How Can Mental Health Services Help Me?
As we mentioned above, mental health professionals can help you address a wide range of challenges, from mental illness to relationship issues and major life transitions. Ultimately, these health care providers help you improve and sustain your mental health, which includes your emotional and psychological wellbeing. Here are a few things that affect your mental health and are often addressed in therapy:
- Lack of self-confidence
- Harmful thoughts and behaviors
- Anxiety or depression
- Unhealthy habits
- Neglect of self-care
This is far from a comprehensive list. Anything that you feel is worthy of discussion in counseling, your counselor wants to hear about. An important part of their job is to understand your unique challenges and your goals in counseling. Here’s an exclusive look at how counselors can help their clients:
- Jeffrey and Lauren have been together for 6 years now—but they haven’t been happy in recent months. Finally, Jeffrey decided it was time to end it. He thought he would thrive in his newfound independence, but instead, felt incredibly lonely. Jeffrey hoped it was just a phase that would soon pass. Unfortunately, however, his lonely feelings just got worse—which led him to take the leap and seek help from a counselor. He still struggles to adjust to life post-breakup, but his counselor has already helped him correct negative thinking patterns and actually enjoy his time to himself.
- Emily had bailed on her friends three different times now. She only made plans in the first place because it sounded like a good idea—not because she actually wanted to go. When the time came to meet her friends out or have them over, she’d shoot them a short text saying she wasn’t feeling up for it today. In fact, she wasn’t up for much lately. She went to work, but only because she had to. The rest of her time she spent in bed. Finally, her friends convinced her to talk to someone about her change in mood and behavior. Quickly, after assessing her symptoms, her counselor diagnosed her with depression and has since helped her begin managing those symptoms.
Should I Meet With an Online Psychiatrist?
If you’re dealing with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, or another mental health issue, you may benefit from speaking with a psychiatrist.
Psychiatrists are able to look at both the psychological and physical symptoms of your disorder as trained medical doctors. Psychiatrists can prescribe medication to alleviate symptoms or address other biological factors that may impact your condition. They can also administer psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), or another form of talk therapy if that is determined helpful for your situation.
Plus, you can access this kind of comprehensive treatment from the comfort of your home. Our telepsychiatry appointments are available over the phone or by live video chat for your convenience.
