Anxiety disorders are the most common of emotional disorders and affect more than 25 million Americans, according to the American Psychiatric Association. Many forms of anxiety disorders exist and have varying symptoms.
Depression negatively affects how you feel, how you think and how you act. Depression can set in at any time, but on average, it first appears during the late teens to mid-20s.
Adult Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD)
Adult ADHD is characterized by inattention, hyperactivity, impulsiveness or a combination of these traits. Symptoms may include an inability to focus, disorganization and restlessness. Adults may have a hard time organizing things, listening to instructions, remembering details, or difficulty completing tasks, which can affect their relationships at home, school and work.
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
PTSD is a psychiatric disorder that can occur in people who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event such a serious accident, a terrorist act, war or combat, or rape or other violent personal assault.
Panic Attacks and Agoraphobia
A panic attack is a period of intense fear or discomfort that strikes suddenly, often in familiar places, where there is typically nothing that is threatening an individual. When the attack comes, it feels as if there is a real threat to the person and the body reacts accordingly.
Agoraphobia often occurs during a panic attack. It is the fear of being in places or situations from which escape might be difficult or help might not be available in the event of a panic attack.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
OCD is an anxiety disorder in which people have recurring, unwanted thoughts, ideas or sensations that make them feel driven to do something repetitively. Behaviors such as hand washing, checking on things or cleaning can interfere with a person’s daily activities and social interactions.
Postpartum Depression (PPD) and Pregnancy-related Care
Approximately one in nine women suffer from PPD, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. PPD is a type of clinical depression that can affect women after they give birth. Sometimes the signs and symptoms of postpartum depression may feel the same as the “baby blues,” but instead of going away, they become worse and/or more frequent.
