At Into the Light, we know that mood disorders can significantly impact every aspect of your life. Whether you’re dealing with depression, bipolar disorder, or another mood disorder, our compassionate team provides effective treatment and support to help you find balance and regain control over your emotions.
Mood disorders are mental health conditions that affect a person’s emotional state. They can manifest as persistent sadness, intense mood swings, or periods of high energy followed by deep lows. These conditions can be challenging to manage, but with the proper treatment and support, it is possible to achieve stability and emotional well-being.
There are several types of mood disorders, including depression, bipolar disorder, cyclothymic disorder, and disruptive mood dysregulation disorder. Here are a few common signs and symptoms of mood disorders:
Feeling persistently sad, empty, or experiencing a low mood that lasts for a significant portion of the day and over an extended period.
Losing interest in activities that were once enjoyable or engaging, resulting in a decreased ability to experience pleasure.
Significant changes in appetite, either overeating or a loss of appetite, leading to weight gain or weight loss.
Difficulty falling asleep, staying asleep, or sleeping excessively, disrupting the normal sleep pattern.
Feeling restless, agitated, or having difficulty sitting still or concentrating.
Persistent feelings of tiredness, lack of energy, or a decrease in physical and mental stamina.
Having a negative self-image, feeling excessively guilty, or having an unwarranted sense of worthlessness.
Experiencing challenges in concentrating, making decisions, or maintaining focus on tasks.
Thoughts about death or suicide, making plans for suicide, or attempting suicide. This is a severe symptom requiring immediate professional help.
Rapid shifts in mood, from intense highs (mania or hypomania) to extreme lows (depression), seen in bipolar disorder.
Feeling easily irritated, impatient, or having a lower tolerance for frustration.
Avoiding social interactions, isolating oneself from others, or experiencing difficulty in social situations.
Finding it challenging to perform daily activities, maintain relationships, or fulfill work or school responsibilities.
Racing thoughts, increased energy levels, impulsivity, and engaging in high-risk behaviors (associated with manic episodes in bipolar disorder).
Experiencing ongoing and frequent shifts in mood that are beyond what is considered typical.
