The perception of psychological disorders in our society today is misjudged. Mental disorders have been labeled as simply conditions that do not fit with what society likes. My mother used to always scold me for chastising the fact that depression is a mental disorder, because she is a nurse and learned of many mental disorders that her patients deal with daily. There are several forms of mental disorders. They include but are not limited to: Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Panic Disorder, several phobias, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Bipolar Disorder, Personality Disorders and more. Some can even lead to serious threats to the lives of the people with these disorders such as suicide. From what I have observed and what I perceive is that most every human being has some characteristics of these diseases listed and should take them seriously because we can't necessarily claim that our traits and personalities are not partially associated with characteristics of these disorders. What society can do as a whole is be conscientious of others to make sure that serious pain does not occur to people with these disorders and will prevent them from depression and thoughts of suicide.
