There may be times when a patient faces periods of stress, unhappiness, or a sense of suicidal thoughts. The classification of mental health disorder is dependent upon the severity and length of time the patient is affected.
Some mental health concerns that may be addressed in the clinic setting are:
- Autism Spectrum disorders
- Bipolar Disorder
- Borderline Personality Disorder
- Eating Disorders
- Gender Dysphoria
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
- Panic Disorder
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Choose one of the mental health disorders listed above, then describe common symptoms of the disorder, identify possible causes, and types of treatments that could be used. In addition, using the internet, locate one online or local support group that can be used as supportive information during a patient education session.
