Disorder or Treatment 

Addiction (Alcohol, Nicotine, and Drug Dependence)

Addiction is the habitual use of any substance in spite of its ill effects. Genetic traits and environment contribute to one’s proclivity to addiction. Although serious, addiction is a very treatable disease.

 

Anxiety and Panic Disorders

An anxiety disorder may look very different depending on each case. The symptoms can be both mental and physical. Anxiety disorders include: Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Phobia, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Attention Deficit Disorder

ADD is a disorder in which the sufferer experiences difficulty focusing on any task for an extended period of time. Common in children, ADD can be a problem for adults as well. While it can negatively affect one’s productivity, treatment can be very effective.

Autism Spectrum Disorder 

The Autism spectrum includes a number of mental disorders including autism, Rett syndrome, and Asperger syndrome. Any of these disorders can cause delays in cognitive development which hinder a person’s ability to communicate and relate to others. Early diagnoses and treatment can have a massive impact on the person’s quality of life.

Brain Lesions and Trauma 

Brain Lesions refer to a damaged area of the brain, often resulting from some sort of trauma. Of course, any brain damage can have detrimental effects on one’s mental and physical function. CT scans and MRIs are routine methods of detecting a brain Lesions.

Memory and Aging 

As we age our bodies are subject to issues that, while serious, can be very manageable with proper care. Memory lapses and difficulty completing routine, cognitive tasks are some of the common problems that come with aging. Identifying the catalyst for such problems makes it possible to treat and overcome them.

Mental Retardation 

Mental retardation is a generally diagnosed very early in a person’s life. It is marked by an inability to develop the common intellectual skills of a normal human being. The general rule is that an IQ below 70 denotes mental retardation, as it is so severe that it significantly impairs the person’s ability to function independently.

Mood Disorders (Bipolar Disorder, Depression)

Depression and bipolar disorder are examples of mood disorders characterized by uncontrollable swings in one’s emotional state. Obviously this can make living a normal, peaceful life more challenging. Judgment is often impaired or completely suspended as a result of inexplicable sadness or anger. Finding the right treatment can have massive, life-altering effects for a patient.

Neurobehavioral Medicine 

This refers to medical treatment aimed at addressing the natural behavior of those with a nervous system disorder. Often cognitive and motor skills are impaired by such a disorder, but with proper treatment and therapy, quality of life can be improved.

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is a condition in which some repeatedly experiences nearly obsessive thoughts about completing certain actions. The sufferer can communicate no explanation for the desire, only that it is irresistible. Like most anxiety disorders it is treatable.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

PTSD, most commonly associated with veterans of war, is an anxiety disorder that is catalyzed by a specific traumatic event. Having faced death, the sufferer will flashback to the horror of the event either spontaneously or by environmental triggers. Therapy can make the anxiety disorder manageable.

Psychosis 

Psychosis is a condition in which a person is living more in delusions than in reality, even hallucinating sounds, images, and events. Psychosis is a state that can be triggered by any number of circumstances. It is often the product of deeper issues of mental illness.

Relationship Difficulties 

(Hard to concisely define or address with respect to medicine. Any explanation would seem inconsistent/out-of-place with the others on this list)

Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia carries a dark stigma but is as treatable as many other mental disorders. It is defined by the sufferer’s inability to separate fantasy from reality, making proper judgment nearly unattainable.

Social Learning Disorder

(Couldn’t find information of this as a specific disorder. Seems to me to describe (and thus be redundant with the Autism Spectrum described above. I recommend omitting.)

Sleep Disorders 

Sleep deprivation resulting from a sleep disorder can have severe detrimental effects on one’s life. Sleep disorders are very common and treatable. They include snoring, sleep apnea, insomnia, sleep deprivation, and restless legs syndrome.

 

Weight and Eating Disorders

Anorexia and Bulimia are two of the most common eating disorders. An eating disorder is a completely psychological disorder that affects the way a person sees and treats his/her own body. Rooted in depression and insecurity, an eating disorder can have dangerous effects on someone’s mental and physical health. Therapy and treatment can save the life of someone with an eating disorder.

Women’s Mental Health
