What do mental health disorders impact?

Mental health disorders impact your behavior, thoughts, and emotions. Just like a physical illness, they can make it hard to function at work, create wedges in your relationships with family or friends, and cause tremendous stress.

Mental health issues impact people of all ages, and some of the most common include:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Eating disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Bipolar disorder

Mental health issues can also contribute to dangerous behaviors or substance abuse, so counseling and community support are an integral part of addiction treatment at MEDI Care Clinics.

What causes mental health issues?

While some disorders may have genetic or medical components, many are also impacted by environmental factors. You may be more at risk for mental health struggles if you have experienced:

  • Severe or long-term stress
  • Social isolation
  • Childhood trauma or neglect
  • Unemployment
  • Homelessness or inadequate housing
  • Alcohol or substance abuse
  • Domestic violence or abuse
  • Extreme or chronic fatigue

MEDI Care Clinics was built with the intention of making high-quality care, including mental health care, more accessible. The providers have decades of experience, so you can know you are in capable hands as you begin working to improve your mental state.

What can I expect from Psychiatric and Mental Health Care?

Dr. Diana Mummert is a board certified psychiatrist conducting psychiatric assessments for all major mental health conditions. She will formulate a diagnosis and recommend a comprehensive treatment plan, including psychotropic medications and counseling or psychotherapy. Mental health concerns are also addressed by the primary care providers who work in collaboration with Dr. Mummert.

Medication management

Medication can play a vital supporting role in improving or managing your mental health. The team may also recommend bioidentical hormone replacement therapy if you are experiencing mental fog or mood swings due to natural hormonal imbalance.

Psychotherapy or counseling

Also called talk therapy, this is a common but highly effective treatment to improve mental health. This goes beyond simply sharing your feelings — proper talk therapy can teach you skills to cope with otherwise overwhelming emotions, change your responses to typical triggers, and relearn how to relax.

Support groups

The team may help you find compatible support groups. It can be tremendously helpful to know others understand your struggles and see them walking the same road toward healthier mindsets.
