Mental Health Q & A

What are some common mental health conditions?

There are many mental health conditions, some of which can be seriously debilitating. Two of the most common forms include:


Generalized anxiety disorder is a condition where normal feelings of anxiousness or worry you experience before an important event or big occasion start to take over, making you feel anxious all the time.


Anxiety can become crippling. It can cause panic attacks when you face a situation that triggers an overreaction in your fight or flight response.


Depression is a condition that causes a constant low mood, sadness, and feelings of worthlessness, hopelessness, and guilt. It’s not the same as feeling blue now and again, which is perfectly natural.


Depression can take the life and joy out of every waking moment for weeks, months, and often years at a time. When depression is very severe, it puts people at increased risk of suicide. 

Can children develop mental health conditions?

Mental health issues of all kinds can affect anyone. Children can also experience anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and other forms of mental health distress.


ADHD, or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, is a behavioral disorder that can make children and adults overexcitable and challenging to control impulses. Children with ADHD can have trouble coping with day-to-day activities, especially in school, causing frustration and disruption.


Many adults don’t receive a diagnosis of ADHD until they’re older, and although symptoms of ADHD may change over time, they don’t go away.
