Adjustment Disorders

Adjustment disorder is a stress-related, short-term, nonpsychotic disturbance associated with impairment in some element of general functioning of patients because their emotional or behavioral response to an identifiable stressful event or change in the person’s life. The disorder usually begins within 3 months of the stressful event and should subside when the stressor resolves or the person has adapted to the change, usually within 6 months. Adjustment disorders constitute a diagnostic category that lies between health and pathology. Adjustment disorders are located on a continuum between normal stress reactions and specific psychiatric disorders. Depressed mood was the most common subtype assigned (11.6%), followed by anxious mood, mixed anxiety and depressed mood, and disturbance of conduct. According to DSM-5, a principal diagnosis of adjustment disorder is made in approximately 5-20% of individuals undergoing outpatient mental health treatment.
