Your Mental Health is Important
Breaking the Stigma of Mental Health
For so long, people have been fearful of seeking help for mental health conditions like depression and anxiety, or pursuing services like counseling, psychiatry, or therapy. North Canyon Telebehavioral Health’s trained staff are caring and compassionate - they let each patient know that they are not the only person to feel the way they do.
Research shows that approximately 26% of adults experience mental illness, which means nearly 1 in 4, or 54 million American adults, deal with mental health concerns. The number of people impacted by mental health concerns increases significantly when you add the nearly 14 percent of adolescents who have experienced a major depressive episode.
Mental health issues are common and many people can benefit from the expertise of mental health professionals like Psychiatrists and Psychologists.
When Should I Seek Treatment?
Knowing when to seek treatment for behavioral health disorders is critical. Often times, families, spouses, or friends are the first to suspect that their loved one is challenged by feelings, behaviors, or environmental conditions that cause them to act disruptive, rebellious, or sad. This may include relationship problems with friends or family members, or challenges with work, school, sleeping, eating, substance abuse, emotional expression, development, coping, attentiveness, and responsiveness.
If you or a loved one is suffering from any of the following signs and symptoms of a behavioral health condition, we can help:
- Feeling of anxiousness
- Feeling very sad or withdrawn
- Lack of motivation for two weeks or more
- Thoughts of harming yourself
- Extreme risk-taking behaviors
- Overwhelming fear or worry
- Refusal to eat
- Significant weight loss, or weight gain
- Major mood swings
- Excessive use of alcohol or drugs
- Post-traumatic stress
- Extreme lack of concentration
- Major changes in personality or sleeping habits
No matter what you are feeling or facing, you are not alone.
