Mental Health is a term that refers to our emotional, psychological and social well-being. Mental health is important at every stage of our life, and helps us determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make life choices. Mental illnesses are disorders which affect our thinking, mood, and behavior. There are many causes of mental health disorders ranging from family genes to environmental factors, and some even from long term drug use. They can come from life experiences, such as trauma, stress or abuse, or our DNA may predispose us from birth. The good news is, no matter if the source is internal or external, treatment options are available. Mental health issues are more common in America than you might think. It is important to know that someone with a mental health issue is not alone. Over 57 million Americans suffer from one type of mental illness or another, and unfortunately only about one in three seek treatment for their illness.

Mental Health Treatment
Is a treatment program necessary for you or a loved one?
Sometimes to properly treat a mental health disorder, you have to give it the attention is needs. Occasionally visiting a psychologist may not be enough. Many people have tried this route and found that the help they receive from weekly visits or from outpatient programs just doesn’t give them the help they need to overcome the hurdles of a mental health disorder. This can lead to frustration and hopelessness, and can cause some to quit searching for help, or to give up. It’s important that you find the right facility with the right staff providing the right care and education to keep fighting the good fight. Call us today at (866) 347-8319 for help finding the right treatment program for you.
What can we expect from a treatment program?
Mental health treatment programs usually range from 30-90 days. The length of stay will be determined by the patient’s individual needs, and research shows the longer the length of stay, the better results over the long term. Treatment centers may be available locally, or require travel, and this can also depend on the facilities available and the type of treatment required by the patient. If you are attending a residential treatment facility, you can expect 24 hour care, a variety of therapy types depending on the patient’s needs and the facilities programs, as well as all the comforts of home, with meals and lodging included for the entirety of your stay. Call us now to find out more about residential treatment options.

What Else Should I Know About Mental Health Disorders?
It is important to keep in mind that there is hope, and that the majority of mental health disorders are treatable. Treatments will vary based on the disorder type and its severity. Anxiety for instance, can have a range of severities from having social anxiety when confronted with a large social gathering, to being crippled by anxiety when simply thinking about leaving the house. Depending on the severity of the condition, many people suffering from mental health issues can find the controlled environment of a residential treatment program beneficial to their recovery. Call (866) 347-8319 for more information.
There are multiple factors that can help someone cope with a mental health disorder, and inpatient facilities fulfill many of them. Proper coping and adjustment requires hope, medication and treatment, empowerment, support, education, employment or some form of meaningful activity, and some form of spirituality, whether that’s religion, or a connection to something greater than one’s self, like a community, or ideal. When someone comes out of a residential treatment facility, they will have a better mindset and be better equipped to realize their full potential, cope with the stresses of life, make meaningful contributions to their family and community, and be a productive member of society. If you or your loved one is ready to get serious about dealing with a mental health disorder, and are willing to take the next step to confront the problem and deal with it, call us today, and we’ll find the right facility within our network of recovery providers to give the best care available for you or your loved one’s individual needs.
