What are some common mental health issues?

Mental health is a state of emotional and mental well-being in which you have the coping skills and resiliency needed to handle stress, engage in healthy relationships with others, and make choices that align with your needs and goals.

Several factors influence mental health for better or worse. Things like your family history, life experiences, and genetic predisposition all come into play.

Some of the mental health issues you or a loved one might encounter at various stages of life include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Eating disorders
  • Disruptive behavioral disorders
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Fortunately, working with a skilled medical professional helps you build the skills needed to thrive, even if you have one or more of these conditions.

What are some signs I might benefit from mental health services?

Understanding the signs of mental health issues can help you know when it’s time to take action. Some of the indications that you might benefit from mental health support include:

  • Persistent or severe sadness
  • Feelings of worthlessness
  • Problems controlling your thoughts or impulses
  • Increased use of drugs or alcohol
  • Sleep disruption
  • Problems in relationships with others
  • Feeling out of control regarding your choices or actions
  • Repetitive, negative thoughts or beliefs

You know your body and mind better than anyone else. If you feel something is just not right, coming to explore mental health services is a great way to find a path back toward health and happiness.

What happens during mental health visits?

Mental health services center on one-on-one interactions with your provider. The process begins with a thorough exploration of your areas of concern, in addition to your personal and family health history.

If your practitioner believes an underlying health condition might be causing or contributing to your mental health challenges, you can discuss treatment options that can help. In some cases, medication offers relief for certain symptoms, but drug therapy is never the only approach.

As your provider gets to know you and your unique set of circumstances, they tailor your therapy to align with your lifestyle and needs. You begin to set goals and learn tools and techniques to work toward those goals. Your practitioner offers guidance throughout the process, celebrating your achievements and redirecting you through struggles.
