Generally, most mental illnesses do not interfere with one’s physical health. They only influence the feelings, thinking, or perception of the patients. It was published in a study conducted in the United States of America that 4-5th inhabitant of the world suffers from certain sort of mental disorders. There are specific mental illnesses that do not get noticed, even by the sufferer for a long time until their symptoms become very destructive. Some mental illnesses aggravate during specific seasons of the year. For instance, many people feel depressed and down with less energy during the winter season. However, the good news is that mental illnesses are treatable under an expert’s supervision.

Being one of the best psychiatrists in Bhopal, we have come up with this blog post to introduce you to a couple of the most common types of mental illnesses. So, without wasting any time, let us have a look at them in brief:

1 – Phobia

The main symptom of phobia is a fear of specific situations or objects that are usually not so fearful. For instance, fear of attending a party, and so on. Phobia creates a state of horror, and the sufferer can go to any extent to escape those things that frighten them. Often, a phobia is accompanied by sweating, tachycardia, depression, as well as panic attacks, darkening of the eyes.

2 – Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

In simple words, people with obsessive-compulsive disorder experience unwanted thoughts and performs obsessive actions when the thoughts overpower them. If left untreated, the obsessive-compulsive disorder can lead to other mental health conditions, such as anxiety, depression and that’s just the beginning. Being a psychiatrist in Bhopal, we have encountered people with OCD who used to wash their hands 60 times before lunch, so as not to get infected, and was still afraid.

3 – Drug Addiction

Drug addiction is a mental health condition resulting from the use of drugs or other similar substances. This disorder creates a strong urge in the sufferer to take the drug constantly or periodically to feel its effect. The sufferer may exhibit dependence on more than one drug. Drug addiction is also known as substance abuse. Many psychiatrists offer effective drug addiction treatment in Bhopal, and Dr. Sanjeet Diwan is one of them.
