As it turns out, mental disorders are fairly common and there are 3 that are more popular in most people. In fact, you probably know of someone with one of these conditions. The three most popular mental disorders are:
What are these disorders and how do they work? Any kind of mental illness is classified as a “disease” that can cause your thoughts and behaviors little or major distress. This causes a person to be unable to manage and operate through life with ease. Let’s take a look at these conditions in detail.
The bipolar disorder seems to be the most common. Just about everyone seems to blame their bad behavior and impatience on this one. The disorder is categorized as a manic-depressive illness and it is a common brain disorder that causes sudden and strange mood changes. Bipolar disorder also affects a person’s energy levels and makes it a challenge for them to take on the normal day-to-day tasks. If someone has bipolar disorder, you’ll know because the signs that speak the loudest are not subtle, but are instead rather ruthless. The signs that are subtle, you may not notice. The results of bipolar disorder aren’t pretty. The symptoms can cause relationships to fail, failure in the workplace and suicide is not out of the question either for someone who has this disease. Bipolar disorder can be treated and it is important that is treated with haste.
Where does it come from?
Sadly, the bipolar disorder is in the genetics of your family line. Research and studies say the “bipolar gene” is more common in males as they are more likely to develop bipolar disorder than others.
There is no cure for bipolar disorder, unfortunately. However, there are treatments that work successfully over a long period of time. The treatments provides relief for people with bipolar disorder and aids them in having mood swings under control far better than without the treatment, no matter how severe the symptoms may be. When taking medications, be careful. Not everyone will respond to the same medication the same way as people are different and so are the severities of each person’s bipolar disorder.
Panic disorder is can be serious and isn’t the same as normal fear. A panic disorder is a mental condition and type of anxiety that is completely random and will happen without a cause or sign of it coming and that is what makes this mental disorder so scary. You’ll recognize a person with panic disorder because when displaying sudden symptoms of fear and anxiety. As for symptoms on the outside, a person may display sudden sweating, rapid breathing and their heart begins racing.
Where does it come from?
Like bipolar disorder we recently covered, panic disorder can run through the family tree. Stressful events and/or extreme changes in a person’s life can trigger panic attacks in anyone. If these panic attacks continue over and over again, it becomes a disorder.
Counseling is the most common way to help reach a peace of mind again through psychotherapy. This counseling will focus on how a person responds emotionally during the mental illness is active. Treatment of this disorder requires sensitivity in order to help people to understand and take care of their disorder.
Depression is by far one of the most common disorders known to research. This isn’t your typical sadness. We often say we feel depressed when our team loses or things just don’t go our way. Such things are said by people who don’t understand how depression works. Depression takes a long time to get into and a long time to get out of. When you have depression, it negatively takes over your entire life and everyone around you suffers.
Where does it come from?
it is believed that there are types of depression that are tied to us by our families. This doesn’t mean you are exempt if you’ve never been depressed before. People without family histories of depression are can also be at risk of acquiring the depression disorder through devastating, tragic events that may happen in your life, much like the panic disorder. One example out of many of such a cause would be a dearly loved one passing.
So many people with the depression mental illness have lost hope in themselves and never seek treatment. All is not lost as it is important to remember that every storm will eventually pass and those with even the most severe depression can be restored and reclaim their lives again. There are medications, counseling (such as psychotherapies) that can treat people with depression successfully.
