Comorbidity refers to two or more chronic disorders that are simultaneously present. Knowing the comorbidity of conditions can help professionals and their clients understand and evaluate their health. It is also vital to help determine the kind of treatment and/or medication a person needs. In mental health, knowing comorbid symptoms are also important because it can affect a person’s diagnosis. Comorbid disorders do not have to affect one factor of a person’s health. Some behavioral health problems, like substance abuse, can be comorbid with physical health issues.
