    00:01 So what are all the categories of psychological disorders that you can have? Well, again, this is not meant to be an exhaustive list.

    00:09 I think we just want to highlight some of the more common ones.

    00:12 And for your MCAT, again, I don’t think you need to know every single one, but you should be familiar with these.

    00:17 So things like anxiety disorders, and we’ll go through each of these in more detail, but very quickly right now, anxiety disorders, dissociative disorders, mood disorders, eating disorders, personality disorders, sleep disorders, psychotic disorders, substance-related disorders.

    00:31 So, you can see we’re covering a whole range of things being from obvious things like mood, depression, anxiety to things that might be considered a little bit more fringed like sleep or eating disorders, but the idea is there is a psychological driver behind these and they’re deviating from the typical societal norms.
