Hey, I love to read and write poems. My hubs are an attempt to ignite the spirit to a happy life in people battling mental disorders.

Mental disorders are a big challenge for people worldwide. To help ourselves and to help people around lets have a quick glance at some of the basic different forms they take.


Feeling low? Tired? Unable to focus on anything. Sad? Guilty? Do you have low self-esteem, irregular sleep or appetite? This may be a sign of depression. Depression can be long lasting or recurrent. Depression hampers a person’s ability to cope with daily life. People with depression may show multiple physical complains without the involvement of any physical factor.

There are lot of effective prevention programs for all age groups. There are also effective treatments. Mild to moderate depression can be effectively treated with talking therapies.. The maintenance or reactivation of social networks and social activities is important.

Take pride in speaking up, take pride in helping yourself or your loved one, please reach out to the nearest health professional.

Bipolar disorder

Changes in mood - elevated or irritable mood, changes in energy, rapid speech, ch anges in activity levels, inflated self-esteem and a decreased need for sleep, can be signs of bipolar disorder. From periods of extremely irritable or energized behavior (known as manic episodes) to very sad, indifferent or hopeless periods (known as depressive episodes) it consists of both manic and depressive episodes separated by periods of normal mood. People who have manic attacks but do not experience depressive episodes are also classified as having bipolar disorder.

Effective treatments are available for the treatment of the acute phase of bipolar disorder and the prevention of relapse. Psychosocial support is an important component of treatment.

Psychoses, including schizophrenia, affects the way a person thinks, feels and behaves. Hallucinations and delusions are common psychotic experiences. People with schizophrenia may seem to have lost touch with reality and this disorder makes it difficult for people to live a normal life.

Schizophrenia typically begins in late adolescence or early adulthood. Gradual changes in thinking, mood, and social functioning often begin before the first episode of psychosis, usually starting in mid-adolescence. Schizophrenia can occur in younger children, but it is rare for it to occur before late adolescence.

Help your loved one to get treatment and encourage them to stay in treatment.With appropriate treatment and social support, affected people can lead a productive life and be integrated in society. Be respectful, supportive, and kind without tolerating dangerous or inappropriate behavior


Dementia deteriorates a person’s thinking and processing capability beyond what might be expected from normal aging. It affects memory, thinking, orientation, comprehension, calculation, learning capacity, language and judgement. The impairment in cognitive function is commonly accompanied and occasionally preceded by deterioration in emotional control, social behavior or motivation.

Dementia is said to be caused due to inflammation in brain.Treatments for dementia are in various stages of clinical trials but love, support and guidance from a health professional can improve the lives of people with dementia.
