Mood Disorders

When you think of mood disorders, depression and bipolar disorder likely come to mind first. That’s because these are common, severe illnesses and leading causes of disability.  Depression and bipolar disorder can be emotionally crippling, making it difficult to live life to its fullest.  Mood disorders represent a category of mental disorders in which the underlying problem primarily affects a person’s persistent emotional state (their mood).  The US prevalence is 9.5% of the general population.  Women are 50% more likely than men to experience mood disorder during their lifetime.  Only half of those identified with a mood disorder are receiving treatment.  Do you know how to effectively manage the pharmceutical treatment of this disease?  What is the current evidence for efficacy of these medications?  Find out more about this topic and many others in Psychopharmacology for Primary Care.

 

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety Disorders affect about 40 million American adults age 18 years and older (about 18%) in a given year, causing them to be filled with fearfulness and uncertainty. Unlike the relatively mild, brief anxiety caused by a stressful event (such as speaking in public or a first date), anxiety disorders last at least 6 months and can get worse if they are not treated. Anxiety disorders commonly occur along with other mental or physical illnesses, including alcohol or substance abuse, which may mask anxiety symptoms or make them worse. In some cases, these other illnesses need to be treated before a person will respond to treatment for the anxiety disorder.  Susan Marie, Ph.D., PMHNP covers the treatment options for Anxiety Disorders in her program Psychopharmacology for Primary Care.  Check it out today to find all the latest effective therapies.
