1.Â Depression (F33.1)- Depression is characterized by persistent sadness and lack of motivation. Depression, also known as major depressive disorder, can cause a variety of emotional and physical challenges (SAMHSA, 2021). At times, a person may feel that life has no purpose and find it hard to perform daily tasks (SAMHSA, 2021). This is the most likely differential diagnosis as evidenced by symptoms of feeling sadness from the previous breakup, frustration, smoking cannabis and drinking alcohol.
2.Â Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)Â (F90.9)- is one of the most prevalent childhood neurodevelopmental disorders (Cabral et al., 2020). It is most commonly diagnosed in childhood but can last into adulthood if left untreated. Patients with ADHD may struggle to pay attention, control their impulsive behaviors, or engage in an excessive activity (Cabral et al., 2020). The possibility of this diagnosis is due to school inattentiveness and poor grades. However, the differential diagnosis is ruled out because he began scoring low grades after a loss of concentration due to a breakup with his lover.
3.Â Substance use disorderÂ (Â F19. 10)Â – is a mental condition that impacts both the brain and behavior of a person, resulting in that person’s inability to exercise self-control regarding the consumption of substances like alcohol, drugsÂ or medications (Kalin, 2020). Likely differential diagnosis is evidenced by the use of cannabis and alcohol consumption (Kalin, 2020). Ruled out by DSM-5 criteria.
Final Diagnosis:Â Depression
