Changes in mood that interfere with everyday life may indicate a mood disorder such as depression or bipolar disorder. Mood disorders are treatable medical conditions. With an appropriate diagnosis, treatment, and support, most people struggling with mood disorders will get better. The various types of Mood disorders are Bipolar Disorder which includes Mania and Depression, Dysthymia, Recurrent Depressive Disorder, Cyclothymia, Substance-induced mood disorders and those associated with other medical disorders.

A person with a personality disorder will not behave as expected by society and may become deviant in nature. Their way of inflexible approach may create an impairment of relationships. Some of the personality disorders include Paranoid, Schizoid, Schizotypal, Borderline, Histrionic, Narcissistic, Obsessive Compulsive, Anxious Avoidant, Dependant type, etc. With proper psychotherapeutic interventions, we could help them transform their life approach and life skills for better acceptance in the society.

One of the most common psychological disorder is Anxiety Disorder. It is said that 1 in 4 people suffer from some kind of Anxiety disorder at some time during their lifetime. The various types of anxiety disorders are Social Phobia/Social Anxiety, Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Specific Phobias, Generalised Anxiety Disorder, etc. With proper medical and psychological interventions like Cognitive Behavior Therapy, all of these disorders can be corrected.

Adjustment Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder are two psychological disorders which occur as a result of exposure to stressful life events. These disorders, depending on their severity, could be very disabling and may even become chronic in nature. If treated at the initial stages itself, these conditions are preventable.

The various types of psychotic disorders include Schizophrenia, Delusional Disorder, Acute and Transient Psychotic Disorder, Schizoaffective disorder, Substance-induced psychosis, etc. The characteristic hallmark of these illnesses is the presence of delusions, hallucinations and a loss of touch with reality and poor insight about one’s own illness. In severe cases, there could be gross disorganisation of behaviour and lack of personal care and a higher incidence of mortality.
