  1. Mental disorders are much more common than many of us think. Almost half of us
  2. will experience a mental disorder at some time in our lifetime. According to
  3. the main guide for clinical psychologists, the DSM-5, diagnosing mental
  4. disorders involves all four of the four D's: Disturbance, Dysfunction,
  5. Distress, and Deviance. There are many different categories of disorders but
  6. some of the major ones are those experienced in childhood. Like autism spectrum
  7. or ADHD. Mood disorders, such as anxiety disorders, depression, and bipolar
  8. disorder. Obsessive-compulsive disorders. Post-traumatic stress disorder.
  9. Dissociative disorders. Bodily-somatic disorders. Personality disorders. And,
  10. finally, the major thought disorder known as schizophrenia. Now, remember, a
  11. very important point about disorders is that there is a range from normal to
  12. dysfunctional. And everyone experiences everyday forms of these, but they're
  13. not necessarily actually disorders unless they have all four of those D's:
  14. Disturbance, Dysfunction, Distress, and Deviance.
