Mental Disorders


Mental disorders, especially Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, and Bipolar Disorder, are pretty common disorders that I may come across in my patients. The way these disorders cause people to feel could affect the way the patients view therapy, so I would want to plan a session to make it comfortable for them. Generalized Anxiety Disorder, for example, can have symptoms that cause people to feel very uncomfortable. Symptoms can range from heart palpitations, nausea, to sensations of choking. People suffering from Major Depressive Disorder feel intense feelings of sadness and hopelessness, fatigued, and sometimes suicidal. Bipolar disorder can cause people to be in a manic stage, where they are uninhibited and extremely energetic, or in the depressive stage, in which they are very withdrawn. The most important aspect when dealing with patients with mental disorders will be to make them feel comfortable and that they are in a place where they will not be judged.
