Depression: Depression is one of the most important psychological disorders that affect a person's emotions, thoughts and behaviors. Every person can feel sad, unhappy and unwilling from time to time. However, in depression, the situation is long lasting and negatively affects the daily functionality of the person. If left untreated, it affects the person's life negatively.
Anxiety Disorders: Every person feels anxious and stressed from time to time. Normally anxiety enables the person to adapt to the outside world and protect himself against dangers. For this reason, a certain level of anxiety is actually necessary for us to survive. However, if this anxiety started to be experienced very intense and continuously, if it went out of control and started to disrupt the daily functionality of the person, it is considered as a problem. There are anxiety disorders with different characteristics. These are: Phobias, Panic Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
