Mood Disorders Q&A

What are mood disorders?

Mood disorders are a group of mental health conditions that affect a person’s emotional state, causing extreme feelings of sadness or elation. Types of mood disorders include:


Depression is a common and serious mood disorder that causes overwhelming feelings of sadness and despair. 

Bipolar disorder

People with bipolar disorder experience shifts in mood that fluctuate between periods of elation and depression. The abrupt and unexpected mood changes affect energy, thinking, and behavior. 

Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD)

DMDD is a mood disorder that occurs in children and teens. Children with DMDD have angry outbursts that don’t match the situation.

Does anxiety or trauma cause mood disorders?

Anxiety and trauma may contribute to the development of mood disorders. However, anxiety and trauma are their own separate mental health issues.


Anxiety is a common mood disorder symptom, causing overwhelming feelings of fear and dread. However, generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is its own mental illness and may occur before or with a mood disorder. 


Trauma is your emotional reaction to a distressing event that makes you feel unsafe and fragile. Trauma is usually tied to a life-threatening event. However, any situation that leaves you feeling overwhelmed or alone may cause trauma.

Though many recover from their trauma, some may develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), a mental illness that affects how you think and feel, making it hard to go about your usual routine.

Reveal 2 Heal Consulting Services LLC understands the connections between trauma and mental illness and provides trauma-informed care.
