Mental Health Q & A

What is mental health?

Mental health refers to your social, emotional, and psychological well-being, including your ability to communicate, process stress, and behave. A mental health concern can affect nearly every aspect of your life, from the way you act in social situations to your relationships with friends and family.

How do I know if I need mental health treatment?

Mental health concerns aren’t always obvious, even to yourself. That’s why it’s important to look out for telltale signs that you or a loved one is experiencing a mental health problem. The most common signs of mental health concerns include:


  • Feeling fatigued
  • Poor concentration
  • Feeling low or hopeless
  • Anxiety or nervousness
  • Losing your sense of control
  • Sudden sleep changes (either too much or too little)
  • Pulling away from family or friends
  • Poor performance at work or school
  • Forgetfulness
  • Changes in eating habits

Drastic changes in behavior are also a sign that you may benefit from mental health treatment with the team at Freeman Medical Clinic.

What are some different types of mental health disorders?

The team treats several types of mental health disorders, including:

Anxiety

If you have persistent feelings of worry, fear, or nervousness, anxiety may be to blame. Anxiety is a common mental health disorder that can make you feel worried or fearful about situations that typically wouldn’t garner that response. Multiple types of anxiety exist, including general and social anxiety.

Depression

Depression is a common mental health disorder that causes feelings of sadness or hopelessness. The signs may be subtle or apparent; everybody experiences depression differently. While some people experience constant feelings of sadness, others simply feel persistent fatigue.

ADHD

ADHD, or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, is a mental health condition that causes long-term difficulties with concentration, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. While many people associate ADHD with children, symptoms can last well into adulthood.
