What are the most common nervous breakdown causes?


Answer by  whizkid (95)

What we commonly call a "nervous breakdown" is not a technical term in psychology. It most often refers to a state of extreme anxiety. A panic attack that is not recognized as such will escalate as the person panics about being panicked. The personality feels dread and cannot function.

The most common (and often most overlooked) cause of a nervous breakdown is complete lack of or poor stress management skills. When one has no proper way to vent his or her stress it builds over time. Eventually this leads to an overload of stress causing the nervous breakdown.

Stress. But more indicative is the length of stress. Prolonged stress, even if relatively minor can lead to lack of restful sleep, disrtuption of meal patterns and other habits that when altered may cause compounded stress by way of adjacent stressors. This domino effect is the real danger.

Prolonged panic or numerous anxiety attacks can lead to a nervous breakdown. People dealing with significant grief, losing a long held job, failing in school, going through divorce, caring for someone with a lengthy illness could suffer a nervous breakdown without adequate support.
