When you’re feeling under the weather, there’s usually one thing any doctor will recommend: Rest. Taking that time to press pause on your life can feel a little inconvenient — you might worry about getting behind on your work or not being able to take care of your family. But to live your life to the fullest, you have to take care of yourself.
When you’re not mentally healthy, the same logic applies. You may feel like because it’s not visibly affecting you, you need to push through your mental health problems. Though you may not be coughing or sneezing, mental illness can make it difficult to get out of bed, perform day-to-day tasks, and interact with others. Just like you would with any other kind of illness, it’s a good idea to stop and figure out your next steps when you notice your mental health is suffering.
The singer and actress Selena Gomez did exactly this in 2018. Her hectic schedule and demanding lifestyle left her feeling overwhelmed and lost. Knowing this wasn’t sustainable, Gomez decided to take a break from social media and started to receive mental health treatment for anxiety and depression. She reached out for help because she didn’t feel she could keep grinning and bearing it.
You don’t have to be a star in the public eye to realize you’re overworked, overwhelmed, and unable to keep up the facade that everything is okay. No matter who you are, the therapists, counselors, psychologists, and psychiatrists at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Loveland can help you understand the struggles you’re going through and find a way forward to improve your mental wellbeing.
Should I Pursue Counseling Services?
There’s a common misconception that counseling or therapy is only for people who are struggling so much that they can’t handle their mental health on their own. But the mental health services at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Loveland are for anyone interested in understanding their mental health, whether it be because they feel burdened by their thoughts or because they simply want a check-up.
Some reasons you might be interested in pursuing counseling or therapy include:
- Relationship troubles
- Difficulty sleeping or eating
- Feelings of isolation
- Anger issues
- Feeling out of control of yourself
- Persistent feelings of hopelessness
- Body image issues
- Career or life changes
- Eating disorders
- LGBTQ+ issues
- Relationship problems
- Sexual abuse/issues
If you’ve been feeling unlike yourself, you don’t have to tolerate these feelings as part of your day-to-day life. The licensed professionals at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Loveland can help you understand your issues and learn to cope with them in an effective and healthy manner.
Should I Speak With a Licensed Psychiatrist?
Though Thriveworks has many qualified mental health professionals, psychiatrists are the only ones with the ability to prescribe medication.
If you’re dealing with moderate to severe mental illness caused by biological and physical factors and exhibit physical symptoms, psychiatric counseling might be the right course of treatment for you. In addition to determining any medication you may need, psychiatrists are medical doctors who are qualified to address your situation holistically, offering psychotherapy and helping you implement other lifestyle changes.
