Psychopharmacology is differentiated from Neuropsychopharmacology that highlights the relationship between drug made changes within the working. Psychoactive drugs relate mainly with specific receptors or target sites found in the nervous system to persuade a pervasive change of cells within the nervous system and alters the consciousness and behavioral changes in psychological or physiological functions.

Alzheimer’s Disease

Alzheimer's disease (AD), also referred to simply as Alzheimer's, is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that usually starts slowly and worsens over time. It is the cause of 60–70% of cases of dementia. The most common early symptom is difficulty in remembering recent events (short-term memory loss). As the disease advances, symptoms can include problems with language, disorientation (including easily getting lost), mood swings, loss of motivation, not managing self-care, and behavioral issues. As a person's condition declines, they often withdraw from family and society. Gradually, bodily functions are lost, ultimately leading to death.

Telepsychiatry services can be offered through intermediary companies that partner with facilities to increase care capacities, or by individual providers or provider groups. Most commonly, telepsychiatry encounters take place at medical facilities under the supervision of onsite staff, though at-home models are becoming accepted if they are in compliance with HIPAA standards.

The professional practitioner is called Psychologist and the research works carried is of great values as it covers the social issues.

Neuropsychology and Neurodegenerative Disorders

Neuropsychology concerned with the applied science of brain-behavior relationships. This field incorporates principles of assessment and intervention based upon the scientific research of human behavior as it relates to the normal and abnormal functioning of the central nervous system. Neurodegenerative diseases are incurable and debilitating conditions that result in progressive degeneration and/or death of nerve cells. This causes problems with movement (called ataxias), or mental functioning (called dementias). Assessment includes neuropsychological tests, patient history, qualitative observation, neuroimaging, and diagnostic procedures.

Emotional wellness is not recently the nonattendance of mental issue. It is characterized as a condition of prosperity in which each individual understands his or her own potential, can adapt to the typical worries of life, can work gainfully and productively, and can make a commitment to her or his group. Emotional well-being impacts every single one of us. We have emotional well-being, similarly as we have physical wellbeing. Individuals living with an emotional well-being issue or condition can encounter positive psychological well-being, and an individual may encounter poor emotional wellness without a psychological wellness condition.

Women and Mental Health

Depression, anxiety, psychological distress, sexual violence, domestic violence and escalating rates of substance use affect women than men across different countries and different settings. Pressures created by their multiple roles, gender discrimination and associated factors of poverty, hunger, malnutrition, overwork, domestic violence, and sexual abuse, combine to account for women's poor mental health. When women dare to disclose their problems, many health workers tend to have gender biases which lead them to either over-treat or under-treat women.

Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia

Bipolar disorder and schizophrenia are severe mental illnesses commonly referred to as psychotic disorders, meaning symptoms can include psychosis—impaired thoughts and emotions severe enough to induce a disconnect from reality. Bipolar disorder causes severe shifts in mood, ranging from depressive lows to manic highs. Schizophrenia is a chronic and severe mental health disorder that affects how a person thinks feels, and behaves. People with schizophrenia may seem like they have lost touch with reality and can experience hallucinations, delusions, and disorganized thinking.

Anxiety, Stress, and Depression

Anxiety is a feeling described by an upsetting condition of inward disturbance, frequently accompanied by nervous behavior like pacing back and forth, substantial objections, and rumination. Anxiety is the desire of future threat. Depression is a condition of low mood and antipathy for a movement that can influence any one’s thoughts, behavior, tendencies, emotions, and feeling of prosperity. Stress, a type of mental agony is a feeling of strain and pressure. Stress can build the danger for strokes, heart attacks, ulcers, and depression.

Sleep Disorders

Sleep disorders involve problems with the quality, timing and amount of sleep, which cause problems with functioning and distress during the daytime. Sleep difficulties are linked to both physical and emotional problems. Sleep problems can both contribute to or exacerbate mental health conditions and be a symptom of other mental health conditions.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health condition characterized by distressing, intrusive, obsessive thoughts and repetitive, compulsive physical or mental acts. The obsessions or compulsions cause marked distress, are time-consuming, and interfere with a person's normal function. Indications of OCD can occur in children and teenagers, with the disease usually beginning gradually and worsening with age. Symptoms of OCD can be mild or severe. Some people experience obsessive thoughts only, without engaging in compulsive behavior.

Market Analysis

Scope and Importance:

Mental Illness or psychotherapeutic conditions are classified as abnormal thoughts, feelings, and behavior, for a determined amount of time, which causes distress or emotional/physical impairment. This includes a wide range of psychological or psychiatric disorders and often requires psychiatric intervention. Conditions can be caused by either a biological origin such as genetic, chemical, and anatomical; or a psychological origin such as trauma or conflict. Extraordinary advances have been made in the treatment of mental illness. An understanding of what causes some mental health disorders has led to greater sophistication in tailoring treatment to the underlying basis of each disorder. As a result, many mental health disorders can now be treated nearly as successfully as physical disorders.

Most treatment methods for mental health disorders can be categorized as either somatic or psychotherapeutic. Somatic treatments include drug therapy and electroconvulsive therapy. Psychotherapeutic treatments include individual, group, or family and marital psychotherapy; behavior therapy techniques (such as relaxation training or exposure therapy); and hypnotherapy. Most studies suggest that for major mental health disorders, a treatment approach involving both drugs and psychotherapy is more effective than either treatment method used alone. The psychotherapeutic drug industry continues to struggle through a morass of issues that are directly or indirectly affecting competition. Some hurdles recently faced by competitors in this market include advertising restrictions, label changes, and some general negative views about mental illness treatments. However, there have been considerable strides in many areas of the market including advanced delivery techniques, increased education and awareness efforts, and improved effectiveness.

Research Analysis

Physical disorders are, compared to the general population, more prevalent in people with severe mental illness (SMI). Although this excess morbidity and mortality is largely due to modifiable lifestyle risk factors, the screening and assessment of physical health aspects remain poor, even in developed countries. Moreover, a specific patient, provider, treatment and system factors act as barriers to the recognition and to the management of physical diseases in people with SMI. Psychiatrists can play a pivotal role in the improvement of the physical health of these patients by expanding their task from clinical psychiatric care to the monitoring and treatment of crucial physical parameters. At a system level, actions are not easy to realize, especially for developing countries. However, at an individual level, even simple and very basic monitoring and treatment actions, undertaken by the treating clinician, can already improve the problem of suboptimal medical care in this population. Adhering to monitoring and treatment guidelines will result in a substantial enhancement of physical health outcomes.

Furthermore, psychiatrists can help educate and motivate people with SMI to address their suboptimal lifestyle, including smoking, unhealthy diet and lack of exercise. The adoption of the recommendations presented in this paper across healthcare systems throughout the world will contribute to a significant improvement in the medical and related psychiatric health outcomes of patients with SMI.
