Psychiatric Disorders

Each legislation or criteria have different definition of ‘psychiatric disorder’ or ‘mental disorder,’ although these terms are generally used (i.e., DSM-5*, ICD-10**).


Psychiatric disorders are, for example, Schizophrenia Spectrum, Substance-related and Addictive Disorders, Bipolar, Depressive Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Obsessive-compulsive Disorders, Feeding and Eating Disorders, Trauma- and Stressor-related Disorders, Sleep-wake Disorders, Dissociative Disorders. There are other psychiatric disorders if you take a look at DSM5 or ICD-10.

The Center for Student Counseling in Nagoya University has Medical Health Section and Student Counseling Section for students with psychiatric disorder. Psychiatrists consult and prescribe medicine, if necessary, in Mental Health Section located in Health Administration Office.
