Residential Mental Health Treatment
According to the National Alliance on Mental Health, more than 51 million U.S. adults had some mental health condition in 2019. About 5% of these people had a mental health condition that could be classified as severe.
The prevalence of mental illness varies significantly based on the demographic group, with lesbian, gay, and bisexual adults making up a significant percentage of cases. Mental health conditions are also prevalent among non-Hispanic mixed/multiracial adults, non-Hispanic white adults, and non-Hispanic American Indian or Alaska Native adults.
Anxiety disorders, major depressive disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder are American adults’ three most common mental health conditions. Because these conditions can interfere with employment, affect academic performance and increase the risk for specific health problems, seeking mental health treatment as soon as possible after a diagnosis is important.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS OF MENTAL HEALTH CONDITIONS
Although mental illnesses are closely associated with the mind, they can also cause physical symptoms in other body parts. These physical symptoms occur for two reasons. First, the symptoms of mental illness can cause the body to enter fight, flight, or freeze mode. This is a natural response to stressful or dangerous situations. During this response, adrenaline enters the bloodstream, causing the heart rate to increase. Adrenaline also causes rapid breathing, a sharpening of the senses, and increased blood flow to the organs and muscles. This can cause muscle aches, upset stomach, insomnia, and vision problems. Second, mental health disorders may make it difficult to carry out everyday activities, including exercising, preparing meals, and seeking medical care. Poor nutrition and a lack of physical activity can lead to unintentional weight loss or weight gain, digestive problems, headaches, and other physical problems. Delays in seeking medical care can also cause existing health conditions to worsen, resulting in a variety of physical symptoms.
Mental health disorders also affect a person’s behavior, primarily because mental illness affects how the brain communicates with the rest of the body. Depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other mental health problems may cause the following symptoms:
Substance abuse is also considered a mental health disorder. It’s a disorder and not a lifestyle choice because people with drug and alcohol
Other mental health diagnosis, such as depression or generalized anxiety disorder, often accompany substance use disorder. When someone has a problem with substance abuse and another mental health condition, they’re diagnosed with co-occurring disorders. Because one disorder can make the other disorder worse, it’s essential to treat both mental health issues at the same time
MENTAL HEALTH CONDITIONS REQUIRING TREATMENT
Anxiety is one of the main symptoms of generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder and phobia-related disorders. A phobia is an intense fear associated with specific objects or experiences, including flying, coming into contact with spiders or having blood drawn with a needle. Anxiety needs to be treated because it can interfere with work, school and social activities.
