"Does the least amount possible when it comes to the patient. Not many questions asked and little attempt to solve medication problems. With me, he pretty much just gives me the meds I tell him I need. He is probably great for drug seekers. Also has never done the necessary blood work for my lithium levels. When I discovered this, I asked my PCP to do them as I trust that she will share my results with me. Basically, I just don’t trust that Dr. Levy has my best interests in mind."February 6, 2018
What is Mental Health Care?Mental health care refers to a broad group of professionals who work to keep people mentally well. Just as physical illness can cause unwanted aches and pains, mental illness can cause unwanted thoughts, behaviors, and feelings. Even people who are not dealing with a mental illness can suffer from the effects of a stressful situation and find it difficult to cope. Mental health care workers seek to improve the emotional, psychological, and social well-being of their clients, usually through therapy. There are many kinds of mental health care providers. Some examples include psychologists, psychiatrists, counselors, psychiatric nurses, substance abuse professionals, and social workers. Mental health workers treat patients at all stages of life and through many common problems, including depression, anxiety, eating disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, and several others. Some of the symptoms that occur with mental health issues and may cause a person to seek treatment include:
- Changes in eating or sleeping
- Decreased energy, fatigue
- Numbness or a lack of interest in life
- Feeling hopeless
- Recurrent, persistent thoughts
- Feeling unusually anxious, sad, angry, worried, or on edge
- An inability to care for one’s self or perform daily tasks
