If you suffer from panic attacks, have days when you feel too depressed to get out of bed, or are struggling with substance abuse, you’re not alone. Millions struggle with mental, emotional, and behavioral issues every year.
While most people understand the importance of taking care of their mental health, it can be difficult to make it a priority. There’s always something more pressing to take care of — work responsibilities, errands, a sick family member, and the list goes on and on. But neglecting your mental health can lead to self-destructive behaviors, substance abuse, missed opportunities, and troubled relationships.
Suffering from a mental or emotional disorder can be incredibly isolating but you are not alone. The psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, therapists, and other mental health professionals at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Elmhurst are here to help. Our licensed providers have the experience and training to help you straighten out your issues and get control of your life again.
Reasons to Speak with a Mental Health Professional
People speak with licensed psychotherapists and counselors for all kinds of reasons. You may be suffering from a crisis or you may be experiencing less severe symptoms over a longer period of time. You may be struggling to deal with a major life transition or your family may be grieving the loss of a loved one.
Here are some other reasons people commonly seek out help from a mental health professional:
- Eating disorders
- LGBTQ+ issues
- Relationship problems
- Sexual abuse/issues
- Sleep problems
- Personality disorders
- Family issues
- Career or financial issues
- Thoughts of suicide or self-harm
If you’ve been experiencing issues like these, you don’t need to face them on your own. Our psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, life coaches, social workers, and other staff members are here to offer support and treatment at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Elmhurst.
Should I Talk to a Licensed Psychiatrist?
Psychiatrists are medical doctors, which makes them different from other mental health professionals. They have the medical background necessary to run a comprehensive assessment of your symptoms, make an accurate diagnosis, and administer the full range of treatment options. Treatment may include talk therapy, medication, self-care recommendations, and psychosocial interventions.
If medication is right for your situation, your psychiatrist can prescribe it directly and monitor for side effects while providing valuable medication management services along the way. If talk therapy is necessary, your psychiatrist may either provide those services directly or collaborate with another Thriveworks staff member to get you the help you need.
