Mental Health Q & A

What is mental health?

Your mental health includes thinking, mood, and behavior patterns. Mental health disorders are common in adults and children and can negatively affect the way you function at work, school, and in relationships with other people. 

Common mental health disorders include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Attention-deficit disorder (ADD)
  • Substance abuse disorder

The specialists at Integrated Premier Group Specialty can diagnose and treat these and other mental health challenges to give you a better quality of life.

What are the common symptoms of mental health disorders?

Signs and symptoms often associated with mental health disorders include:

  • Ongoing sadness
  • Fear, worry, or anxiousness
  • Mood swings
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Loss of interest
  • Obsessions and compulsions
  • Inability to pay attention or sit still
  • Drug or alcohol addictions

With a mental health disorder, you may have stomach aches, headaches, back pain, or other types of ongoing discomfort. 

What are the risk factors for mental health disorders?

About one in five adults struggle with a mental health disorder. Your risk increases with a personal or family history of mental health disorders, stressful or traumatic life events, having a chronic disease or traumatic brain injury, or being in military combat. Using drugs or alcohol also increases your risk, as does a history of childhood neglect or abuse.

How does my doctor diagnose mental health problems?

To find out if you have a mental health disorder and which kind, your Integrated Premier Group Specialty provider discusses your medical history, symptoms, and lifestyle. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, may order blood tests, and complete a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation by asking you questions.

What are common mental health disorder treatments?

Effective mental health treatments available at Integrated Premier Group Specialty include:

Lifestyle changes

Adopting healthy habits can improve your mood and mental health. Eat healthy foods, get regular exercise, avoid smoking, excessive alcohol, and drug use, get plenty of sleep, and keep stress levels low.

Medications

Taking medications can reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, OCD, ADHD, PTSD, and other mental health challenges.

Counseling

Integrated Premier Group Specialty specializes in counseling services (talk therapy) for mental health disorders. Counseling teaches you ways to better cope with your condition and life circumstances. Your provider can counsel in-office, at your home, or virtually.
