Mental Health Services for Depression & Anxiety

Mental health plays a crucial role in our ability to live happy daily lives, have relationships, and enjoy general well-being. Struggling to maintain one's mental health, on the other hand, is nothing to be embarrassed about. Anxiety and depression are common mental health illnesses that affect countless people every day.

 

Fortunately, most mental health problems are treatable. Epiphany has psychologists, psychiatrists, and therapists who provide comprehensive mental health services to help you deal with a wide range of mental health concerns. Epiphany provides a safe environment for our clients to safely overcome their struggles and learn behaviors for better management of their mental health.

Anxiety

Anxiety is our body’s natural reaction to stress and uncomfortable situations. It also warns us of potential threats ahead. We all experience anxiety from time to time, such as when starting a new school, working in a new firm, or relocating to a new location. This is characterized as "occasional anxiety," which comes and goes and is fine as long as it does not interfere with our ability to go about our daily life. 

 

Anxiety disorder, on the other hand, is a deliberate mental health illness that causes intense fear and stress, causing us to quit doing certain things and enjoying life. It can affect anyone of any age, race, or gender and requires mental health counseling services to be treated. This form of anxiety follows us around all the time and only worsens if left untreated. As a result, other anxiety disorders, such as panic disorder, phobias, social anxiety disorder (SAD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), emerge over time.

Depression

Depression is characterized by a persistent sense of lethargy, loss of pleasure in activities, and unhappiness with one's life and relationships. It causes us to lose interest in our daily tasks, social gatherings, and life in general. It is a severe mental health disorder that can continue for weeks, months, or years and has a significant impact on both our physical and mental health. 

 

Life traumas, childhood, relationships, and behavioral health all contribute to mild to severe depressive symptoms. Symptoms include sadness, unhappiness, misery, irritability, overwhelm, and disappointment, among others. Remember that a person suffering from depression may not experience all of these symptoms, but rather a subset of them. 

 

A depressed individual begins to believe that he or she is unworthy and that life is not worth living.

Fortunately, depression is treatable with a variety of strategies and therapies, and you may live your life without feeling unworthy and miserable.

Mental Treatment Options

Maintaining mental health is essential for living a good life, but it is not always easy owing to a variety of mental health illnesses. Numerous treatment options are available to help you cope with mental illnesses. Though depression and anxiety are two distinct mental health disorders, they both often require the same treatment options. 

 

The top three treatment options for mental health recovery are psychotherapy, medication, and lifestyle changes. Psychotherapy can assist people in understanding the underlying cause of their mental illness and develop appropriate coping mechanisms. Medication such as antidepressants, antipsychotics, and anxiolytic drugs alleviate symptoms to help people continue their lives without feeling anxious. 

 

Meditation, along with other lifestyle adjustments such as reducing alcohol consumption, sleeping more, and eating a nutritional diet, can significantly improve mental health. Epiphany is a successful wellness center that can help you improve your mental health by providing all of these treatment options.
