Depressive behavior can, and overtime frequently does, elicit negative feelings (sometimes including hostility) and rejection in other people, including strangers, roommates, and spouses Coyne, (1976). Given the recurrent nature of the disorder, it is important not just to treat the acute episode, but also to protect against its return and the onset of subsequent episodes. In conclusion, depression affects the quality of life in an individual. Depression is caused by a combination of genetic, natural, environmental, and psychological factors.
Additionally, some healthcare professionals can be a major source of stigma which can have a substantially negative impact on well-being, and coping abilities of a patient dealing with addiction. Social Psychologist Valerie Earnshaw, a Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, focuses her research on the health effects of stigma, specifically how stigma delays recovery. In her article, “Drug Addiction Stigma In The Context Of Methadone Maintenance Therapy: An Investigation Into Understudied Sources Of Stigma,” she states, “For MMT patients, using drugs as a coping strategy for stigma-related stress and negative emotions may have particularly negative consequences on recovery efforts and mental health” (Earnshaw et. al, 112).
But for patients suffering with depression, it is more than just the symptoms; it can become an absence of self worth and an overwhelming feeling of loneliness despite the surprising amount of people who have it as well.

When the anxiety attack kicks in clients feel numb, shaky, and their muscles feel wobbly. During the emotional domain area, clients suffer from depression, when anxiety and depression combine it leads to the client having to take medication to balance both conditions. The cognitive domain, people with anxiety tend to have negative distortions on the way they look at themselves and the world they live in.

According to research, African Americans tend to have more shameful attitudes towards individuals with mental illness compared to European Americans (Ward et al, 2009; Poussaint & Alexander, 2000). Within African American culture, admitting one has mental illness is sometimes viewed as a personal weakness or lack of faith (Ward et al 2009; Boyd-Franklin, 2003). This perceived stigma often deters African Americans from discussing their mental health concerns with family and professionals. For Black women in particular, the issue of stereotype has been an overlapping factor affecting the use of services for mental illness. Sexual objectification can be linked to mental health problems among African American women.
In this report I am going to assess ways in which different types of dementia affect an individual and also the individual’s family and friends.

Baldura came up with the social cognitive theory which he believed that it was not an event itself that influenced a person but how they reacted to it that helped shape their personality.

Dysfunctional behavior is unhealthy and engulfs depressive, phobia, and aggressive behaviors. Depression is a form of chronic misery.
Mental illnesses are often ignored and overlooked. Determining what kind of mental illnesses there are and what differentiates them can be difficult and hard to understand. Depression and PTSD are a couple of the most common types of mental illness that remain hidden. They can be detrimental to one 's everyday life and they may not even know why or what is happening. How does one know if they have depression or PTSD?

This cynical view of schizophrenia continued into the contemporary diagnostic classifications. As recently as DSM-III (APA, 1980), the depiction of the patient with schizophrenia was particularly despairing: “A complete return to pre-morbid functioning is unusual – so rare, in fact, that some clinicians would question the diagnosis. However, there is always the possibility of full remission or recovery, although its frequency is unknown.
Patients with borderline personality disorder are characterized by their dramatic mood swings and persistent feelings of instability and insecurity. Their insecurities and sense of instability correlate to the common symptom of desperation to avoid abandonment by friends and family; the patients are often frantic in their efforts to escape perceived abandonment regardless of its practical likelihood.

Patients may have majorly distorted and unstable self-image or sense of identity; these factors can affect or result in sudden changes in moods,
