Mental Health Disorder Treatment
Mental Health Disorders
Mental health disorders are more common than many people realize and, like any physical disease or condition, require treatment in order for an individual to gain continuous wellbeing. Despite the term “mental” health disorder, a mental illness impacts not only one’s mental wellbeing but also has physical, behavioral, and emotional effects. According to the 2014 National Survey on Drug Use and Health Data, 18% of adults in America have some form of mental illness. That’s an astounding 43 million adults. Freeman Recovery Center in Dickson, TN helps men and women suffering from mental illness to treat and manage conditions for lasting recovery.
Ending the Stigma
Having a mental health disorder does not make a person crazy. It also does not make a person weak. For example, an individual suffering serious depression does not simply lack the optimism or willpower to see the bright side of things. There are deeply rooted issues which may stem from trauma, chemical imbalance or a combination of factors. Mental illness is also more common than many know.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) found that among U.S. adults:
- 9% have a minimum of one serious episode of depression each year
- 6% have bipolar disorder
- 1% have schizophrenia
Mental illness can result from emotional trauma, chemical imbalance in the brain, physical ailments, and more.
