Major Life Adjustments

Major life events or changes can create significant stress in relationships, work, school, etc. Work problems, going away to school, an illness, death of a close family member, or any number of life changes can cause stress. Most of the time, people adjust to such changes within a few months. If you have an adjustment disorder, however, you continue to have emotional or behavioral reactions that can contribute to feeling anxious or depressed. Without treatment, these symptoms can last months or even years.
