MENTAL DISORDER. Mental disorders comprise a broad range of problems, with different symptoms, which are generally characterised by some combination of abnormal thoughts, emotions, behaviour and relationships with others (WHO, xxxx://xxx.xxx.xxx/topics/mental_disorders/en/index.html). A “mental disorder” is a clinically significant behavioural or psychological syndrome or pattern that occurs in an individual and that is associated with present distress or disability or with a significant increased risk of suffering, and which reflects a psychological or biological dysfunction in the individual. No definition adequately specifies precise boundaries for the concept of 'mental disorder', since different situations call for different definitions. There is no assumption that each category of mental disorder is a completely discrete entity with absolute boundaries dividing it from other mental disorders or from no mental disorder (American Psychiatric Association, 1980, 1994, 2000).
