Mental Health Treatment Centers
Mental illness is a combination of conditions that impact behavior, thinking, and mood. A mental illness is not the result of one event, but a combination that often includes environment, genetics, and life choices.
The difference between mental struggles and mental illnesses typically involves the frequency and how these struggles impact a person’s ability to function in normal life. If an individual is struggling with daily life– attending school or work, maintaining relationships, getting out of bed– then this individual may be struggling with a mental illness. ViewPoint Center helps teens struggling with a wide array of mental health struggles.
Some specific examples of when a ViewPoint Center, a mental health treatment center might be useful:
- If an individual has met with local health professionals and therapists with increasing frequency without noticeable improvement.
- If feelings are extreme with prolonged sadness, anger, or even euphoria.
- If behaviors are impacting daily functioning. Obsessively cleaning or sleeping “the day away” are two behaviors that indicate a potential need for intervention.
- If thoughts become clouded or if an individual has specific suicidal thoughts then this might be a time to consider in-patient or outpatient mental health treatment centers.
