Depression – Treatment of sad mood, loss of interest in pleasure, decreased energy, isolation, or feelings of worthlessness.

Anxiety – Anxiety disorders are often debilitating chronic conditions, which can be present from an early age or begin suddenly after a triggering event. They are prone to flare up at times of high stress.

A good assessment is essential for the initial diagnosis of an anxiety disorder, preferably using a standardized interview or questionnaire procedure alongside expert evaluation and the views of the affected person. A family history of anxiety disorders is often suggestive of the possibility of an anxiety disorder.

Emotional Disorders – Emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) is a broad category which is used to group a range of more specific perceived difficulties. Both general definitions as well as concrete diagnosis of EBD may be controversial as the observed behavior may depend on many factors.
