Mental Health Treatment Q&A

What is mental health treatment?

Mental health treatment includes many different therapies that help you overcome any issue affecting your mental, emotional, and behavioral well-being.

Though many people seek treatment for mental health disorders, the team at Whole Wellness Counseling understands that your mental health is influenced by every aspect of your life.

When creating your treatment plan, they consider variables like daily stress, lifestyle habits, social life, physical health, and work satisfaction.

These life variables affect your mental health, just as having a mental health disorder affects your success and happiness in every facet of life. Your therapist works with you to address all of your needs during your mental health treatment.

What conditions are included in mental health treatment?

The Whole Wellness Counseling team includes therapists highly qualified to help you overcome any mental health disorder, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression and mood disorders
  • Behavior problems
  • Grief and trauma
  • Schizophrenia
  • Substance abuse and addiction
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Whole Wellness Counseling offers individual and family mental health treatment for children, teens, and adults.

What signs may indicate that I need mental health treatment?

Though mental health disorders cause many possible symptoms, this list includes some of the warning signs that frequently appear:

  • Preferring to be alone
  • Avoiding activities you usually enjoy
  • Struggling with low energy and fatigue
  • Feeling sad, hopeless, or worthless
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Abusing alcohol and/or drugs
  • Experiencing mood swings
  • Destroying property
  • Having unwanted and uncontrollable thoughts
  • Having flashbacks or dreams of trauma
  • Feeling angry and/or acting aggressively
  • Being unable to control your emotions
  • Having delusions or hallucinations
  • Thinking about suicide

Delusions are thoughts or ideas you firmly believe that aren’t real. Hallucinations occur when you see, feel, hear, or smell things that aren’t really there.

When any emotional or behavioral problem occurs frequently or is severe enough to interfere with daily life, it’s time to connect with the caring therapists at Whole Wellness Counseling.

What should I expect during mental health treatment?

During your first visit, your therapist talks with you, learns about your symptoms and concerns, and completes a psychological assessment. After diagnosing your mental health disorder, they develop a treatment plan and recommend a therapeutic approach that fits your individual mental health needs.
