MENTAL HEALTH CONDITIONS

 

DECEMBER 2020

Mental health distress is a common experience, particularly among graduate students who are likely to face imposter syndrome, burnout, and multiple sources of stress. Being informed about the various conditions that may cause distress is an important step when striving for positive mental health.

Mental health conditions are separated into categories that each have a unique symptom profile, and a diagnosis is typically made there is also significant distress or impairment. Notably, there is often significant overlap between conditions, and people may not fit neatly into any one category.

 Mental health exists on a continuum, and people may fluctuate along that continuum over time as their life circumstances or biological vulnerabilities change. Although a person may not be diagnosed with a specific condition, their experience is still valid and may benefit from treatment.
