What is Anxiety? Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress. It helps people deal with a tense situation at work, study harder for an
exam, or keep focused on an important speech. In general, it helps people cope. But when it becomes excessive, inappropriate,
or irrational it can be disabling. Anxiety
is characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts, and physical changes. People who are anxious usually have recurring
intrusive thoughts or concerns, avoid certain situations out of worry, and have physical symptoms such as sweating, trembling,
dizziness, a rapid heartbeat, or increased blood pressure. Anxiety Disorders include Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Specific
Phobias, Social Phobia, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Acute Stress Disorder, and Generalized

What is Bipolar Disorder? Bipolar Disorder, also known as Manic-Depressive Disorder, is a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood
and energy and impairs the sufferer's ability to carry out day-to-day tasks. Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder can be severe.
They are different from the normal ups and downs that everyone goes through from time to time. Bipolar Disorder can result
in damaged relationships, poor job or school performance, and even suicide. But Bipolar Disorder can be treated, and people
with this illness can lead full and productive lives. There
are four types of Bipolar Disorder: Bipolar I Disorder, Bipolar II Disorder, Cyclothymic Disorder (also called Cyclothymia),
and Bipolar Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (NOS).
- Bipolar I Disorder is characterized by Manic or Mixed (manic and depressed) Episodes that last at least seven days,
or by manic symptoms that are so severe that the person needs to be hospitalized immediately. Usually the person also experiences Depressive
Episodes lasting at least two weeks. The symptoms of mania and/or depression have to be a major change from the person's
- Bipolar II Disorder is characterized by
a pattern of Depressive Episodes alternating with Hypomanic Episodes, but doesn't feature any Manic or Mixed Episodes.
- Cyclothymic Disorder is a mild form of Bipolar Disorder characterized by Hypomanic
Episodes that alternate with mild Depressive Episodes for at least two years and don't meet the diagnostic requirements
for any other type of Bipolar Disorder.
- Bipolar Disorder
NOS is characterized by symptoms of Bipolar Disorder that don't meet the diagnostic requirements for either Bipolar I Disorder
or Bipolar II Disorder. For example, they may not last long enough or the person may not have enough of them. The symptoms
must be a major change from the person's normal behavior, however.

What is Depression? Everyone
occasionally feels blue or sad, but these feelings are usually fleeting and pass within a couple of days. In contrast, a Depressive
Disorder interferes with daily life and functioning and causes pain for both the depressed person and those around him. Depression
is a common and serious illness and most who experience it need treatment to get better. Regrettably, many depressed people
never seek treatment. However, the vast majority of depressed people, even those with the most serious depression, can get
better with treatment. Depressive Disorders include Major Depressive Disorder (Clinical Depression), Dysthymic Disorder (Dysthymia),
and variants such as Psychotic Depression, Postpartum Depression (Depression During and After Pregnancy), and Seasonal Affective
