The most common include depressive disorders, which can be chronic or acute, and bipolar disorder, which is characterized by episodes of mania and depression.
Anxiety disorders consist of generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, panic disorder, and agoraphobia. These conditions are characterized by an intense state of worry and fear resulting from a threatening event or life stressor.Their state of worry becomes more intensified over time.

It can include a combination of behavioral symptoms such as difficulty paying attention, disorganization, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) & Trauma
Post-traumatic stress disorder can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, serious accident, terrorist incident, sudden death of a loved one, war, physical assault, emotional or verbal abuse or other life-threatening events. Individuals with PTSD continue to be severely depressed and anxious for months or even years following the event. PTSD is diagnosed after a person experiences symptoms for at least one month following a traumatic event. However symptoms may not appear until several months or even years later.
Schizophrenia is a complex brain disorder. It often runs in families and can cause troubling symptoms. These may include hearing voices, and having trouble thinking clearly and relating to others. It often starts suddenly in early adulthood. There is no cure for this illness, but it can be managed with medicine and supportive therapy.
Personality is a way of thinking, feeling, and behaving that makes us unique and individual. A personality disorder is when personality interferes with one’s participation in daily activities causes distress, and differs from cultural expectations, and remains this way over time. The problematic patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving that are characteristic of personality disorders usually start by late adolescence or early adulthood and, without treatment, can adversely affect a person’s life over the long-term.
Eating Disorders (Anorexia/Bulimia)
Anorexia is an eating disorder that results in unhealthy weight loss. People with anorexia may have a distorted body image, and they restrict their calories and/or purge to reach unrealistic weight goals. Bulimia is an eating disorder in which a person eats large amounts of food (binges) and then tries to undo the effects of the binge in some way. Usually, the person rids (purges) the food that was eaten.
