Mental health services are the most solicited for treatment of alcohol and drug use disorder, which are often comorbid with other mental health disorders, such as major depressive disorder, bipolar disorder, or anxiety disorders.

We look for feelings of being very sad or withdrawn for more than two weeks, seriously trying to harm oneself, or making plans to do so, sudden overwhelming fear for no reason, sometimes with a racing heart or fast breathing, involvement in many fights or desire to badly hurt others, severe out-of-control behavior that can hurt oneself or others, not eating, throwing up, or using laxatives to make oneself lose weight, intense worries or fears that get in the way of daily activities, extreme difficulty concentrating or staying still that puts the person in physical danger or causes problems, repeated use of drugs or alcohol, severe mood swings that cause problems in relationships, and drastic changes in behavior or personality.

Encourage good health

We promote social and emotional competency and build resilience, help ensure a positive, safe environment, teach and reinforce positive behaviors and decision-making, encourage helping others, encourage good physical health, and help ensure access to mental health supports. In the 1960s, human theorist Abraham Maslow developed a hierarchy of needs to describe the certain basic needs that a person must have in order to be a healthy person. Which includes, but is not limited to social health, spiritual health, mental health, and emotional health. According to Maslow’s theory, a person needs to be met at each of these levels before that person can ever truly be healthy. Failure to meet one of the levels interferes with a person’s ability to address the other levels. During group, clients will be given a series of assignments to see where each client is unsuccessful to reach any of these levels. Mental health is included in behavioral health. As a result, people who have mental health issues can benefit from behavioral health principles. Sometimes, changes in behaviors by the individual, family, or even the community and changes in thinking patterns can help people better cope with their mental health conditions. Mental health, which is one area of behavioral health, can include a variety of factors, such as biology, psychological state, and habits. From childhood and adolescence through adulthood, it is important that we take the steps needed to protect and nurture our mental and behavioral wellness. Our mental health directly correlates with how we act and feel. It affects the decisions we make, and the people who we surround ourselves with.

Failure to address mental health early on, especially when problems arise early in an individual’s life, can have long-standing consequences that bleed into all areas of existence. Someone who does not adequately deal with mental health problems in adolescence, for example, may find that symptoms worsen with age, and they may struggle to hit key milestones as they grow older, such as holding down a good job and learning to manage their finances.

Mental health and behavior disorders can lead to substance abuse when people use drugs and alcohol as a way to numb or escape their symptoms. For example, a person battling post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or depression may drink alcohol every night in an attempt to sleep better and avoid unpleasant thoughts. However, long-term use of substances will often exacerbate symptoms of mental illness. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to mental health treatment. Treatment should instead be tailored to the individual. Mental health problems can vary greatly from person to person, even among those with the same mental health diagnosis. Many different types of mental health treatment options are offered on an outpatient basis. These include individual therapy, group therapy, family therapy, support groups, intensive outpatient care, partial hospitalization, psychiatric medications, and outpatient medical management.
