How personal disorders affect Mental Health

It has become more obvious by each day that the United States is going to have to take some large legal steps to properly treat the enormous amount of individuals with untreated psychological health disorders.

shutterstock_174741554Within the last 30 years, psychiatric hospitals have closed down in a certain domino effect and hospital facilities for psychiatric clients are becoming substantially few.  Sadly, individuals with psychological health disorders are on the streets and several of them are in prison.  It is approximated that 50 percent of U.S. prison inmates struggle from a mental health issue.

Obamacare created implementations to improve and make more available and affordable psychological health care, but for those who need inpatient care, there hasn’t been any changes.  In every year, an estimated 42.5 million U.S. adults, or 18.2 percent of the total adult population in the U.S., actually suffer from some type of mental disorder.  With continual conditions such as depression, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia, only approximately half of those affected get treatment.

Various Mental Health Disorders

Anxiety Disorders

Individuals with anxiety issues react to specific objects or circumstances with fear or dread, followed by physical effects of anxiety or panic, such as an elevated heart rate and sweating. An anxiety disorder is determined if the individual’s acknowledgement is not appropriate to the circumstance, if the person can’t manage the reaction or if the anxiety interrupts with regular functioning. Anxiety disorders involve typical anxiety disorder, community anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and certain phobias.

Mood Disorders

These disorders, also called emotional disorders, include continual feelings of sorrow, times of feeling exceedingly happy, or instability from extreme joy to extreme sadness. The most general mood disorders are depression, bipolar disorder, and cyclothymic disorder, which is comparable to bipolar disorder but with not as many symptoms.

Psychotic Disorders

Psychotic disorders include askewed discernment and thought patterns.  Two of the most usual symptoms of psychotic disorders are hallucinations and illusions.  Hallucinations are the existence of images or sounds that are reality only to the individual, like hearing voices. Delusions are fixed or false ideas that the troubled individual welcomes as true even though there’s evidence to the contrary.  Schizophrenia is one example of a psychotic illness.

Impulse Control and Addiction Disorders

Individuals with impulsive control disorders are not able to confront yearnings or impulses to do acts that can be unhealthy to them or other people.  Pyromania, that is starting fires, kleptomania, has to do with stealing, and gambling are all examples of impulse control disorders.  A person with these disorders becomes so consumed with the objects of their addiction they will start to have disdain toward relationships and responsibilities.

Personality Disorders

These individuals with personality disorders have uncompromising personality characteristics, which bring about unhappiness to the person struggling and problems in their social relationships, careers, school and everyday functioning. Examples include obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), antisocial personality problems, and overly suspicious personality issues.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Perpetual thinking and fearfulness describes OCD, which can also accelerates the performance of repeated rituals called compulsions. An example is over washing one’s hands because of the phobia of germs.

Post-traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a situation created by a traumatic episode such as military combat, physical or sexual violation, or a natural disaster.

Seeking Treatment

Whatever the kind of mental disorder, an individual is affected by it in virtually every aspect of life. Friends and family of the individual are also affected, and considering their lives could bring about increased disorganization in the individual as a result.  It is in the greatest interest of everyone for treatment to start as early as possible, in order to alleviate effects and resume as regular a life as attainable.

Clients will interact in both personal and group therapy.   Which will then be given the opportunity to also use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and EMDR therapy, which are greatly successful and useful forms of therapy and treatment elements.  The therapist teaches how to transform the outcome of ideas so that a healthy outcome could be assessable.  There are also different therapeutic activities involved in our Brain Wellness Program including providing other therapies like, art, yoga, meditation, and exercise.

Facilities are aware of the importance of family members to a rewarding and constant rehabilitation. Family members are included in every step of the progression, with the client’s permission; when treatment is finished, the individual is provided continuing care to offer encouragement and support, which involves the family as a whole.
