Symptoms and Treatments of Mental Disorders
The symptom lists at the above link have been culled and summarized from current diagnostic criteria most commonly used in the United States by mental health professionals. The lists are divided into three broad categories: adult, childhood, and personality disorders; some disorders may fall under more than one category. These categories are just an easy way to find a disorder, the categories themselves do not mean anything.

Remember, the lists of symptoms are not necessarily complete. Many times, differential diagnoses were left out of these lists, to keep things simple. Some of the categories listed below are not actual diagnoses, but rather parts of a diagnosis (e.g.- the descriptions of “episodes”).
