These Are The Signs

Many of our patients state their rationale to seek treatment is that they want to learn to cope better with symptoms of depression, anxiety, trauma, or attention deficit disorders. Most people seek treatment when challenged by psychoses, substance abuse, family discord, or domestic violence. If you are experiencing changes in your sleep or eating habits, have difficulty enjoying the things that you used to do, find yourself crying a lot or engaging in unhealthy habits, or have turned into drugs to cope with your symptoms, you may have a condition that is affecting your psychological state. It is our upmost duty to help you through the process of registering, receiving treatment, and discontinuing treatment.

Why Is Counseling So Important?

Mental health treatment has the potential to impact anyone who is willing to engage in it. Individuals learn to navigate difficult and complex situations and how those situations have a negative effect on their mental health. Couples learn to communicate their needs more effectively and prevent conflict before it arises. Families learn to recognize family dynamics facilitate dysfunction and develop better systems of interaction between members. Society benefits when its members are able to participate in social gatherings and work actively as functional members of the community. Overall, counseling gives patients an opportunity to explore their inner feelings, thought processes, and patterns of behavior, as well as learn new coping skills and techniques to better manage their symptoms.
“I think it’s really important to take the stigma away from mental health… My brain and my heart are really important to me. I don’t know why I wouldn’t seek help to have those things be as healthy as my teeth.”
