Mental health experts use the term ‘psychological disorders’ or ‘mental illnesses’ to define a group of conditions that impact a person’s behaviors, feelings, thoughts, and perceptions. These disorders affect the person’s professional and personal relationships, as well as their ability to function on a day-to-day basis. However, with mental health treatment, medication, or a combination of the two, many people are able to control their psychological disorders and live symptom-free.
If you believe that you have a psychological disorder, we encourage you to reach out to Rose Hill Center at 866.367.0220 and ask about our mental health services. We’d be happy to talk to you about your condition and the treatment options available.
Common Psychological Disorders
Whereas doctors may have dismissed persistent feelings of sadness or anxiety in the past today, experts recognize these as severe health conditions. We’ve listed some of the most common conditions below for your convenience.
Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in the United States, but this psychological disorder actually encompasses a range of conditions, including:
- Generalized anxiety disorder
- Social anxiety
- Panic disorder
Those with anxiety suffer from continuous stress or fears on a continuous basis. Without anxiety treatment, this condition can have a significant impact on a person’s life, causing them to avoid certain situations or triggers.
If someone feels sad or melancholy for periods of over two weeks, they may be experiencing depression. However, this mood disorder is more than being sad. It involves reduced energy, a loss of interest and enjoyment in the person’s hobbies, and feelings of hopelessness. As with other mental health conditions, there are varying levels of severity and symptoms. However, in extreme cases, depression can lead to an increased risk of suicidal thoughts or actions without the help of depression treatment.
Bipolar disorder is a condition that many doctors misdiagnose, identifying it as depression or hyper-mania. Because this condition involves dramatic mood swings between the two states, the person may go from feeling sad and disinterested all the time to energetic and distracted within a period of a few days. It’s vital to seek bipolar disorder treatment for this condition as these intense mood swings can have devastating effects.
Schizophrenia is one of the more intense conditions we treat at Rose Hill Center. When someone has this psychological disorder, they may lose touch with reality, causing them to behave in ways that society finds to be nonsensical or inappropriate. It can cause the person to have difficulty maintaining relationships or holding down a job. However, with the proper treatment, it’s possible to control this condition with schizophrenia treatment, allowing the person to live a relatively normal life.
This condition is another psychological disorder that doctors often misdiagnose as either depression or bipolar disorder. This condition involves symptoms such as:
If you or someone you love has recently been diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, it’s vital to seek the proper treatment. Doing so can ensure that you get the care you need for your unique situation, allowing you to thrive.
