Default Remission Vs. Response

Guys! I'm really confused about the acute phase of Psychiatric illness. It has two terms "remission" and "response". Can anyone differentiate these two in simple English.

hey man,this is how i try and remember them,if it helps.

remission - minimal Sxs (miss - mini)

response - improvement by 50% (pon - 50%)

relapse - Sxs before recovery (lap - before)

recurrence - Sxs after recovery (recur - after)

good luck.
