Are there any mental disorders caused from emotional and verbal

Patient

Q: Are there any mental disorders caused from emotional and verbal abuse? I am 16 years old and recently started living with my mom full time, I've been really happy up until the past few weeks where I've gone from feeling great to just down and depressed. I mostly feel insecure and what not. Is there anything that I could possibly have?
