Mental Health Q & A

What is mental health?

Mental health encompasses your emotions, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors. Your mental health guides the choices you make, the direction of your life, and the way you interact with others.

At the same time, the many facets that make up your life — your childhood, life experiences, lifestyle habits, physical health, and genetics — shape your mental health.

Your Family and Internal Medicine Center provider helps you overcome mental health challenges with integrative care that considers all of the variables affecting your well-being.

When might I need mental health care?

Mental health care can guide you through major life transitions, such as separating from your partner and moving. If you feel empty, mentally exhausted, unable to get motivated, or overwhelmed, it’s time to consider talking with your provider at Family and Internal Medicine Center.

Children and adults often need help with emotional and behavioral struggles, especially when their challenges affect their success at school or work.

People with mental health disorders need therapy and sometimes medications to overcome:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

The experienced mental health providers at Family and Internal Medicine Center offer comprehensive care for these and other mental health disorders.

What signs indicate I need mental health services?

Mental health disorders cause many possible symptoms. A few examples include:

  • Staying isolated from friends and family
  • Avoiding activities you usually enjoy
  • Struggling with fatigue and low energy
  • Feeling hopeless or worthless
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Misusing alcohol or drugs
  • Experiencing mood swings
  • Having uncontrollable thoughts
  • Having flashbacks or memories of trauma
  • Feeling angry or acting aggressively
  • Being unable to control your emotions

Finding that you can’t complete tasks at home, school, or work are also indicators that you may benefit from mental health services.
