Anxiety is a normal and often adaptive response to stress or a perceived threat. It is a natural part of the human experience. It can serve as a protective mechanism by alerting us to potential dangers and helping us prepare for challenges. However, when anxiety becomes excessive, persistent, or disproportionate to the situation, it can interfere with daily life and well-being, leading to an anxiety disorder.
Clinical depression, also often referred to as major depressive disorder (MDD), is a mental health condition characterized by persistent and intense feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and a lack of interest or pleasure in activities. It goes beyond the typical ups and downs that people experience in their daily lives and can significantly impact a person’s thoughts, emotions, and overall ability to function.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that can develop in individuals who have experienced or witnessed a traumatic event, such as combat exposure, physical or sexual assault, natural disasters, accidents, or witnessing violence.
Substance abuse refers to the harmful or hazardous use of psychoactive substances, including alcohol and illicit drugs. It involves the repeated and excessive consumption of these substances, often leading to negative consequences for the individual’s physical health, mental well-being, relationships, and overall functioning.
Chronic pain is a persistent and often debilitating type of pain that lasts for an extended period, typically beyond the average healing time for an injury or illness. Unlike acute pain, which is a normal response to injury and usually resolves as the underlying cause heals, chronic pain persists over time. It can have a significant impact on a person’s daily life and well-being.
The term “end of life” refers to the final stages of a person’s life, typically when they are facing a terminal illness or advanced age and are approaching death. End-of-life care is a specialized form of medical and emotional support provided to individuals in this stage, with the primary goal of ensuring comfort, dignity, and the highest possible quality of life during their final days.
