FAQ -Uncommon Disorders
The word is made of Demento+Phobia.
Demento stands for -Losing contact with reality
Phobia is an excessive irrational fear with active avoidance of a particular stimulus.
so Dementophobia is the phobia of becoming insane/crazy.
People suffering from DementoPhobia have an irrational fear to have a mental illness.
Often it is the result of acute shock or trauma by witnessing someone having a serious psychiatric illness or some irrational behaviors. e.g. someone visiting Psychiatric hospitals the first time or someone in the family develops a significant mental illness.
It has been postulated that the stigma against mental illness plays a significant role in it.
Although the content of this phobia seems to be different, it gets treated on the line of other phobias.
The mainstay of treatment is Psychotherapy (Talk Therapy) by a qualified and experienced Therapist.
Some cases may require Medications for the initial phases of treatment or for acute debilitating symptoms.
