Psychopharmacology in mental illnesses treatment

Mental illnesses have significant social, mental, and psychological health impacts on individuals. The symptoms that typify these conditions, including abnormal thinking, poor cognition, mood changes, irrational thinking and violent behavior make it almost impossible for an individual to participate in normal life activities. Some common mental health disorders are depression, bipolar disorder, addiction, and anxiety disorders. Studies show that most of these illnesses persist throughout life. Fortunately, they can be controlled through appropriate treatment. Psychotherapy and the use of pharmacological agents are the recommended interventions in the treatment of psychological disorders. This discussion explores the treatment of the bipolar disorder.
