Mental HealthWaukesha, WI
Mental health issues are not like colds or other conditions that go away with rest and some store-bought medicine. The reality is that mental health issues require professional care customized to each patient’s needs. Similar to other health conditions, mental health treatment needs customization to the specific patient in order to be truly effective.
People may not realize that their physical health and mental health can impact one another in both positive and negative ways. For instance, a patient with depression may not take care of him or herself as well. Other people may attempt to treat anxiety by abusing alcohol. With our mental health treatment, we can help patients find the healthy life balance they need to cope with the mental health issue.
Professional Care for Your Needs
People may not realize that certain conditions of anxiety and depression are a more common condition. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America, ADAA, states that 40 million adults over the age of 18 all struggle with various forms of an anxiety disorder. On top of that, the ADAA adds that nearly half of people struggling with depression also struggle with anxiety. Fortunately, there is treatment available for these conditions and more.
The treatment process will involve medication, therapy, or a mixture of both. We offer treatment for general mental health conditions, including:
- Bipolar disorder
- Age-related mental health issues
One factor that people may not know is that there are multiple forms of anxiety and depression conditions with varying levels of symptoms. Due to this, there is no single treatment option for everyone. Our goal is to help the patient find a treatment that works for the specific condition. There is no “cure” for mental health issues or illnesses. Rather, we can help patients find treatment methods to cope with the condition, relieve symptoms and help them to live a more balanced life.
Whenever someone is sick, one of the first steps is to determine the cause. With mental illness though, there can be multiple factors that contribute to a patient’s condition. These factors can include:
- Surrounding environment
- Substance abuse
- Stressful situations
While these are only a few of the possible causes, our treatment will help to identify any of them that are causing the patient’s condition. By helping the patient identify these causes, we can help them begin to work through the mental illness and build a healthier lifestyle. On top of that, we can also provide primary care for any other issues the patient may be having.
People who experience high levels of anxiety may find physical symptoms begin to manifest such as hair falling out and back problems. People with depression may find they are constantly feeling fatigue. We can help people to identify the symptoms and find the right treatment.
Receiving Long-Term Treatment
With our mental health treatment at Village Primary Care Providers, we want to help patients experience long-term results. In order to do that, we need to develop a treatment plan for the patient’s medical history, current condition, lifestyle, insurance and any other treatments the patient has tried in the past. With this information, we will be able to customize the treatment in the long-term.
Similar to our other treatment options available, we strive to find the most effective treatment for the patient. We will work with the patient as they begin the treatment process. We will help the patient establish various systems and methods to cope with the condition. While medication may play a role in the treatment process, medication alone is not always the answer.
By helping the patient create a long-term web of support, we can help them get the most out of treatment. Following the initial treatment, patients may even decrease the number of appointments or other techniques as time goes on and there are improvements. While the condition itself may not completely go away, we can help the patient manage symptoms.
