Almost 20% of the US population suffers from mental health disorders. More than two hundred distinct mental disorders have been identified and categorized thus far. Seven main types of mental illness encompass these many conditions.

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety affects a large percentage of the population at some point, although most individuals eventually learn to deal with it. Anxiety does not typically subside for people who suffer from anxiety disorders. Anxiety can become chronic if a person with an anxiety problem does not receive therapy. About 18.1% of the adult population in the United States suffers from an anxiety condition, making it the most prevalent mental health issue. Common anxiety disorders include phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and social phobia.

Mood Disorders

Illnesses of the mind that cause emotional difficulties are called mood disorders. Extreme and uncontrollable states of happiness (mania) or sadness (depression) are common symptoms of mood disorders. Although everyone experiences emotional “highs” and “lows,” those who suffer from a mood disorder often stay in these extreme states for far longer than the rest of us. Depression, dysthymia, and bipolar disorder are three of the most prevalent types of mood disorders. 6.7% of American adults experience major depressive episodes each year. Medication and psychotherapy are both effective in treating mood disorders.

Psychotic Disorders

Psychotic disorders are severe mental illnesses that manifest primarily in altered thought patterns. People experiencing a psychotic episode often lose touch with reality as they become preoccupied with hallucinations and delusions. Those who have lost touch with reality are more likely to mistrust those around them and to take risks that could endanger themselves or others. Therefore, those who suffer from psychotic diseases need to be medicated and treated. Schizophrenia, delusional disorder, and short psychotic illness are the most prevalent forms of psychosis. Only 0.25% to 0.64 % of the U.S. population is thought to experience psychotic symptoms at any given time.

Eating Disorders

Mental illnesses such as eating disorders are characterized by a skewed perspective on food and its role in the body. However, these conditions are typically the result of underlying issues, such as a lack of self-control, despite their seeming preoccupation with eating. A professional approach is necessary for treating eating disorders because of their severity. It is estimated that 9% of people worldwide suffer from an eating disorder. Typical eating disorders include Pica, Bulimia, Anorexia, and Binge eating.


Dementia is an umbrella term for a group of mental health conditions that lead to memory loss. As memory loss progresses, it can become difficult for those affected to take care of themselves. Alzheimer’s, Huntington’s, and Parkinson’s are just a few more frequent forms of dementia.

Personality Disorders

A personality disorder is a mental illness characterized by dysfunctional thought patterns, behavior, and overall functioning. Psychotherapy is the standard gold treatment for personality disorders. Narcissistic personality disorder, dissociative identity disorder (DID), borderline personality disorder (BPD), and antisocial personality disorder (ASPD) are only a few of the most prevalent forms of mental illness.

A person’s style of thinking, acting, or feeling can be altered by mental illness. Treatment can alleviate the suffering caused to the affected individual and their loved ones. Clients at Revive Therapeutic Services receive treatment for a wide range of primary mental health issues, including but not limited to: depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, bipolar disorder, personality disorder, mood disorder, and more.
