What Are Mental Disorders? How Can Psychiatrists Treat Them?

Mental disorders are those that interfere with one’s thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. A few of the most common and widespread include:

  1. Anxiety: Excessive worry and fear are characteristic of these disorders. One’s worry or fear is so excessive and strong that it disrupts their ability to function normally. 
  2. Depression: Feelings of despair and hopelessness, as well as disinterest in day to day activities, are characteristic of depression. Depression can be split into different types, including major depression and postpartum depression.
  3. Post-traumatic stress disorder: One might begin to experience symptoms of PTSD after experiencing a traumatic event that they don’t deal with properly. It comes with harmful symptoms like flashbacks and nightmares.
  4. Bipolar disorder: Distinct changes in mood and behavior characterize bipolar disorder. One experiences both manic and depressive episodes, which are two extremes. With mania, one displays overactivity, and with depression, one experiences those symptoms of depression we just talked about.
  5. Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: An inability to focus and hyperactivity are symptoms characteristic of ADHD. Often, children and teens are diagnosed with ADHD, which persists throughout their lives (though, it can be managed well).

Mental health conditions and disturbances can have a seriously negative impact on one’s life. In fact, they can have many seriously negative effects on one’s life. It’s important that we reach out for help when we experience warning signs of a mental illness so that we can address them quickly before they get worse.

Psychiatrists dedicate their lives to helping people with these very problems. There is no shame to be had in meeting with a psychiatrist, as there is likely nothing you could tell them that they haven’t already heard or seen before. Remember: These professionals function to help you. They are not there to judge you.

You might be wondering how psychiatrists differ from other mental health professionals you’ve heard of or worked with before. As we touched one earlier these are medical doctors who can offer comprehensive care. Unlike other mental health professionals, they can prescribe medication as part of your treatment plan.
