There are hundreds of known mental illnesses that can change how you feel, think, and act. Some of these mental illnesses are sporadic, others are long-lasting, some are brought on by trauma or experiences, and others are caused by genetics or biology. They can all have an effect on a person’s social and personal functioning.
Panic disorder and phobias are two examples of common mental illnesses that fall under the umbrella of anxiety disorders. People with anxiety disorders react to certain situations with fear and dread.
Depression and bipolar disorder are two examples of mood disorders that frequently involve extreme swings between extremes of sadness or happiness.
The two most typical signs of a psychotic disorder, such as schizophrenia, are hallucinations and delusions. Hallucinations—hearing or seeing things that are not real, such as voices. Delusions—believing things that are not true.
People with personality disorders exhibit extreme behaviors that can be distressing and problematic in their lives.
Disorder of Post-Traumatic Stress
Post-traumatic stress disorder affects many people and is caused by a traumatic or terrifying event, often involving terrifying and long-lasting memories of the event. Stress response syndromes, on the other hand, involve a person developing emotional and behavioral symptoms in response to stressful events.
