Mental Health Q&A

What is mental health?

Mental health describes your psychological, emotional, and social well-being. Maintaining good mental health is an essential part of your overall health and longevity.

When you have a mental health disorder, it can disrupt how you feel, think, and act. Untreated mental health issues can become progressively worse and affect your physical health, relationships, and success in life. They can also increase your risk for self-harm and suicide.

MedCare Clinics offers comprehensive mental health care services for adults and children. The team provides diagnostic evaluations and customized treatment plans for a range of mental health conditions and disorders.

When should I schedule a mental health evaluation?

You should schedule a mental health evaluation at MedCare Clinics if you aren’t able to manage symptoms of a mental disorder on your own or if your symptoms are worsening.

Mental health symptoms vary depending on the type of condition you have and can include:

  • Persistent sadness
  • Hopelessness
  • Anxiousness
  • Intrusive thoughts
  • Extreme mood swings
  • Feeling disoriented or disconnected
  • Loss of interest in hobbies and social interaction
  • Relationship conflicts
  • Hearing voices or experiencing hallucinations

The providers offer comprehensive mental health assessments to assess your needs and confirm a diagnosis. They provide customized care plans for a range of conditions, including bipolar disorder, anxiety, and depression.

Based on the nature of your condition and the severity of your symptoms, the team creates a treatment plan to help relieve persistent symptoms and improve your long-term mental health and wellness.

How are mental health conditions treated?

Many types of mental health conditions are manageable with psychological therapy and medications. The MedCare Clinics team tailors a treatment plan to manage your symptoms over the long term.

Psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), helps you recognize negative thoughts and behaviors, and the team gives you the tools to improve your quality of life. Therapy can also help you and your loved ones cope with the challenges of a mental health disorder.

Along with therapy, you may need medications to support your mental health and relieve symptoms like intrusive thoughts, anxiousness, and persistent sadness. The team provides medication management services to ensure you’re taking the right medications at the right dosage to prevent additional complications.
