Adjustment disorder is a short-lived condition that arises when an individual struggles to cope with or adapt to a specific stressor, such as a significant life change, loss, or event. This inability to adjust can lead to feelings of anxiety or depression, suicidal thoughts, being overwhelmed by daily routines, or making reckless decisions. Essentially, adapting to change becomes challenging and leads to severe consequences.
Stressors that can trigger adjustment disorder vary by individual and may include:
- Relationship or marriage termination
- Job loss or change
- Death of a loved one
- Developing a severe illness (for oneself or a loved one)
- Being a victim of a crime
- Experiencing an accident
