Info: This chapter in the ICD-10 classification includes a broad range of conditions that impact mental health and behaviour. This encompasses disorders like depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, autism, ADHD, and substance abuse disorders, among others. These disorders may affect a person's thinking, feeling, behaviour, and overall ability to function in daily life. Symptoms can vary significantly, and may be complex to diagnose due to their highly individualized nature. Treatment often involves a combination of psychotherapy (talk therapy), medication, and lifestyle changes. Understanding this category is crucial to diagnosing, treating, and studying the prevalence of mental health disorders, with an aim to support individuals in leading fulfilling lives.
