Mood Disorders
The most common mood disorders are depression and bi-polarity.


While everyone experiences moments of sorrow, sadness, and even melancholy, when such feeling-states persist they can be termed depression.

Bi-polarity combines such depressive states with bursts of wild elation and manic activity.

Both conditions are highly disruptive of a fulfilled life, and respond well to 'talk therapy'.

See also Depression and Bi-polarity for typical symptoms.
