Mental health conditions
we can help with

Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia is a type of psychosis. Someone who has it might not be able to tell the difference between their own thoughts and reality. But it doesn’t make the person violent, nor does it cause them to have a split personality.

Depression

Depression is a common mental health condition which causes low mood, a loss of interest or pleasure in things and low concentration and energy levels. In addition, someone suffering with depression may also experience low self-worth, disturbed sleep, reduced appetite, and feelings of guilt.

Bipolar Type 1

Someone with Bipolar 1 will experience out-of-control mood swings that go from one extreme to the other. If their mood is jumping back and forth from depressed to elevated, they may have Bipolar 1.

Bipolar Type 2

This condition is less easy to spot. This is because the manic episodes aren’t as pronounced as they are with Bipolar Type 1. The levels of mania stay on the low side, and are sometimes mistaken for depression.

General Anxiety Disorder

General Anxiety Disorder (GAD) presents itself with a general feeling of tension and dread. Someone with GAD might experience constant and chronic worrying and nervousness. It’s less intense than a panic attack, but the feelings of anxiety last a lot longer, which makes normal life difficult to manage.

Autism

Autism can display lots of different symptoms. Things like: struggling to communicate and interact with other people, finding it hard to understand how other people think or feel or finding things like bright lights or loud noises overwhelming, stressful or uncomfortable.

Asperger's

Asperger’s Syndrome is a type of autism. Someone with Asperger’s will struggle with socialising and communication. They also might engage in repetitive or restrictive patterns of behaviour.

OCD

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common mental health condition. Someone living with OCD has obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours. This can be very distressing and interfere significantly with day-to-day life.

PTSD

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that’s caused by frightening or distressing events. Someone with PTSD will often have flashbacks or nightmares centred around their past experience, which causes feelings of isolation, stress, irritability, and even guilt.

ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has a big impact on a person’s behaviour. They can seem restless, impulsive, or have trouble concentrating. They might also have sleep and anxiety disorders. Symptoms are often noticed during childhood, becoming more apparent when circumstances change.

Personality Disorders

There are different types of personality disorders. Generally, someone living with one will think, feel, behave, or relate to others in a different way to other people. Borderline Personality Disorder and Antisocial Personality Disorder are some of the most common.

Whatever your mental health issue, Socium will put you on the right path.
