Types of Mental Health Problems

Our Level 2 Certificate in Awareness of Mental Health Problems course also covers different mental health problems, which are given below.

Anxiety Disorders: Many individuals feel anxiety at some point, but it is fleeting. Persons suffering from anxiety disorders do not see a reduction in their anxiety. Without therapy, an anxiety condition can worsen because the individual is constantly nervous.

Psychotic Disorders: Psychotic diseases are serious mental conditions that result in erroneous thinking. Individuals experiencing psychotic episodes usually have hallucinations or delusions, causing them to lose touch with reality. When a person loses touch with reality, they frequently begin to distrust people around them and make actions that endanger themselves or others. As a result, patients suffering from psychotic illnesses must get medication and treatment.

Schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, delusional disorder, and short psychotic illness are the most prevalent psychotic disorders. 

Eating Disorders: Eating disorders are a form of mental disease that involves a disordered connection with eating. These diseases appear to be food-related, but they are frequently the consequence of deeper issues, such as a lack of control. Eating disorders are exceedingly dangerous and require expert treatment. It is estimated that 9% of the world’s population suffers from an eating disorder.

Personality Disorders: A personality disorder is a sort of mental condition in which the individual thinks, behaves, and functions in an abnormal manner. Psychotherapy is required to address personality problems.

Among the most frequent personality disorders are:

  • Personality disorder with borderline characteristics
  • Personality condition characterised by narcissism
  • Personality disorder characterised by antisocial behaviour
  • Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) is a kind of dissociative identity

Mental Disorders

A clinically significant impairment in an individual’s cognition, emotional control, or conduct characterises a mental illness. It is typically associated with discomfort or impairment in essential functional domains. Mental illnesses are sometimes known as mental health issues. The latter is a larger phrase that encompasses mental illnesses, psychosocial impairments, and (other) mental states linked with considerable suffering, functional decline, or risk of self-harm. 


Major depressive disorder, commonly known as depression, constitutes a highly prevalent and medically significant condition that adversely affects an individual’s emotional, cognitive, and behavioural functioning.It is, thankfully, curable.
