Getting the treatment needed to overcome these conditions can dramatically enhance your well-being.
The cause of mental health disorders isn’t always known, but risks include family or personal histories of mental health disorders and certain life situations. Examples include abuse, car accidents, natural disasters, breakups, chronic diseases, substance misuse, divorce, job loss, military combat, a death in your family, and the lack of a strong social support network.
After discussing your medical history and symptoms, your LocalMD specialist determines if you’re a candidate for psychiatry services and which are best. They inquire about your mood, behavior patterns, thoughts, lifestyle habits, and emotions before tailoring your treatment plan.
Depending on your mental health condition and how severe it is, your LocalMD specialist may recommend making lifestyle changes, taking medications, undergoing psychotherapy (talk therapy), or taking advantage of combinations of treatments.
Eating nutritious foods, getting plenty of sleep, managing a healthy weight, minimizing stress, exercising regularly, and maintaining social support is also important.
You might participate in in-person or virtual therapy sessions individually, in a group, or with family. Your LocalMD provider follows up with you periodically for therapy sessions or to ensure your treatment works effectively.
