ADHD stands for: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders. While typically diagnosed in childhood, it can affect adults too. People with ADHD often struggle to pay attention, control impulses, and can be overly active.
Autism Spectrum Disorder is a developmental disability that is caused by differences within the brain. Some people with autism have a genetic condition, while other causes are not yet known. People with autism often struggle with social communication/interaction, restrictive or repetitive behaviors/interests, and may have different ways of learning, moving, and paying attention.
There is no scientific evidence that vaccines cause autism.
Anxiety can be normal in some situations, such as before taking a test. However, when the feelings become all-consuming or interfere with your daily life, it could be an anxiety disorder. There are several different types of anxiety disorders, such as Panic Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder, and they all have intense, excessive worries or fears tied to them.
Migraines are recurring headaches that can cause moderate to severe pain. They are often accompanied by sensitivity to light and sound, as well as nausea and vomiting. Migraines can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days.
Depression is a mood disorder that causes persistent sadness and loss of interest in activities you previously enjoyed. It can make doing daily activities difficult, affect how you think, feel, and behave, and may cause you to feel like life isn’t worth living. Depression is more than sadness and often needs treatment in order for you to start feeling better.
Trauma & PTSD
Trauma is a psychological, emotional response in your body after experiencing or witnessing something deeply distressing, such as violence or abuse. In some causes, people can develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event. The effects of trauma can impact your thoughts, feelings, and emotions, and interfere with your day-to-day functioning, especially if you develop PTSD.
Postpartum depression can happen after childbirth, due to the complex changes that are happening in your body on a physical, emotional, and behavioral level. It is a form of Major Depressive Disorder, not a character flaw. It can make it difficult to bond with your baby, and often has other symptoms of depression, such as a depressed mood and feeling of hopelessness.
Anger is a natural, normal emotion, but sometimes, it can overtake your life and the ways it is expressed can harm yourself and/or others. Uncontrolled anger can impact how people see you, affect your judgment, and have negative consequences in your life. Anger management helps you learn how to express your emotions, so you can avoid hurting others and keep it from running your life.
