When you suffer from physical pain, you’re probably quick to call the appropriate doctor: your primary care doctor, your heart doctor, your dentist, or even an urgent care doctor. But what about when you suffer from mental or emotional pain? What action do you take then? Odds are, your mental or emotional suffering does not warrant a call to action as your physical suffering does.
“Emotional pain is not something that should be hidden away and never spoken about. There is truth in your pain, there is growth in your pain, but only if it’s first brought out into the open.”
Many of us don’t treat our mental health the way that we treat our physical health. The good news, though, is that this is changing. We’re becoming more aware of our mental and emotional needs and we’re actually addressing them. Take a moment to think: how is your current mental state? Are you completely happy with your life? You’ll probably think about a few things that could be better and that you want to improve, be it your work-life balance, the current state of your relationship, or your personal goals and success. With further thought, you might even notice a bigger problem, such as signs of a mental illness like anxiety.
In any case, a therapist, counselor, psychiatrist, clinical social worker, or life coach can help you address the mental and emotional needs that you discover. If you are in the Jacksonville, FL area, consider scheduling an appointment with a therapist or psychiatrist at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Jacksonville. We have found the best of the best mental health providers in the area and they are ready to walk alongside you on your mental health journey.

Should I Make an Appointment with a Psychiatrist?
It may be hard to imagine a way out if you’ve been struggling with a mental or emotional disorder. However, psychiatry counseling has provided help for countless individuals dealing with cases ranging from mild to severe.
Mental health issues often have a physical component. For example, disorders like anxiety can produce symptoms including sweating, trembling, or panic attacks. In other cases, a biological factor such as a chemical imbalance may lie at the heart of your condition.
Psychiatrists can take all of these factors into account when it comes to diagnosis and treatment. Treatment typically involves prescribed medication, talk therapy, or some combination of the two.
Are you tired of letting mental and emotional disorders interfere with your life? Our licensed psychiatrists at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Jacksonville are ready to help you get your life back on track through secure, online therapy.
