A youngster with an Anxiety Disorder experiences anxiety more strongly and more often than others, and has excessive worry to an extent that it may interfere with other areas of his or her life.
Children of any age have worries, but when the worries and fears do not go away, are not appropriate for their age, and stop children from participating in their usual activities in the same way, an Anxiety Disorder may be present. Anxiety disorders are among the most successfully treated mental health illnesses.
Major Depressive Disorder
Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder that affects about one percent of Americans. People with this disorder may hear voices other people don't hear. They may believe other people are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts, or plotting to harm them.
Treatment can help relieve symptoms associated with schizophrenia so that individuals who have this disorder can successfully work, play, and participate in their communities.
Individuals who have Co-occurring disorders have at least one mental disorder, as well as an alcohol or drug use disorder.
While these disorders may interact differently in any one person (e.g., an episode of depression may trigger a relapse into alcohol abuse, or cocaine use may exacerbate schizophrenic symptoms), at least one disorder of each type can be diagnosed independently of the other.
