  1. Despite the fact that the concept of “nervous breakdown” is actively used in everyday life, there is no such diagnosis in official classifications of disorders.

    This suggests that under this definition in the speech of non-specialists fall a variety of conditions caused by countless reasons. Any acute reaction to stress, most often affecting a person's performance, can be called a “nervous breakdown”.

    For example, the loss of a job or the destruction of a meaningful relationship will naturally lead to vivid emotional reactions. Or in a situation of long-term suppression of feelings, at some point there is an explosion of hysteria. But in the first case, it is more correct to call it a state of crisis, and in the second-a symptom of a neurotic disorder. In accordance with this, further psychotherapeutic effects, of course, will be different, although both are often defined by others in the same way – “nervous breakdown”.

  2. It occurs as a result of prolonged suppression of emotions, non-expression of feelings. Psychic energy stagnates like a lump, and at some point, with minimal external influence, it is spontaneously released.
