What is mental health?

The caring team at DeNova takes a holistic approach to mental health. They recognize that many aspects of your life affect your mental well-being. They take time to identify all your challenges and create individualized treatment targeting your emotional, psychological, cognitive, and physical health.

Your therapist can help you navigate the full range of problems that may affect your mental health, including grief, trauma, and difficult life transitions.

DeNova provides exceptional care for all mental health disorders, from depression and anxiety to bipolar disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They also specialize in the mental health issues associated with substance use disorders.

What symptoms do mental health disorders cause?

Mental health disorders cause many possible symptoms. A few of the most common include:

  • Avoiding people and activities you usually enjoy
  • Struggling with fatigue and low energy
  • Feeling hopeless or worthless
  • Dealing with frequent stress
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Abusing alcohol and/or drugs
  • Having mood swings
  • Having unwanted and uncontrollable thoughts
  • Having flashbacks or memories of trauma
  • Feeling angry or acting aggressively
  • Being unable to control your emotions
  • Not completing tasks at home, school, or work
  • Hearing voices or seeing things that aren’t real

If you use alcohol or drugs, you may have cravings or withdrawal symptoms when you try to cut back. 

When should I seek help for my mental health?

Though many of life’s challenges are transient, they can lead to long-lasting trauma and significantly affect your mental health. Any time you can’t shake negative feelings like stress, anxiety, grief, or low self-esteem or feel like you can’t find a way forward in life, the team at DeNova can help.

Mental health disorders don’t improve on their own. If you experience symptoms (like those in the list above) that don’t improve or affect your ability to enjoy daily life, it’s time to consider therapy at DeNova.

You should also connect with the team at DeNova if you experience an acute mental health crisis. You may have an existing condition like anxiety or bipolar disorder that suddenly worsens, or you may feel aggressive or suicidal or have trouble functioning.

If you’re in crisis, DeNova may schedule a same-day appointment or connect with you through a virtual visit to provide prompt care.

Any time you have questions about or need help with your mental health, call DeNova or book an appointment online today.
