Disorders of mood include various syndromes of depression and of mania, separately and in combination. These are ordinarily distinguished from anxiety syndromes, although the boundaries between depression and anxiety are not distinct and much overlap in symptoms exists. The term “affective disorders” is sometimes applied to depression, mania, and the anxiety disorders. Although the mood disorders are characterized as disturbances of mood, which range from profound sadness to grandiose elation, the syndromes include symptoms in cognitive, behavioral, and somatic domains as well.
