Mood disorders such as depression, cyclothymic disorder, and bipolar disorder, involve dramatic changes in emotional state, behaviours, and energy. While mood disorders can affect anyone, it is a condition that is more commonly developed and diagnosed in early adulthood. Common signs and symptoms of a mood disorder include:
- Feelings of worthlessness or helplessness
- Changes in eating or sleeping habits
- Risk taking behaviour
- Racing thoughts
- Withdrawal from family, friends, or social situations
- Changes in activity levels, taking on too much or neglecting responsibilities
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) has been proven effective in helping individuals with mood disorders regulate their emotions and have fewer, less dramatic ups and downs. Book an appointment with a member of our team today if you think you might have a mood disorder.
