Challenges for Individuals

Mental health is a growing concern for many adults, affecting a significant portion of the population. Below you will find the key individual challenges that we work with at Intermind.

Addiction

Many adults struggle with addiction, which manifests as a compulsive need to engage in harmful behaviours despite the negative consequences to one’s life. These compulsive behaviours can focus on drugs, alcohol, gambling, porn, gaming, sex, or work.

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterised by persistent patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. It’s often identified in childhood but can continue into adulthood. Symptoms include difficulty focusing, hyperactivity, and impulsive behaviour.

Anxiety

Anxiety includes conditions such as Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Agoraphobia, and Panic Disorder. It is characterised by excessive, prolonged worry and fear about everyday situations. Individuals with anxiety may experience fast heart rate, rapid breathing, and feelings of impending doom.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is characterised by episodes of mania and depression. During manic phases, individuals may experience increased energy, euphoria, and impulsivity. Conversely, depressive episodes can bring about persistent sadness, low energy, and loss of interest in previously enjoyed activities.

Depression

Depression encompasses conditions such as general depression, postpartum depression in new mothers, and Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). It typically manifests as a persistent low mood, loss of interest in enjoyable activities, sleep disturbances, changes in appetite, and feelings of worthlessness or guilt.

Eating Disorders

Eating disorders, including Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge-Eating, involve preoccupation with food, body weight, and shape. Individuals may restrict food intake, binge eat, or engage in inappropriate compensatory behaviors like forced vomiting. These disorders often involve negative self-perception and emotional distress, and can have severe implications for physical health .

Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

OCD is characterised by persistent, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviors or mental acts (compulsions). Individuals with OCD may engage in ritualistic behaviours, such as excessive handwashing or checking things repeatedly, driven by anxiety. The cycle of obsessions and compulsions can significantly interfere with a person’s daily activities and social relationships.

Psychological Trauma

Trauma encompasses severe emotional distress following adverse experiences. It includes conditions like Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), stemming from a single traumatic event, Complex PTSD, arising from prolonged, repeated trauma, and prolonged grief, where individuals experience extended periods of mourning that impede their daily functioning.
