Many people will agree that it’s important to take care of their mental health but not everyone takes action when they actually need help. According to the World Health Organization, mental health issues affect as many as a quarter of Americans at some point in their lives. Even so, less than half seek out the help of a qualified mental health professional.
While mental health issues such as depression and anxiety are extremely prevalent, it can be difficult to discuss them, even with the people we feel the closest to. Making your mental health a priority can seem like an overwhelming challenge but many people find it essential to living a happy and fulfilling life.
Treating a mental illness should be no different than treating any physical illnesses we might experience. There is no shame in taking the first step and seeking out help when you’re struggling with a mental or emotional disorder.
If you’re faced with mental health issues, you might benefit from speaking with one of our board-certified psychiatrists. Contact us at Thriveworks Counseling in Redondo Beach, CA to schedule your first appointment today.
Would a Psychiatrist Be Able To Help Me?
Mental illnesses can impact people’s lives in many different ways. You may have dealt with mild symptoms of a mental disorder your whole life or you may be recently experiencing discrete, severe episodes.
Some people with mental health concerns are completely consumed by them and have trouble managing other day-to-day responsibilities. At the same time, others may suffer symptoms yet still be able to maintain a relationship or a career. In either case, your mental health struggles are just as valid and worthy of professional attention.
Licensed psychiatrists help individuals dealing with a wide range of problems of varying levels of severity, including:
- Anxiety disorders
- Personality disorders
- Bipolar disorder
- Suicidal thoughts
- Eating disorders
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
- Mood disorders
- Addiction and substance abuse
If you’re experiencing mental health issues that are interfering with your life, you don’t have to go it alone. Consider scheduling an appointment with our virtual psychiatrists at Thriveworks in Redondo Beach, CA.
What Does Psychiatric Treatment Involve?
A psychiatrist is a medical doctor trained to treat mental disorders. Diagnosis and treatment of mental health conditions isn’t always a simple matter, especially given the number of physical and mental factors that may be involved. Experiences in your life, genetic predispositions, and current stresses can all contribute to mental illness.
As a physician, a psychiatrist can prescribe medications for your condition as needed and monitor for any potential side effects. Your psychiatrist can also assess how your mental health may be impacting your physical health (and vice versa) and identify the treatment option that will make the most sense for you.
Many clients benefit from psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), or other forms of talk therapy. At its core, talk therapy allows clients to work through their concerns under the trained guidance of a licensed mental health professional. Your psychiatrist can provide talk therapy services directly or may work collaboratively with another mental health provider on the Thriveworks staff to provide you the best care.
