In addition, it was concluded that the dysfunction is a dysfunction in terms of behavior, psychological or biological, and disorders that are not located solely within the relationship between man and society (Rusdi Maslim, 1998).

Classification of Mental Disorders
Classification of psychiatry involves differentiation of normal from abnormal behavior. In this case the normal and abnormal may mean that healthy and sick, but it can also be used in another sense. A number of psychiatric symptoms differ sharply from the normal and almost always indicate disease: Mental disorders are divided into two major mental disorders, if mental illness and mental disabilities. Mental disability which includes a state of intellectual deficit and have been since birth or at an early age. Mental disease implies that the previous health, developing a disorder or a disorder that manifests later in life
1. Mental illness in principle divided into psychoneurosis and psychosis. This category in accordance with the lay of the anxiety and madness. Psychoneurosis a common condition whose symptoms can be understood and emphatic. Psychosis is a disease whose symptoms can not be understood and not emphatic and clients often lose contact with reality.

Causes of Mental Disorders
The main symptoms or prominent symptoms of mental disorders contained in mental element, but perhaps the main cause of loss (somatogenic), in the social environment (sociogenic) or psychological (psychogenic), (Maramis, 1994). Usually there is no single cause, but some of the causes and the various elements that affect each other or accident occur together, then become mental disorders.
 1. Biological
For example for schizophrenia, no studies in the family DNA samples to find evidence of a defective gene, located on chromosome 5. But the research that examines family with high incidence found no evidence of a link between chromosome 5 and schizophrenia.  Schizophrenia is a group of disorders that produce similar symptoms but have different biological causes Dopamine, neurochemistry, and differences in brain structure irregularities.

Type of Mental Disorders
Mental disorders means that the prominent symptoms are the psychological from the psychic element (Maramis, 1994). Various kinds of mental disorders (Rusdi Maslim, 1998): organic mental disorders and symptomatic, schizophrenia, disturbances and disorders skizotipal supposition, feeling mood disorders, neurotic disorders, somatoform disorders, behavioral syndromes associated with physiological disturbances and physical factors, personality disorders and adulthood behavior, mental retardation, developmental disorders psychological, behavioral and emotional disorders with onset during childhood and adolescence. 

1). Schizophrenia.
Schizophrenia is a form of functional psychosis the most severe, and caused disorganization of the biggest personalities. Schizophrenia is also a form of psychosis that is often found everywhere from time immemorial. Nevertheless our knowledge about the causes and pathogenesis very less (Maramis, 1994). In severe cases, clients do not have contact with reality, so that abnormal thinking and behavior. Course of the disease will gradually towards chronicle, but can occasionally arise attacks. Rarely perfect recovery can occur spontaneously and if not treated usually end up with a damaged personality "defects".

2). Depression
Depression is a disturbance of human functions related to the natural feelings of sadness and symptoms, including changes in sleep patterns and appetite, psychomotor, concentration, fatigue, despair and helplessness, and suicidal ideas (Kaplan, 1998). Depression can also be interpreted as a form of psychological disorder in nature which is marked by feelings of depression, freedom, absence of passion, feeling useless, hopeless and so forth. Depression is a feeling of sadness and suffering associated with. Attacks can be directed at oneself or feelings of deep anger. Depression is a pathological disturbance of mood has the characteristics of a variety of feelings, attitudes and beliefs that a person living alone, pessimism, despair, lack empowerment, low self-esteem, guilt, negative expectations and fear of impending danger. Depression is sadness that resembles a normal feelings that arise as a result of certain circumstances such as death of a loved one. Instead of losing a sense of knowing someone will refuse to lose and show signs of sadness with depression (Rawlins et al., 1993). Individuals who suffer from mood feeling (mood) that depression will usually lose interest and excitement, and reduced energy leading to the state of tiredness and reduced activity. Depression is considered normal for a lot of stress and abnormal life only if he is not worth the cause and the event continues until the point where most people begin to recover. (Atkinson, 2000).

3). Anxiety
Psychic experience of anxiety as a normal and natural, ever experienced by everyone in order to spur individuals to overcome the problems facing the best, Maslim (1998). A state of a person to feel worried and afraid as a form of reaction from non-specific threats (Rawlins et al., 1993). The cause and source is usually not known or not recognized. The intensity of anxiety is distinguished from mild anxiety to severe levels. According to Sundeen (1995) identifies a range of responses into four levels of anxiety which include, mild, moderate, severe anxiety and panic. 

4). Personality Disorder

So arguably the personality disorders, and disruption nerosa the bulk of intelligence does not depend on one another or are not correlated. Classification of personality disorders: paranoid personality, affective or siklotemik personality, schizoid personality, explosive personality, anakastic or obsessive personality-compulsive, hysterical personality, asthenia personality, antisocial personality, passive aggressive personality, personality inadequate, Maslim (1998).

5). Organic Mental Disorder
Is a psychotic mental disorder or non-psychotic disorders caused by brain tissue function (Maramis, 1994). Malfunctioning of the brain tissue can be caused by physical disease of the brain primarily or mainly outside the brain. When the affected part of the brain was extensive, the basic disturbance of mental function is the same, not depending on the disease caused when only part of the brain with specific functions are impaired, then this is what determines the location of symptoms and syndrome, not a disease that causes it. The division became psychotic and not psychotic more show severe brain disorder in a particular disease rather than the division of acute and chronic.
6). Psychosomatic disorders
Is a psychological component that followed bodily dysfunction (Maramis, 1994). It often happens that neurotic developments reveal a lot or simply because malfunctioning organs controlled by the vegetative nervous system. Psychosomatic disorders can be equated with what is called the first neurosa organs. Since usually only the affected faal function, so often called psycho-physiologic disorders.

7). Mental retardation

8). Behavioral Problems In Children and Youth.
           Children with behavioral disorders who do not behave in accordance with the request, habits or norms of society (Maramis, 1994). Children with behavior disorders may cause difficulties in the care and education. Behavior disorders may come from a child or perhaps from the environment, but ultimately both of these factors affect each other. Given that the character and shape of the body as well as general personality traits that can be derived from parent to child. In brain disorders such as head trauma, encephalitis, neoplasm can cause personality changes. Environmental factors can also affect children's behavior, and often more decisive because the environment can be changed, then the behavioral disturbances so it can be affected or prevented.
