Mental Disorder #10: Mood Disorders

We will all find that our mood will fluctuate at times. Events around us can have a direct impact on how we are feeling, making us feel sad one day and happy the next. Our moods are usually well balanced, though, and we will usually get by just fine. For some people, though, mood disorders can have a significant negative impact on their lives.

Perhaps the most common of all is depression. Depression is different from just feeling down. It can have a profound impact on the patient’s quality of life and can even lead to them harboring thoughts of suicide. Bipolar disorder is another common mood disorder and involves swings from feelings of elation to depression.
