Mental Health Services

Mental Health Services

If you have challenges with your mental health, you should not worry. There are many different types of mental health services that you can benefit from, and which can help you overcome your difficulties - whether these co-occur with addiction or not.

For instance, you might need help with your substance use disorder or the problem might be a serious mental illness that has been troubling you for a long time - such as bipolar disorder. The mental health services provided for these issues may be offered in different locations and different ways.

That said, mental health and substance abuse services are typically available in outpatient, residential, and inpatient settings. The exact type of service you will get will mostly depend on your particular needs and requirements.

Still, if you have a problem you can be sure that your mental health has a direct impact on your body and might trigger a variety of physical symptoms. It is for this reason that you need proper mental health to ensure your overall health and well-being. Additionally, your psychological normalcy is fundamental to addiction recovery as well as your productivity, decision-making, thinking skills, communication, learning, self-esteem, and more.

Who Needs Mental Health Services

Today, impaired mental health affects every segment of the population without discriminating. In fact, research now shows that mental disorders are serious health concerns that can be as disabling as physical illnesses like cancer and cardiovascular disease.

According to statistics, 1 in every 5 Americans is afflicted with such an illness or condition. To counter this problem, there are many different mental health treatment options and services. These services are designed to enable people with varying degrees and types of mental, emotional, and substance use disorders to lead productive lives, overcome their illnesses, and experience less pain.

Mental health services are designed to treat anyone with a psychiatric condition. These conditions, however, should only be diagnosed by experienced mental health professionals. That said, some of the common ailments that these services deal with include:

  • Alcohol or Substance Abuse and Dependence
  • Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (or PTSD)
  • Opioid Use Disorder Symptoms
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
  • Major Depressive Episode
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder
  • Eating Disorders
  • Depression
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Schizophrenia
  • Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (commonly referred to as ADHD/ADD)

Therefore, if you have any of the conditions and issues listed above, you would benefit from mental health services.

How Mental Services Work

Apart from the above, the following are some of the most common mental health, substance abuse, and behavioral services that you can benefit from:

a) Residential Behavioral and Mental Health Centers

These services are usually provided at a live in facility - which might or might not be privately owned. In most cases, you will be required to stay at the center for 30 days, sometimes longer.

Some of the centers dedicate their services and treatments to dealing with substance abuse problems and any co-occurring mental health issues while others are dedicated to dealing with mental illness.

Examples of residential mental health services include those provided at nursing homes. This is particularly because they generally offer psychiatric consultations and intensive treatment.

b) Hospital Inpatient

Many hospitals also provide inpatient mental health services, especially if you have an additional physical illness co-occurring with your mental issue or if you are acutely ill. In most cases, however, the stay might be short.

Some of the hospitals that provide these mental health services might be psychiatric hospitals, meaning that they only focus on psychological, mental health, and behavioral issues only. Others - if not all - might also provide you with substance abuse and addiction treatment services, such as detoxification and withdrawal management.

c) Partial Hospitalization

If you are very ill but you do not yet require services that are specifically provided at hospitals, you might want to consider going for partial hospitalization. This type of mental health service - which is sometimes referred to as a day program - will usually require that you attend sessions lasting longer than 6 hours a day for several days a week.

Some of the services provided through partial hospitalization include substance abuse and behavioral health services. Most of these programs are run through a facility, such as a hospital or an addiction treatment center.

You might also benefit from the educational sessions, individual counseling, and group therapy offered to patients who are partly hospitalized. All these services combined can help you regain your mental health.

d) Outpatient Mental Health Services

In some cases, your mental health services might be provided in an outpatient setting. This means that you will get to live at home - and, as such, continue attending to your daily responsibilities - while still getting treatment at the outpatient facility.

Some of the treatment are quite intensive, however, and may require that you participate on a daily basis while others might require less frequent attendance. Either way, you might benefit from the group or individual therapy as well as the medication management provided through these services.

e) Emergency Rooms

General emergency rooms and psychiatric emergency rooms in hospitals provide mental health services on an emergency basis. This means that you can benefit from attending such a facility especially if you are in acute psychiatric distress - such as if you are suicidal or psychotic.

Overall, mental health services usually cover support counseling and therapy, assistance with everyday tasks, as well as rebuilding family and personal relationships. Through these services, you can benefit from the improve health and wellness that they focus on.
