Many mental health professionals, psychologists, and other professionals focus on the negative effects of anxiety and depression, but they tend to overlook the positive benefits that they can hold for the mental health of their clients. For example, a study done by Harvard University psychiatrists showed that one in ten people would improve their symptoms by having a conversation with a mental health professional. The vast majority of clients, however, are not aware of how their mental health can benefit their life.
In fact, by simply talking to a mental health professional, two out of three people with mental health problems can start to feel better. And these people not only improve, they feel better. This is because when clients with mental health issues discuss their problems with a mental health professional, they receive the support they need to handle their problems more effectively.
The problem is that even though mental health professionals are well-known in the mental health community, many of them are not aware of this. Because mental health professionals are only trained to deal with the symptoms of mental health disorders, they often fail to see how their clients actually feel about their problems. For instance, someone with schizophrenia might have trouble even discussing their thoughts and behaviors, but these same people are very likely to be treated with medication, psychotherapy, and therapy.
The fact is that most mental health professionals aren’t trained to deal with the mental states of their clients, so instead of recognizing the mental states in the first place, they only treat the symptoms. The symptoms (such as delusions, hallucinations, or irrational thoughts) are the thing that causes them to seek treatment.
That’s not to say that people who are mentally ill should be treated like criminals. They are simply seeking help.
There are many different types of mental illness. Many people who are found to have a mental illness, and are then diagnosed as such, are not actually insane! The treatment of these patients can be quite complex. Unfortunately, it is often the case that a person’s first step in treatment is to go to the police. This may be for something as simple as failing to follow through on a prescription, or for something more serious like a murder.
The good news is that when a person is judged sane or not, they are allowed to seek help from those who have the same diagnosis. That is a great step in the right direction, but it is still far from being perfect. There are often cases of patients who have been left in a dark place for decades when they finally get a diagnosis and they find that they are in a mental health crisis.
And the problem is that even when a person is on the right medication, they may not be a good fit to be around people of all different ages. If your mother had ever tried to kill you, you would be likely to seek help from a trained professional. But if your mom was a drug addict, you would be in the same position as a drug addict.
Many people who have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder are still stuck in a cycle of depression and mania. At the beginning of the cycle, they are told that there is no cure for mania and that they must live in a depressed state for the rest of their life. As the mania wears off, they may find themselves thinking that they have a disease and need to be treated immediately.
But bipolar disorder is not just a disease. It can be a disease that is treatable. One of the best things about the bipolar disorder is that it doesn’t need to be seen as a disease. I know that as an individual, I can take medication and do all the things that I need to do to get through the bipolar cycle. But for a family member or friend, it is a huge burden to deal with.
