Introduction As one of the most prevalent mental disorders in America; generalized anxiety disorder – or GAD – is an important diagnostic consideration for many professionals (Fricchione, 2004). GAD has been called “worry without reason” (Wehrenberg & Prinz, 2007, p. 116), and can affect several age groups. Children can develop GAD and suffer from it the rest of their lives. Adults can also develop it, and it is common among the aging and among women. This could also possibly be a result of societal pressures on men not to admit to the symptoms (Wehrenberg & Prinz, 2007).

Bipolar Disorder Critical Thinking May 29, 2014 Bipolar Disorder Bipolar disorder, also called manic depression disorder/illness can be defined in many ways. One definition is a mood disorder in which a person swings back and forth between wild euphoria and frenetic bursts of energy (the manic phase) to such deep, dark, and overwhelming depression that a person may contemplate or attempt suicide. (Hirshkowitz & Smith, 2004, p. 107) This illness/disorder seems to affect both men and women in about equal numbers and can get increasingly worse if left undiagnosed or even untreated. Types of Bipolar Disorder Bipolar disorder can be broken down into four basic types. Bipolar I disorder, bipolar II disorder, bipolar disorder not otherwise specified (BP-NOS), and cyclothymic disorder or cyclothymia.
The symptoms differ depending on what factors caused the disorder in a patient. There are also various methods to treat schizophrenia, the most common and widely-used being psychosocial and anti-psychotic medications (nimh.nih.gov). 2. Symptoms The symptoms of schizophrenia manifest themselves in different ways and at different times in a person’s life. The usual age at which symptoms manifest themselves is between 16 and 30.
