We all experience dissociation many times in our lifetime. Sometimes it is good, and when it is uncontrolled, it becomes a mental health issue.
The conditions that cause dissociation can affect memory, identity, mental health, personality, physical health, or behavior.
Dissociation is a mental health term used to describe a state of mind in which a person separates from their thoughts, feelings, sensations, and memories.
It can be a helpful coping mechanism during stress or difficult situations, but it can also lead to feelings of numbness, detachment, and estrangement from reality.
