Mental Health

What are the most common mental health concerns today?

There are hundreds of different specific mental illnesses, but anxiety and depressive disorders are among the most common in the world. 

Anxiety disorders

Anxiety disorders such as generalized anxiety disorder can trigger symptoms like persistent and oppressive worry, being on-edge, concentration problems, and sleeplessness. In some anxiety disorders, like panic disorder, the anxiety could be so bad that it causes chest pain, heart palpitations, and other frightening symptoms.

Depressive disorders

Depressive disorders such as major depressive disorder, persistent depressive disorder, and seasonal affective disorder can cause symptoms like loss of interest in your life, powerful feelings of hopelessness, irritability, morbid thoughts, withdrawing from your loved ones, lethargy, sleep changes, and weight changes.
