Psychology is the study of the mind and behavior. It also refers to the application of such knowledge to the problems of individuals' daily lives and the treatment of mental illnesses. Psychologists are trained professionals in the field of psychology. They use what is called psycho-analysis to get to the root cause(s) of a patient's behavior and actions. They do this through a number of sessions in which the patient recalls specific memories of life-altering events. Psychologists use this information along with other observations to formulate the course of treatment for the mental illness or other self-limiting neuroses or irrational fears.

A mental illness can be described as a specific problem that causes a sustained disruption of your general well-being, behavior, or mood, and interferes with your normal functioning. It can result in either psychological or physiological symptoms. Mental illnesses fall into many different categories, each with its own set of symptoms. Some of the most prevalent disorders and their symptoms are:

  • Mood and Anxiety : Mood and anxiety disorders affect about 16% of adults of all countries and cultures, and usually have an underlying biological or environmental cause. This category includes general anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, agoraphobia and other specific phobias. Symptoms include feelings of uneasiness, pounding of the heart, extreme highs and lows, inability to cope with daily problems and activities, and marked personality changes. Bipolar Disorder : A mood disorder in which the person's mood swings from excessively high to extreme sadness and hopelessness, then back again to high, with normal moods in between. Symptoms include two extremes – on the high side: extreme irritability, unrealistic beliefs in one's abilities and powers, excessively high feelings, poor judgment, aggressive behavior, and reduced need for sleep; and on the low side: very sad and empty mood, feeling of worthlessness and hopelessness, loss of energy, difficulty in thinking and remembering, loss of appetite, and talk of suicide. ADHD (attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder ): Affects children from about the age of seven through adolescence. Children affected by it find it difficult to pay attention, aren't able to control their reactions, and are fidgety, impulsive, and hyperactive. Dementia : Loss of mental abilities and disintegration of personality due to impaired insight and judgment. It is not the result of old age as is usually believed, but is due to brain disease. Symptoms are memory disturbance, depression, personality change, confusion and disorientation, diminishing initiative, and delusions. Depression : This is not just feeling “down” or “sad” as is usually thought, but a serious medical illness which affects not only a person's moods but also normal bodily functions. Depression can be devastating to all areas of a person's everyday life, including family relationships, friendships, and the ability to work or go to school. Symptoms include feeling of hopelessness and worthlessness, agitation, loss of energy, change in appetite and sleeping patterns, loss of interest in activities, difficulty in thinking and concentrating, thoughts of death and suicide, and physical symptoms like headaches and stomach aches.
  • Schizophrenia : Mainly emerges in adolescence and young adulthood, and is probably the most disabling of mental disorders. People affected with it become limited in their ability to interact with other people, and often withdraw from the outside world. Symptoms include hallucinations, disorganized thinking, agitation, lack of drive and initiative, social withdrawal, apathy, and emotional unresponsiveness.


Anyone at anytime can develop any of the problems given above. If you find that just venting your feelings off makes you feel better, then the there is no problem as such. But if things don't turn around and your ability to function normally diminishes each day, then it is better to get professional help. The earlier the problem is detected and diagnosed, the faster and more effective the treatment is.
