The Types of Mood Disorder We Treat
Moodiness and the associated symptoms develop disorders if they affect a person’s functioning at work, school, home, in social events, and other meaningful interactions. We effectively treat different types of mood disorders including:
- Atypical Depression -Atypical depression (dysthymic disorder) is a persistent depressive disorder (chronic major depression). It is a major depression with some symptoms that vary from the traditional description. In many cases, atypical depression begins in the teen years. It is defined as being in a depressed mood most of the time for two years or more (one year for adolescents and children) and having five or more of the symptoms listed below.
As mentioned, a symptom of atypical depression may be temporary improvements in mood caused by positive information or events. That differs from melancholic depression, in which positive events rarely cause mood improvement.
- Bipolar Disorder - Bipolar disorder is a mental health issue whose symptoms include extreme lows and highs in a person’s mood and energy. These abrupt shifts can negatively impact the victim’s life. Bipolar disorder can have either manic or depressive symptoms. Manic symptoms include excessive restlessness, energy, activity, racing thoughts, rapid talking, irritability, a euphoric feeling, and so on. Bipolar disorder can be further classified into Bipolar I disorder and Bipolar II disorder.
- Cyclothymic Disorder -
- Depression Induced by Substance Use or Medication -
- Depression Related to Medical Illness -
- Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder - Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder is a common mood disorder in children under 18. It is characterized by episodes of extremely violent and uncontrollable behavior.
- Major Depressive Disorder - Major depressive disorder, also called clinical or major depression, is characterized by long periods of unexplained extreme sadness, desperation, and/or fatigue that could last for at least two weeks. While certain illnesses or life events could trigger it, one could develop depression without a specific trigger. A person with a history of depression will likely experience more episodes in the future.
- Peripartum (Postpartum) Depression -
- Persistent Depressive Disorder (Dysthymia) - Persistent depressive disorder (dysthymia) is mild but an ongoing type of depression. Dysthymia is characterized by bouts of depression or irritability that could last for as long as two years.
- Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD) -
- Psychotic Depression -
- Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) - Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a depressive disorder that has a seasonal pattern. For most people, SAD symptoms start during the fall and intensify during the winter. The symptoms include a general feeling of lethargy and moodiness, which could develop into depression during the spring and early summer.
- Situational Depression -
- Treatment Resistant Depression -
- Others – other forms of mood disorders are caused by medical conditions, illnesses, medications, or drug use and abuse. For instance, persons with terminal diseases such as cancer can experience bouts of depression. Also, people with drug use disorders expose themselves to toxins which could bring about mood disorders.

Pathways Mood Disorder Treatment Methods
Our mood disorder treatment centers use various therapeutic methods that can consist of individual or group therapies or both. We combine the two. Treatment programs include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), coping practices, emotional skill-building, experiential activities, and an abundance of other treatments.
The emphasis of Phase One is practicing gratitude, recognizing desire, forming a habit of honesty, learning to take control of choices, building hope, and developing a greater understanding of the self and others.
You will have the opportunity to cultivate greater competencies in making healthy choices. You’ll also practice appropriate actions to achieve the kind of positive change in your life that is fulfilling and the sense of personal strength and emotional integrity that is most rewarding.
This phase involves self-discovery and exercising positive self-affirmation to build healthy belief structures. The objective is to develop healthier ways of thinking that are conducive to structuring your time and self-management in ways that lead to greater happiness and consistency of mood.
Finding meaning and enjoying freedom in your daily life are emphasized in Phase 2. Our focus is also on making healthy daily choices and choosing actions that lead to satisfying outcomes. These approaches help clients build habits that continue to yield positive change.
With a newly grounded healthy belief structure, you find new strength, skills, and power to control challenges and triggers. Whether you are receiving treatment in our traditional residential, in-patient, or outpatient treatment program, when you’re ready to get the help necessary to live with strong mental health.
Our evidence-based, goal-driven therapeutic mental health treatment models are designed to be tailored to specific individual needs. Ultimately, therapy is directed at greater and clearer conscious self-insights, reorganizing belief structures, and recognizing and controlling responses to triggers.
