What is a "breakdown"?

Breakdown describes a severe decline in mental health characterized by an inability to function normally. It can involve intense emotional distress, difficulty thinking clearly, and problems in daily functioning. Symptoms may include overwhelming sadness, anxiety, confusion, or feeling lost. In some cases, breakdowns may show up as episodes with hallucinations or delusions. Treatment typically involves immediate help, like hospitalization or focused therapy, to support the person and address underlying mental health issues.
