Mood Disorders Q&A

What are mood disorders?

Mood disorders include mental health conditions that cause changes in how you feel and think about the world around you, affecting your behavior. Mood disorders are serious and impair normal functioning, making it hard to sleep, eat, and spend time with others,

The team at Holistic Behavioral & TMS Therapy specializes in treating mood disorders, creating personalized plans that help you attain mental wellness.

What are the types of mood disorders?

There are several types of mood disorders. Some of the more common include:

 

Major depressive disorder (MDD)

MDD is common and causes a low mood that persists for two or more weeks. The mood brought on by MDD is so severe that it makes it hard for you to go about your regular routine.

 

Persistent depressive disorder (PDD)

PDD is a chronic depression that causes a low mood that lasts two or more years. The mood changes that occur with PDD are less severe than with MDD.

 

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)

SAD is a type of depression that occurs during certain times of the year when there’s less natural sunlight, usually starting in the fall and lifting in the spring. 

 

Bipolar disorder

People with bipolar disorder experience moods that rapidly shift between elation and depression. These mood changes affect energy, thinking patterns, and behavior.

Some mood disorders, like bipolar disorder, are chronic conditions that require ongoing management.

What happens during evaluations for mood disorders?

The team at Holistic Behavioral & TMS Therapy conducts a thorough psychiatry consultation during your first visit to understand your current emotional state. They ask about your symptoms, when they started, and how they affect your life. The team may also conduct specific tests to confirm or rule out a diagnosis. 

They also review your medical and mental health history. Psychiatry consultations are done at the office or through telepsychiatry.
