Nervous Breakdown

A nervous breakdown can be characterized by an acute psychological and emotional “downfall,” a colloquial term.

Nervous breakdown” is not a formal term but, rather, a casual term used by most people to refer to a broad range of mental disorders. This condition occurs when a patient is unproductive in society. He can’t perform his social functions anymore, and he experiences a severe form of depression. This person can also withdraw himself from reality. Frequently, it can occur subsequent to an extended period of depression or stress.
