Mental Health Q & A

What is a mental health disorder?

Mental health refers to the function of your brain and the way it affects your thinking, mood, and behavior. Mental health disorders occur when changes in brain function cause feelings, thoughts, and behavior patterns that create distress and interfere with your ability to function in daily life and personal relationships. 

The experienced professionals at Insight Health and Wellness provide treatment for a variety of mental health disorders, such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD/ADD)
  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

If you suffer from a mental health disorder, the team at Insight Health and Wellness can help you regain control over your mood, thoughts, and behavior and restore your ability to lead a productive, fulfilled life. Mental health disorders often accompany substance abuse or addiction; the team provides specialized care for patients with a dual diagnosis.

How can I tell if I have a mental health disorder?

The symptoms of a mental health disorder vary significantly depending on the type of disorder, your life circumstances, and other factors. However, there are some symptoms that occur with several types of mental health conditions, such as:

  • Overwhelming sadness or hopelessness
  • Excessive fears or worries
  • Mood swings
  • Withdrawal from social interaction
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Inability to cope with life stress
  • Changes in libido
  • Changes in eating habits
  • Excessive irritability, anger, or hostility
  • Thoughts of harming yourself or others

Most mental health disorders don’t resolve on their own, so if you suspect you have a mental health disorder, you should see a qualified provider for an evaluation.

Treatment depends on the type of mental health condition and individual factors. The skilled providers at Insight Health and Wellness use a collaborative, holistic approach to design personalized treatment plans for mental health disorders.
