Benefits of Mental Health Care

The stigma surrounding mental health has started to lift in recent years, but people are still uncomfortable talking about it for fear of judgment. Receiving professional treatment for a mental health condition can not only benefit you psychologically, but it can help you make positive changes in many different areas of your life.

Treatment helps with:

  • Learning coping skills and strategies to manage the state of your mental health
  • Being able to identify and seek treatment for a co-occurring disorder
  • Recognizing opportunities to improve overall well-being by making lifestyle changes
  • Building a support network to count on after you leave treatment
  • Reducing your risk of relapse
  • Aftercare programs to continue to work on your recovery

Whether you’re reaching out for help for the first time or are trying a different approach, treatment can change your life.

What Mental Health Care Services Can Treat

Mental health treatment includes a variety of programming so that you receive as well-rounded a treatment experience as possible. Having a daily routine of activities, exercises, and therapy sessions keeps you on track and keeps you accountable for your own treatment experience. Each treatment plan is customized for the individual person and is designed to arm you with tools to help you manage your mental health disorder on your own once you leave treatment.

Mental health care services treat a variety of mental health disorders, including:

  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) – This disorder is triggered by a traumatic event, such as a natural disaster, sexual assault, or persistent physical abuse.
  • Depression – Depression can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics and medical conditions.
  • Anxiety disorders – These are characterized by intense fear or worry that can cause physical symptoms, such as difficulty breathing and nausea.
  • Bipolar disorder – This disorder is characterized by changes in mood and energy that can cause extreme changes in behavior.

For many, mental health conditions co-occur with substance use disorders. These conditions should be treated concurrently for the best chance at successful recovery.
