What jobs involve research for mental disorders?

I find mental disorders quite interesting, and I think researching and trying to help find cures and such would make a good occupation. Is there one like this? If so what is it? How much do they make? Thank you! <3 Please don't give me cocky or jerky comments, thanks again.

You may want to work in the Clinical Trials area of a psychiatric hospital. It would involve documenting procedures that are used, therapy/medications . Best Wishes for your future.  (+ info)

What tests are given to diagnose developmental disorders?

What tests are given to diagnose different types of developmental disorders and who does the testing?

Hi I am in the UK my daughter has just go through a full assessment. these are done by a number of different please. including a paediatric consultant physiotherapist psychologist, speech-therapist a specialist nursery teacher and a few others. I could not really tell that they was doing the tests we went to a play centre (children's development centre) for one afternoon for 5 weeks. They know how to spot things that you would never have thought about. like who a child draws a picture, how they play with toys weather they use their imagination. with the speech therapist its more what they understand. so they play games like put the banana next to the cup then in the cup and under the cup etc etc. they also used a book that she had to pick out the right picture to what the women was asking. hope that this all helps. If you have a child that's going through all of this please don't worry to much they don't notice whats going on to them its just a game. take care good luck  (+ info)

How common are thyroid and other metabolism slowing disorders?

I've seen these disorders listed as reasons for weight gain and inability to lose weight and wanted to know how common they truly are. I do not have any of these conditions, I'm merely curious about whether they are as common as they seem.
I should have been specific. I'm looking for statistics. Ball park will work. Do 1 in 100 folks in the US suffer from these things or is it 1 in 1000?

The prevalence of thyroid disease in the United States is 1 in 13.

Additionally, it is estimated that another 1 in 20 have undiagnosed thyroid disease.

Unfortunately, seven times as many women get thyroid disease as men, so it is nearly impossible to obtain good treatment for thyroid disease. That is, if you can even get tested and get a correct diagnosis.

One in eight women will get thyroid disease during their lifetime.  (+ info)

Exactly how many anxiety disorders can you have?

I know I have panic disorder and borderline OCD (just obsessive thoughts), but it seems I have alot of other symptoms like agoraphobia, derealization and alot of other symptoms that match alot of other disorders. I am currently on 100mg Zoloft and would like to start CBT.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy will be really good for you. And it is really a positive step that YOU would like to start it.

Also a good book to read ( if it is available in your area ) is :

"Change Your Thinking", by
Sarah Edelman PhD ( Psychology )
Published by ABC Books
ISBN 978 0 7333 1832 0

A good bookstore , if they do not stock this particular book, should be able to find a similar book of the same calibre. Don't settle for 'pop' get happy books.

I wish you well.

What should we do for a mental health/eating disorders awareness week?

My friends and I are in charge of organizing a mental health and eating disorders awareness week at our high school. We are trying to come up with ideas to get students interested and educated on the stuff we're focusing on (EDs, self harm, suicide, self-esteem, etc.)

Do you have any suggestions? We are going to have things like petitions and a No-Diet Day, as well as information on resources, but I'm looking for interactive ways to get the school engaged. Thanks!

I would have available on display, the definitions of what is depression? What is ED's? Etc. Also get questionnaires that say, for example, do I have depression? Its great that you will have resources too. But let people know, maybe by percentage wise. How many people do suffer from mental Illness and that they are not alone. That mental illness doesn't
discriminate. It can happen at any age. That it also can be hereditary. Mention that fact that name calling does hurt.
And sometimes the people who are made fun of, it can have a long term negative effect. Let people know that if they think someone may hurt themselfs or threaten suicide that it is OK to go to a peer. Maybe they may not think the person is serious, or maybe its a cry for help. Teach that we all need to get involved. That Mental Illness is real. And to the suffer it can be very devastating. That it is OK, to seek help. That seeking help is not a failure, but a step in the right direction.  (+ info)
