When facing a major life change, like a breakup, a move, a new job or the loss of a loved one, it is normal to feel a little off balance. But if you find yourself still feeling down after a couple of months and unable to find ways to cope you may have developed an adjustment disorder. Sometimes called “situational depression” an individual with an adjustment disorder often has many of the symptoms common to depression, such as worry, crying, sadness, feeling hopeless and overwhelmed, anxiety, fatigue, or insomnia.
Adjustment disorders are very common and can affect anyone at any age. Unlike depression, an adjustment disorder is generally temporary and typically goes away once the individual is able to find ways to manage the situation. Consequently, treatment from a mental health professional for adjustment disorders is usually only needed for a short period of time.
