Psychiatry is the medical specialty that diagnoses and treats mental disorders, usually those requiring medication. Psychiatry is now a highly visible activity, lack of care in the community, compulsion, suicide, drug and alcohol abuse are few motivations. Starting with the identification of the major mental illnesses and how they are considered distinction from normality. Flourishing of psychoanalysis and its later transformation into more accessible psychotherapies gave a chance for better understanding.

Psychology is the study of behavior and mind, embracing all aspects of conscious and unconscious experience as well as thought. It is an academic discipline and an applied science which seeks to understand individuals and groups by establishing general principles and researching specific cases. In this field, a professional practitioner or researcher is called a psychologist and can be classified as a social, behavioral, or cognitive scientist. Psychologists attempt to understand the role of mental functions in individual and social behavior, while also exploring the physiological and biological processes that underlie cognitive functions and behaviors.

Schizophrenia is one of the most disabling and emotionally devastating illnesses but because it has been misunderstood, it has received relatively little attention and its victims have been undeservingly stigmatized. Schizophrenia is not a split personality, a rare and very different disorder. Like cancer and diabetes, schizophrenia has a biological basis; it is not caused by bad parenting or personal weakness. Schizophrenia is, in fact, a relatively common disease diagnosed in population over the course of their lives. While there is no known cure for schizophrenia, it is a very treatable disease. Most of those afflicted by schizophrenia respond to drug therapy, and many are able to lead productive and fulfilling lives.

Mental illness includes a broad range of health problems. For most people, mental illness is thought of as an illness associated with severe behavioral disturbances such as violence, agitation and being sexually inappropriate. Such disturbances are usually associated with severe mental disorders. However, the vast majority of those with a mental illness behaves and looks no different from anyone else. These common mental health problems include depression, anxiety, sexual problems and addiction. There have been tremendous advances in our understanding of the causes and treatment of mental illnesses. Most of these treatments can be provided effectively. Mental health (psychiatric or psychologic) disorders involve disturbances in thinking, emotion, and behavior. Small disturbances in these aspects of life are common, but when such disturbances distress the person greatly and/or interfere with daily life, they are considered mental illness or a mental health disorder. The effects of mental illness may be long-lasting or temporary. These disorders are caused by complex interactions between physical, psychologic, social, cultural, and hereditary influences. Psychiatric medications are most often prescribed by primary care physician. However the best and most effective treatment for a mental health concern is from a mental health professional a psychiatrist, psychologist, clinical social worker or psychotherapist.

Psychologists specialize in a host of different areas within the field and identify themselves by many different labels. The field of psychology encompasses both research, through which we learn fundamental things about human and nonhuman animal behavior, and practice, through which that knowledge is applied to solving problems and promoting healthy human development. In each of the subfields, there are psychologists who work primarily as researchers, others who work primarily as practitioners and many who do both (scientist–practitioners). Indeed, one of psychology’s most unique and important characteristics is its coupling of science and practice, which stimulates the continual advancement of both.

Older people remain in good mental as well as physical health and continue to contribute to their families and to society.

Several behaviors, besides psychoactive substance ingestion, produce short-term reward that may engender persistent behavior despite knowledge of adverse consequences, i.e., diminished control over the behavior. These disorders have historically been conceptualized in several ways. One view posits these disorders as lying along an impulsive-compulsive spectrum, with some classified as impulse control disorders. An alternate, but not mutually exclusive, conceptualization considers the disorders as non-substance or “behavioral” addictions.

Mental health education is dedicated to promoting mental health and decreasing the stigma surrounding mental illness by providing education to enhance awareness and understanding. Mental health requires the development of cognitive, emotional, and social skills for which educational settings make an ideal context. Educational settings promote mental health when they provide children and adolescents with a sense of identity and self-respect, direction and meaning in life, mastery, belonging, safety, social support and participation. Good mental health is associated with better educational and behavioral outcomes. A range of effective interventions are available to promote mental health and to prevent and reduce mental illness.

Innovations in the range of evidence based medications, therapy and psycho-social services such as psychiatric rehabilitation, employment, housing and peer supports have made wellness and recovery a reality for people living with mental health conditions. Research showed that in the lifetime half of the cases with mental illness begin by age 14. Treatment options for mental health conditions will vary from person to person. Even people with the same diagnosis will have different kinds of experiences, needs, goals and objectives for treatment. For example, therapy can take many forms, from learning relaxation skills to intensively reworking your thinking patterns. Psychiatrists and psychologists use specially designed assessment tools to evaluate a person for a mental illness. Millions of Americans are surviving with many types of mental health problems such as social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, drug addiction and personality disorders.

Anxiety disorders are actually quite common and it has been estimated that over one quarter of the general population will experience a real anxiety disorder during their lifetime. Commonly anxiety disorders co-exist with other medical conditions, especially depression. The majority of people who have depressive illness also experience symptoms of anxiety, there is evidence that these two conditions share similar disturbances in brain chemical function, specifically in serotonin transmission. Symptoms of anxiety and depression thus frequently overlap and people with anxiety disorders may feel, as do depressed people, agitated, guilty, exhausted, insomniac, and socially withdrawn. Anxiety caused by medications or substance or alcohol abuse is not typically recognized as an anxiety disorder.

Depression is not a character flaw or sign of personal weakness. Depression is the common cold of mental disorders — most people will be affected by depression in their lives either directly or indirectly, through a friend or family member. Confusion is commonplace about depression, for example, about what depression exactly is and what makes it different from just feeling down. There is also confusion surrounding the many types of depression e.g.: Depression is characterized by a number of common symptoms. These include a persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” mood, and feelings of hopelessness or pessimism, unipolar depression, biological depression, manic depression, seasonal affective disorder, dysthymia, etc
