In brief: Used for all those.

Abilify (aripiprazole) is an antipsychotic medication and is primarily indicated for schizophrenia and bipolar disorders with psychotic features.
It has also been used as an "add on" medication in major depression which does not respond to antidepressant alone. In severe anxiety disorders, it has been shown to help also.
