Addictions
Addiction affects a person both physically and psychologically. A person can become dependent on either substance (i.e. drugs or alcohol) or to certain activities (e.g. gambling, sex), leading to recurrent social, interpersonal, or legal problems.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
While it is natural to feel restless and be unable to focus from time to time, for a person diagnosed with ADHD, they experience serious and persistent difficulty in sustaining attention, controlling impulses and hyperactivity..
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
People with OCD experience the symptoms of “obsession”, which are recurrent persistent ideas, thoughts, images or impulses. In order to reduce anxiety and find relief from these unrelenting obsessions, a person may develop “compulsions” or behaviours.
Dementia
We naturally worry for our aging loved ones as they become forgetful over time, thinking it might be an early onset of dementia. Dementia, however, is not a disease in itself.
Depression
Feeling sad and depressed is a natural response to setbacks and loss. For most of us, over time we learn to overcome our problems or accept changes in our lives. But for others, the sense of despair can become so severe that it dominates their lives.
Bipolar Disorder
Bipolar disorder is a mood disorder. The term ‘bipolar’ means that there are two extremes or polarities along the mood spectrum, where the person experiences depression, hypomania or mania.
