Adjustment disorders

These are characterized by distressing emotional and/or behavioral symptoms that result from an identifiable stressor.

This disorder is characterized by impulsivity as well as persistent patterns of instability in affect, self-image, and relationships.

Brief psychotic disorder

Symptoms of this disorder include temporary episodes of disorganized speech, hallucinations, delusions, and/or catatonic or grossly disorganized behaviors.


This experience includes confused thoughts, reduced understanding or awareness of one’s surroundings, and significant disturbances in cognitive functioning.

Delusional disorder

Delusions involve holding onto certain beliefs that an individual will refuse to disavow even in the face over overwhelming contradictory evidence.

Conduct disorder

People who have this disorder may engage in repetitive and persistent behaviors that infringe upon the basic rights of others or contradictory to age-appropriate societal norms.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder

OCD is characterized by persistent, recurrent, and unwanted thoughts, urges, and/or behaviors.

Oppositional defiant disorder

Individuals who have ODD will have difficulty getting along with others, and will be prone to violent outbursts, antagonizing behaviors, and a disregard for authority.

Panic Disorder

This disorder is characterized by sudden and recurrent episodes of extreme fear, racing heartbeat, sensation of choking, and similar unpleasant physical and psychological symptoms.


This involves a separation from the reality in which one exists. Symptoms of psychosis can include strange physical behaviors, disorganized thoughts, visual and/or auditory hallucinations, and delusions.

Post traumatic stress disorder

PTSD is characterized by several distressing symptoms and alterations in behavior in the aftermath of experiencing or witnessing one or more traumatic events.

Schizoaffective disorder

Individuals who have schizoaffective disorder will experience the symptoms of schizophrenia as well as symptoms of mania and/or major depression.


Symptoms such as hallucinations, delusions, disorganized speech, and catatonia can make it difficult for people with schizophrenia to interpret or interact with their environment.


This term describes several behaviors that are engaged in for the purpose of inflicting damage onto one’s own body, such as cutting or burning one’s skin, breaking one’s bones, or pulling out one’s hair.

Suicidal ideation

Any thoughts of ending one’s own life, from a brief consideration of doing so through the development of a specific plan for how, when, and were to kill oneself, fall under the description of suicidal ideation.


Painful, upsetting, or tragic events such as military combat, physical attack, sexual assault, serious illness, natural disasters, automobile accidents, and the sudden death of a loved one, fall under the category of trauma.

After my brother lost his best friend, he couldn't be his old self. After trying several types of treatment and therapy, we decided he needed more comprehensive help. San Jose was able to provide him with the help he needed. With the help of the staff, he was able to overcome his loss and has since returned home and is doing much better.
