"This doctor is in the Aetna plan so I called as a potential new patient. I have called this Doctor's office 3 times. Once in June. Twice in July. Left my name, situation and phone number and never got a call back. I don't think it is acceptable for a doctor, especially in the mental health profession to not respond to a patient or a potential patient. If they didn't want to take me on as a new patient for whatever reason, a phone call back would have been the professional thing to do."August 4, 2017
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
