Understanding Mood Disorders

Learn about mood disorders

It’s not uncommon for people to use the word “mood” when describing happiness, sadness, grumpiness, and related temporary emotional states. (For example, “I had a great date last night, and I’ve been in a good mood all day!” or “Don’t ask the boss for a raise today — he’s been a bad mood ever since they took his reserved parking spot away.”)

Signs and Symptoms

Signs and symptoms of mood disorders

What are mood disorders? In mental health terms, the phrase, “mood disorder,” has a specific meaning that transcends temporary moments of joy or sorrow. In a clinical setting a mood disorder refers to persistent emotional states that have significant influence over the way a person views and interacts with the world.

When a person descends into depression or elevates into mania, they are said to have a mood disorder. Again, it is important to understand that short-term feelings of happiness, sadness, fear, worry, and other common human emotions do not signal the presence of a mood disorder. It is only when a person’s state of mind becomes so acute that it impairs their ability to think or act clearly that a mood disorder diagnosis may be called for.
