Mental disorders include a wide range
of problems, including:
- Anxiety disorders, including panic disorder,
obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and
- Bipolar disorder
- Personality disorders
- Psychotic disorders, including schizophrenia
There are many causes of mental
disorders. Your genes and family history may play a role.
Your life experiences, such as stress or a history of abuse, may
also matter. Biological factors can also be part of the cause. A
traumatic brain injury can lead to a mental
disorder. A mother's exposure to viruses or toxic chemicals
while pregnant may play a part. Other factors may increase your
risk, such as use of illegal drugs or having a serious medical
condition like cancer.
Medications and counseling can help many mental disorders.
