How Are Mental Health Disorders Diagnosed?

Mental health professionals use the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM, currently in the 5th or most-recent DSM-5TR versions). 
The DSM is a standard set of symptoms to reference when assessing clients, which helps to more accurately diagnose mental health concerns and, in turn, create a more effective plan of care.


What is Depression?

Depression, (otherwise known as major depressive disorder or clinical depression), is a common and serious mood disorder. Those who suffer from MDD experience persistent feelings of sadness and hopelessness and lose interest in activities they once enjoyed. Aside from the emotional problems caused by depression, individuals can often present with other physical symptoms such as difficulty sleeping and chronic pain. To be diagnosed with depression, symptoms must have been present for at least two weeks.


Criteria for Diagnosing GAD

  1. The presence of excessive anxiety and worry about a variety of topics, events, or activities. Worry occurs more often than not for at least six months and is clearly excessive.

  2. The worry is experienced as very challenging to control. The worry in both adults and children may easily shift from one topic to another.

  3. The anxiety and worry are accompanied by at least three of the following physical or cognitive symptoms (In children, only one of these symptoms is necessary for a diagnosis of GAD):

  • Edginess or restlessness

  • Tiring easily; more fatigued than usual

  • Impaired concentration or feeling as though the mind goes blank

  • Irritability (which may or may not be observable to others)

  • Increased muscle aches or soreness

  • Difficulty sleeping (due to trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, restlessness at night, or unsatisfying sleep)


How it is diagnosed?

Panic disorder is classified as a type of anxiety disorder under the DSM-5. It is characterised by the presence of recurrent panic attacks, which may be triggered or unexpected. 

In addition, at least one panic attack is followed by one month or more of the person fearing that they will have more attacks and causing them to change their behavior, which often includes avoiding situations that might induce an attack.


What is a Specific Phobia?

A specific phobia is an intense and irrational fear of a specified object or situation. A phobia is an excessive and overwhelming fear that results in avoidance or extreme distress. Some phobias are centered on a specific fear object, while others are complex and tied to different situations or circumstances. 

Phobias affect about 19 million adults, and women are two times more likely than men to have a specific phobia. Some people experience multiple specific phobias simultaneously. Approximately 75% of people with a specific phobia fear more than one object or situation.


What is PTSD?

Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric disorder that may occur in people who have directly/indirectly experienced or witnessed a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, a serious accident, a terrorist act, war/combat, or rape or who have been threatened with death, sexual violence or serious injury.

People with PTSD have intrusive memories, disturbing thoughts and negative feelings related to their experience that last long after the traumatic event has ended. These symptoms cause significant problems in social or work situations and in relationships as people with PSTD might react differently as compared to the past. Their ability to accomplish daily tasks are also being interfered.


What is OCD?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental disorder that causes repeated unwanted thoughts or sensations (obsessions) or the urge to do something over and over again (compulsions). Some people can have both obsessions and compulsions.

Everyone has habits or thoughts that repeat sometimes. However, people with OCD face difficulties to stop thinking or doing things repeatedly. They do not find these acts to be enjoyable and might feel distressed for unable to get rid of them. 


What is Schizophrenia?

Schizophrenia is a serious mental illness that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves, as well as the ability to relate to others.  The signs and symptoms may vary, but usually involve delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech, disorganized motor movements or negative symptoms. People with schizophrenia usually show an impaired ability to function well in daily life activities. 


What is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder (formerly called manic depression) is a mental health condition that causes extreme mood swings during distinct periods of days to weeks (which is called mood episodes) that include emotional highs (mania or hypomania) and lows (depression).

There are three types of bipolar disorders (Bipolar I Disorder, Bipolar II Disorder & Cyclothymic Disorder). They may include mania or hypomania and depression. Symptoms can cause unpredictable changes in mood and behavior, resulting in significant distress and difficulty in life.


What is Substance Use Disorder?

Substance Use Disorder (also known as addiction) is a mental disorder in which a person faces difficulties to control the use of substances such as legal or illegal drugs, alcohol, or medications, which leads to harmful consequences. The person's ability to function in day-to-day life becomes impaired, and he/she keeps using the substance despite knowing it is causing or will cause problems.


What is gender dysphoria?

Gender dysphoria refers to the psychological distress that results from an incongruence between one’s sex assigned at birth and one’s gender identity. Gender dysphoria can affect many aspects of life, including daily activities. People with gender dysphoria  might suffer from high levels of stigmatization, discrimination and victimization, contributing to negative self-image and increased rates of other mental health disorders.


What is Personality Disorder?

A personality disorder is a mental health condition in which the person has a rigid and unhealthy pattern of thinking, feeling, functioning and behaving.

There are 10 specific types of personality disorders, which are grouped into three clusters based on similar characteristics and symptoms:

  • Cluster A - paranoid personality disorder, schizoid personality disorder, schizotypal personality disorder

  • Cluster B - antisocial personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, histrionic personality disorder, narcissistic personality disorder

  • Cluster C - avoidant personality disorder, dependent personality disorder, obsessive-compulsive personality disorder

People with a personality disorder usually have difficulties perceiving and relating to situations and people. In some cases, they may not realize that they have a personality disorder because their way of thinking and behaving seems natural to them. This causes significant distress and problems in relationships, work, school, and social functioning.


What is ADHD?

ADHD is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders affecting children. It is usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood. Symptoms of ADHD include inattention (not being able to keep focusing), hyperactivity (excessive movement/ behavior that does not fit to the setting) and impulsivity (hasty acts that occur without thought).


Based on National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), the prevalence rates of diagnosed ADHD among children and adolescents aged 4 to 17 in 2016 is 10.2%. As for adult, a study in 2020 showed that the global prevalence of persistent adult ADHD was 2.58% and that of symptomatic adult ADHD was 6.76%.


What is ASD?

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurological and developmental disorder caused by the differences in brain that affects people's interaction/ communication with others, learning process and behaviors. Autism is known as a “spectrum” disorder because there is wide variation in the type and severity of symptoms people experience. People with ASD have difficulty with social communication and interaction, and usually display restricted interests and repetitive behaviors. The symptoms usually appears in the first two years of life and can last throughout a person’s life.

The Correlation between Psychiatry and Ophthalmology

Information from

People with severe vision problems (blindness and extreme impairment) most likely suffered with mental health problems due to the drastic change caused by the vision impairments. A recent study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed that 1 in 4 adults with vision loss report experiencing anxiety or depression symptoms. People who lose their vision before 65 years old are five times more likely to develop a mental health condition than people aged 65 or older.

Besides, stress was identified to be a major factor in the development and progression of many eye conditions. People who experienced high level of stress for long period could encounter vision problems in different ways, such as dry eyes, double vision, eye strain, blurred vision, eye twitching double vision, and even vision loss.

Please seek help from the professionals when you identify yourself facing 1) adjustment problems with vision conditions and 2) stress-related vision problems.
