Mental Health

Mental illnesses are a growing health concern in the United States. Mental problems affect women and men equally, but some problems like depression and anxiety are more common in women than in men, and scientists have not been able to pinpoint the exact cause behind it. According to experts, environmental and socio-cultural factors and beliefs also affect women more than men.

Avoiding or non-availability of mental health help can have life altering consequences. When people shirk rehab for mental illness, they have a higher risk of facing other challenges, including suicide ideations, chronic physical health issues, social impediments, homelessness, incarceration, and vulnerability to trauma and victimization. As women seem to have a wider responsibility in terms of child-care and family responsibility, mental illnesses, when left untreated, can be devastating for them and their loved ones. Thus, timely treatment is important. As every woman is different, an effective treatment plan at mental health retreats for women use a combination of medication, psychotherapy and counseling sessions.

Types of Mental Health Disorders

Some of the different types of mental health disorders treated at mental health treatment centers are:

Anxiety disorders: People suffering from anxiety disorders respond to certain objects or situations with fear, and exhibit certain physical signs of anxiety or panic, including accelerated heart rate and/or sweating. Anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder and specific phobias.

Mood disorders: Also called affective disorders, mood disorders involve persistent feelings of sadness, excitement or fluctuations from extreme happiness to extreme sadness. Some of the most common mood disorders include depression, bipolar disorder and cyclothymic disorder.

Psychotic disorders: Psychotic disorders involve distorted awareness and thinking. Two common symptoms of psychotic disorders are hallucinations and delusions. One of the most common psychotic disorder is schizophrenia.

Personality disorders: Individuals suffering from personality disorders have inflexible personality traits that can lead to distress and affect their social relationships, work, school and normal life. Some of the examples of personality disorders include obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), antisocial personality disorder and paranoid personality disorder.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): This disorder is caused mostly by seeing or experiencing a terrifying or a life-threatening event, such as serious accident, personal assault or a natural disaster.

Impulse control and addiction disorders: People suffering from impulse control disorders are unable to resist urges or impulses to perform acts that could be harmful to themselves or others. People with these disorders become so involved with the objects of their addiction that they tend to neglect relationships and responsibilities. Some of the examples of impulse control disorders include pyromania (starting fires), kleptomania (stealing), gambling and gaming.

Whatever be the type of mental illness, it is best to get it treated as early as possible in licensed residential mental health facilities. An early diagnosis followed by an early treatment can help get rid of symptoms and return to a normal life.
