A mental health disorder issue involves facing an emotional challenge that may have organic components. You may suffer from a chemical imbalance with the lack or abundance of certain neurotransmitters or other chemicals in your physiology. As a result, you face difficulty with certain aspects of life. If your mental health condition has led to an addiction, reach out to Bayview Recovery today at 855.478.3650.
Common Mental Health Issues
Mental health is an important issue. If you are suffering from a mental health disorder, it is not visible, like a physical health disorder. As a result, people in this situation often hear that they should “just get over it.” Having a condition means that you can’t “just get over it.” Getting the help that you need for your mental health disorder is of utmost importance. Unfortunately, many times untreated mental health disorders can lead to alcohol and drug addiction.
- Depression disorder is one of the most common mental health disorders. Experts agree that it includes a low mood and a loss of interest and enjoyment in normal things and experiences.
- An anxiety disorder may include excessive apprehension and worry. While these are common feelings, the person with an anxiety disorder cannot control them. As a result, it interferes with their daily living activities.
- Panic disorder is characterized by having panic attacks, which are triggered differently for each individual. Panic attack symptoms include shortness of breath or feeling that you are losing consciousness.
- PTSD comes about as a response to a traumatizing event. Unfortunately, those with PTSD often re-experience the event as a part of the symptoms.
- OCD or Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is a mental health disorder that is characterized by having compulsive (never-ending, repetitive) behaviors. These behaviors invade your thoughts and actions continually.
Treatment For Common Mental Health Disorders
Treatment for common mental health disorders includes various talk therapies and medication. Furthermore, in some instances, you may need to work with the psychiatrist to prescribe medication. Both therapies can work in conjunction to alleviate symptoms and bring you to a place of control and good health.
What Is Dual Diagnosis?
A dual diagnosis occurs when you have a mental health disorder along with a drug or alcohol addiction. Generally, people use alcohol and drugs to mask the symptoms of their mental health disorder. Unfortunately, this creates a cycle that leads to addiction. Determining what underlying mental health disorder you may have is vital to treating your dual diagnosis. Another unfortunate characterization of a dual diagnosis is the length of time it takes to treat. Misdiagnosis is common because of the stigma attached to mental health disorders and the addiction that hides or masks it.
