Do Not Suffer Alone and in Silence: Get Treatment For Mental Illness

Around one in four Americans suffer from a mental health disorder such as PTSD, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, and Depression. Like any illness, if left unmanaged the consequences are serious and can include: bad physical health through, for example, disruptive sleep patterns and poor diet; financial troubles through lost earning potential; strain on family and other relationships; and a generally poor quality of life. Mental health is as important as physical health but less than half of those suffering from a mental health disorder receive treatment.

Some of the Most Common Mental Health Disorders

ANXIETY manifests in many ways. It can be a mild worry, an irrational fear of something or a phobia, you may feel panicked in certain situations or experience a constant feeling of anxiety which has no focus but affects your everyday thinking and behavior.

DEPRESSION brings with it intrusive feelings of sadness and loss of interest which make it difficult for you to find the motivation to deal with everyday activities. Feelings of worthlessness are common. Negative thinking and struggling to deal calmly with even the smallest tasks can also be signs of major depressive disorder.

PAST TRAUMA is characterized by a traumatic event or situation is your experience of it. If you felt or feel in danger or under threat of danger you are traumatized and the effects can manifest in different ways.

BIPOLAR DISORDER is characterized by extreme mood swings that include emotional highs (mania) and lows (depression). Sleep patterns, energy level, judgment, behavior, thinking, and actions can all be affected by these extreme shifts in mood.

PTSD is generally brought about by being a part of or witnessing a trauma (war, violence etc.), exposure to trauma over a period of time (e.g. abuse) or shock, such as receiving a life-changing diagnosis (cancer, stroke etc.). Symptoms include intrusive emotional distress caused by memories, dreams or exposure to anything that triggers an association to the traumatic situation or event.
