What is mental health disorder?
A mental health disorder is a medical problem that affects the way we think, how we feel, or our behavior. In most cases, it affects all three.
Despite how it is perceived, a mental health disorder is nothing to be ashamed of and can affect anyone at any point.
There are more than 300 mental health disorders listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, a handbook used by health professionals to help identify and diagnose mental health illnesses. The most common types of mental health disorders include anxiety, mood disorders such as depression or bipolar disorder, psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia, personality disorders, eating disorders such as anorexia or bulimia, and impulse control and addiction disorders.
What are signs and symptoms of mental health condition?
Signs and symptoms of mental health conditions vary. Each condition presents itself in different patterns and is best left to professionals to diagnose. However, there are some noticeable traits that may help determine if your loved one is exhibiting any of the following signs:
