The term “mood disorder” is used as an umbrella for a number of specific conditions that affect the mood of an individual.
Bipolar disorder is a mental condition where an individual’s mood unpredictably alternates back and forth between mania and depression.
For many people diagnosed with bipolar disorder, functioning in normal circumstances can be difficult. This makes treating their condition all the more important in order to allow the individual to experience a normal social and work life.
Depression is a common mental health condition in which an individual experiences a persistent depressed mood. They may suddenly withdraw from activities they once enjoyed or notice that they aren’t feeling anything–even in happy circumstances.
This condition is most frequently diagnosed in women, though men often experience depression but do not pursue treatment. Since depression is a condition that can affect an individual’s quality of life, it is key for them to seek treatment as soon as possible.
Anxiety disorder is a common condition where an individual’s reaction to stress or nervousness is heightened or disproportionate, causing disruption of functioning. People with anxiety disorder often experience destabilizing feelings of worry and fear as a result of certain thoughts, triggers, or situations.Though feelings of anxiousness are normal, people with anxiety disorders may be left unable to function as a result of their condition.

Since so many people experience mood disorders, there is a wide variety of treatments available. However, it may take some trial-and-error for a patient to find the ideal option, or combination of options, that works best for them and their treatment plan.
More often than not, therapy is the first line of treatment offered by medical and mental health practitioners. Therapy is often successful in teaching patients how to alter their behaviors and thought patterns in order to manage their condition. Similarly, therapy can teach patients how to improve their interpersonal skills and reactions to environmental factors that are out of their control.
