Adjustment disorder is an emotional and behavioral reaction that develops after life stressors, and which is stronger or greater than what would be expected for the type of event that occurred.

When you have depression, it interferes with daily life and causes pain for both you and those who care about you. Depression is a common but serious illness.

Anxiety Disorders affect about 40 million American adults age 18 years and older (about 18%) in a given year,1 causing them to be filled with fearfulness and uncertainty.

Grief is a reaction to a major loss of someone or something. It is most often an unhappy and painful emotion. Everyone feels grief in their own way. But there are common stages to the process of mourning. It starts with recognizing a loss and continues until a person eventually accepts that loss.
