Are You Struggling With Any of These Issues?

Depression

When you have depression, it’s more than feeling sad. Intense feelings of sadness and other symptoms, like losing interest in things you enjoy, may last for a while. Depression is a medical illness, not a sign of weakness. And it’s treatable.

Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal human emotion that we all experience. But when panic and anxiety symptoms escalate into anxiety attacks and panic attacks, it may be an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, and panic disorder.

Stress

Stress is what you feel when you have to handle more than you are used to. When you are stressed, your body responds as though you are in danger. It makes hormones that speed up your heart, make you breathe faster, and give you a burst of energy. This is called the fight-or-flight stress response.

Drugs and Alcohol

Addiction is a chronic, often relapsing brain disease. It causes compulsive drug seeking and use despite harmful consequences to the addicted person as well as the people around that person. The abuse of alcohol or drugs – even prescription drugs – leads to changes in the structure and function of the brain.

Sexual Issues

Sexual Issues will usually produce a significant psychological and emotional reaction in most men and women. This is often described as a pattern of anxiety and stress that can further interfere with normal sexual function.

School Adjustment

While most adolescents make the adjustment to a different school in a matter of weeks, others may feign illness, refuse to leave the house, or have nightmares and unreasonable fears.

Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are serious mental health disorders in which emotions and thinking patterns cause a person to adopt harmful eating habits, such as overeating or starving. Often, these habits are a way of coping with depression, stress or anxiety.

Pain Management

Pain management is important for ongoing pain control, especially if you suffer with long-term or chronic pain. Psychotherapy is useful in learning new coping skills to help with chronic pain.

Suicidal Ideation

Most people who seriously consider suicide do not want to die. Rather, they see suicide as a solution to a problem and a way to end their pain. People who seriously consider suicide feel hopeless, helpless, and worthless.
