What are Psychiatric Conditions?
A psychiatric condition is a disorder which leads to mental illness and can have a dramatic impact on a patient’s mood, thinking, behavior, and overall quality of life and relationships with others. Unfortunately, the fallout of certain psychiatric conditions can lead to pain, disability, incarceration, institutionalization, and even death. Some of the most common psychiatric conditions include depression, PTSD, anxiety, schizophrenia, addiction, and personality disorders.
While the category of “psychiatric conditions” is certainly broad, each condition brings its own challenges for the patient. Fortunately, many psychiatric conditions have been identified as qualifying conditions for medical marijuana in Florida, such as anxiety, PTSD, and many others. If you or a loved one is suffering from a psychiatric condition and believe medical cannabis may be beneficial, contact a medical marijuana doctor today!
