Mood Disorders

Mood disorders, also called affective disorders, are a mental health condition involving changes in mood or emotion that are serious enough to interfere with daily life. Unlike normal mood swings that we all experience on occasion, emotional disturbances caused by a mood disorder are vastly different — they’re persistent, disruptive and severe, making it difficult to function normally or perform routine tasks. Mood disorders can affect anyone, including children and teenagers, but symptoms vary from person to person and range from mild to extreme. There are two main groups of mood disorders that are broadly recognized, and the effect a mood disorder has on your life will depend on the kind you are experiencing.The two most common types of mood disorders are depression and bipolar disorder, but related conditions, subtypes and variations are also included in this category.



Known as major depression, clinical depression or major depressive disorder, depression disorder is a medical illness that causes a consistent feeling of sadness and lack of interest. Depression affects a person’s concentration, how they embrace and handle daily life, as well as behavior patterns and thoughts, and can lead to emotional and physical problems. Typically, people with depression find it hard to go about their day-to-day activities, and may also think that life is not worth living. Individuals who have depression struggle with simple things other people take for granted. An individual who is experiencing these feelings can turn to a depression treatment center to start the healing process.



Anxiety Disorders come in varying designations. A Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is a chronic disorder characterized by excessive, long-lasting anxiety and worry about nonspecific life events, objects, and situations. People who suffer from a generalized anxiety disorder often experience fear to a petrifying level. They constantly worry about their health, money, family, work, or school, and are incapable of finding healthy coping mechanisms.



Bipolar Disorder I is classified as a mood disorder. It is the most severe form of manic depression, and is distinguished by one or more manic episodes, usually accompanied by major depressive episodes. During manic episodes of Bipolar 1 Disorder, a person may develop delusions and even suffer from hallucinations. These are the symptoms of psychosis. When this happens, the condition is called Bipolar I with psychotic features. Bipolar I can critically impair a person’s daily functioning.



Research shows that co-occurring disorders are extremely common, as it’s estimated that 50% of individuals with severe mental disorders are affected by substance abuse. Previously called dual disorder and dual diagnosis, a co-occuring disorder is when individuals have a co-existing mental illness and substance use disorder. Each disorder can vary in severity and may change over time. Treatment for those with multiple disorders may be more challenging, intense, and take longer. In these situations, both the mental health issue and the substance addiction have their own symptoms, which may interfere with daily life.
