"I went to the office today and was very underwhelmed by the presentation of the office. Get dirty and cluttered. MY bigger concern was the Doctor we not listening to me when I spoke. I let her know I had been on SSRI drugs before and I did not like them nor did I want to be on them. She kept repeating questions to me (while filing out her forms - I understand they are standard) never actually listening to my response focusing more on rushing me through the forms she was filling out. When the drug prozac was prescribed to me I explained I had concerns about the drug and wanted to engage in conversation about it and other possibilities she said it was that or nothing. Come back and see her in a month. I left with an issue unresolved and will now have to find another doctor. My suggestion would be try to listen to your patient and hear what they are saying about their wants and needs. Do not just try to rush me through the process to get me out of the office. Felt she was pushing whatever pharmaceutical rep was just in pushing to her."

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

Patients seeking mental health treatment have several options. The most widely used treatment is psychotherapy, also called talk therapy or simply ‘therapy’. In therapy, mental health workers guide patients as they talk about issues in their life and problem-solve ways to make positive, healthy changes. Some patients also take medication to treat mental illness. Medications are especially effective at treating the chemical imbalances behind more severe cases of depression, anxiety, and illnesses such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

Many mental illnesses are treated with a combination of both medication and therapy. For example, in substance abuse care, medications to ease withdrawal symptoms are commonly used together with a specific kind of therapy called behavior therapy, which teaches patients how to handle challenging situations without drugs or alcohol. Mental health workers may also consult with physicians or use community resources to help patients function at their best.
