Psychiatry for adults deals with any mental health issues arising from 18 years to 65 years of age. This is by far the most common group of people who present to the services for mental health care. This is mostly owing to the fact that the natural onset of most mood and psychotic disorders is in late teenage and early adulthood years. Use of drugs and alcohol is at high level. Another reason maybe the social pressures and responsibilities that tend to be at the highest level at this stage of life which may serve as triggering factors as well as maintain many problems. Care during these years is crucial to maintain personal, social and financial functioning of the individual and the family.
