There are a number of different types of anxiety disorders that people suffer from including generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, and phobia-related disorders. Stress is an expected part of anybody’s life but anxiety disorders involve more than just temporary worry or fear. For a person with an anxiety disorder, the feeling doesn’t go away. It can get worse over time and it can even interfere with daily activities such as job performance, schoolwork, and personal relationships. Fortunately, at Landmark Outpatient Services, our staff can help with anxiety management to allow patients to overcome some of these issues.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, or OCD, is a common and long-lasting disorder in which a person deals with uncontrollable thoughts and behaviors that they feel the urge and need to repeat over and over again. Some of these behaviors can include excessive cleaning, arranging and rearranging things in a certain way, and repeatedly checking that a door is locked or a light is turned off.
Similar to depression, bipolar symptoms include episodes of extreme lows and depressed moods that can meet the criteria for clinical depression. However, individuals with bipolar disorder will also experience extreme highs characterized by euphoria, an instance referred to as “mania”.
Clinical depression is more than just having a bad day or feeling down, it is a serious mood disorder that can impact the way you think, feel, and handle day-to-day activities. Some common symptoms associated with depression include feelings of sadness, hopelessness, loss of interest in normal activities, tiredness, slowed thinking, and more. There are many forms of depression, the most common being major depressive disorder.
Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a problem that develops in people after experiencing a shocking, scary, dangerous, or otherwise traumatic event. It is natural to feel afraid after a frightening event, yet most people will recover from this problem. If the issue persists, a person may be diagnosed with PTSD. People with this problem will feel stressed and worried, even when there is no danger present.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, is a mental disorder in which it makes it difficult for a person to pay attention and control impulsive behaviors. The person may also be restless and almost constantly active. There are a number of different factors that can contribute to ADHD, including genes, cigarette smoke, low birth weight, brain injuries, and more. People with ADHD tend to show three different types of symptoms: difficulty paying attention, being overactive, and acting without thinking.
