Just a note of caution:

This list is intended for use by adults only. It is not meant to replace a doctor's or licensed mental health professional's diagnosis, advice and care. Please keep in mind, that just because a person exhibits certain symptoms of a disorder, it does not necessarily mean the individual is afflicted with the disorder. (It may be confusing, but certain symptoms can be associated with any number of disorders.) Only a trained doctor or licensed mental health professional can make that diagnosis and assessment. If you have any questions regarding mental health symptoms, we suggest you contact your doctor or licensed mental health professional.

Remember, the psychiatric symptom's list is strictly intended as an educational tool and its use for any other purpose is strictly prohibited. Also, keep in mind, the symptom's list is not complete and covers mostly symptoms of adult psychiatric disorders. It is meant to give our visitors some insight into various mental health disorders.
