Adjustment Disorder

Adjustment disorder is an abnormal or excessive reaction to an identifiable life stressor. The reaction is more severe than would normally be expected and can result in significant impairment in social, occupational, or academic functioning. Most of the time people adjust to such changes within a few months. With an adjustment disorder, you continue to have emotional or behavioral reactions that can contribute to feeling anxious or depressed for a prolonged period of time. Symptoms may vary widely.
