Nervous Breakdown Treatment Overview

Nervous Breakdown is not a technical diagnosis because it is not a specific mental illness. Often, when a person experiences a mental health crisis similar to a mental or nervous breakdown, a psychologist or psychiatrist may diagnosis a mental illness that underlies the crisis. Typical diagnoses for someone who has suffered a nervous breakdown include:
