Adjustment disorder is characterized by feelings of stress, anxiety, depression, fear, and even isolation. These emotions can be triggered by an event that is either expected or unexpected. In either instance, the emotional response to the actual event is unanticipated and an individual is usually unprepared for how to cope with such strong feelings. If you are struggling with sudden or recent change, reach out to a therapist or social worker for help to understand and process your thoughts, as well as learn how to manage and cope with your feelings in healthy and productive ways.
