The concept of abnormality is an ambiguous one. Researchers and psychologists have been attempting to for decades to quantify and qualify "abnormal." Unfortunately, even today we are unable to concretely say what it is that abnormality is, simply because it fluctuates so much from individual to individual, from country to country, culture to culture. The following website is an outline of the symptoms, prevalence, treatment, and causes of two mental disorders: obsessive-compulsive disorder and bipolar disorder. Enjoy!
