions that damage an individual’s emotions and cognition, cause severe personal distress, and disrupt daily functioning.
While there is no perfect definition of mental disorders, mental health professionals have come up with different classifications and diagnostic criteria. Rather than serving to label to a problem, a diagnosis facilitates proper treatment by helping to discover suitable solutions and other information related to the problem.
The common disorders faced by adults today can be categorized into:
Anxiety Disorders: Phobias, Panic Attacks, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Somatoform Disorder, Dissociative Disorders.
Mood Disorders: Depression, Bipolar Affective Disorder, Dysthymia, Cyclothymia.
Psychotic Disorders: Schizophrenia, Schizo-affective Disorders, Delusional Disorder
Organic Brain Disorders: Dementia
