What is mental health?
Mental health describes, as the name suggests, the state of your mind and how it affects your quality of life. Mental health impacts your relationships with family and friends, your work productivity, and many other parts of life. It encompasses your behavioral, cognitive, and emotional well-being.
Your mental health affects your physical health. Poor mental health can lead to negative side effects, including drug addiction and alcohol abuse. Plus, it can affect your perception of pain and your relationship to the outside world.
What mental health conditions benefit from medical intervention?
At Valley Medical and Wellness, the doctors support you through numerous mental health conditions and help you form a long-term plan to manage your symptoms. These include issues associated with anxiety and depression. Anxiety describes a mood disorder that contributes to restlessness and nervousness. You may experience extreme stress due to excessive anxiety or even suffer panic attacks that can cause physical symptoms such as nausea, shaking, and sweating.
Depression affects your ability to operate positively within the world. You may feel sad or empty, but it’s not just a case of the “blues.” Depression causes you to lose interest in regular activities, have memory problems, can disrupt your sleep, and even lead to suicidal thoughts.
How is mental health managed?
The doctors at Valley Medical and Wellness works with you to create a comprehensive mental health support plan. You may benefit from:
Managing a mental health condition can be a life-long practice. There isn’t just one answer to mental health concerns, and no two people benefit from the exact same treatment plan.
If you’ve turned to opioids or alcohol to numb mental health issues, the doctors at Valley Medical and Wellness help you gradually ease away from addiction and dependence and find healthier ways of coping with mental distress. Addiction counseling helps you overcome any personal fears and anxiety you may be experiencing when it comes to letting go of dependence. The doctors intensively examine the causes of your addictive behavior and help you reach a level of self-understanding, which is essential for a full recovery.
