A Teen Conversion Disorder is a mental illness in which teens display physical symptoms as a result of psychological stress, caused from a traumatic event. Because of this, teens will display physical symptoms for which there is no known physical cause and which teens can’t control. Because of this, Teen Conversion Disorder can understandably be difficult to diagnose, which is why it’s important that treatment providers evaluate teens thoroughly for any previous traumatic event or severe psychological stress.
The condition is named Teen Conversion Disorder because of the nature of the brain converting mental stress into physical ailments. Often, the physical symptoms displayed with Teen Conversion Disorder consist of things related to the senses, such as: ability to walk, see, hear, stand, and balance, and the condition can also present hallucinations, convulsions, urinary problems, and tremors. Teen Conversion Disorder Treatment is needed to heal and help these teens recover from this.
