Mental Health Q & A

Which conditions can impact my mental health?

A wide variety of conditions can impact how you think, feel, or behave. Even if you’re unfamiliar with mental health conditions and their effects, you may notice a stark difference in how you think or feel compared to how you usually do or how others around you do. 


Med Cure Clinic offers mental health evaluations to detect any ongoing mental health conditions. Mental illnesses commonly co-occur, so you might get more than one diagnosis. Some common mental health conditions are:


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


It’s also common for mental health disorders like depression and anxiety to arise alongside chronic health conditions, for which you can also receive treatment at Med Cure Clinic. 

What are some signs I may need mental health care?


Med Cure Clinic encourages you to schedule an evaluation when you notice changes in how you think, feel, or function. They review your symptoms and medical history, comparing your symptoms to the diagnostic criteria for various conditions. 


Some signs you may be experiencing a mental health concern are:


  • Sleep changes
  • Appetite changes
  • Broad mood fluctuations
  • Persistent sadness or hopelessness
  • Persistent worry or fear
  • Trouble focusing


While a singular symptom on this list may not indicate a mental health condition, multiple, long-lasting symptoms are worth exploring. 

What does mental health care entail?


Med Cure Clinic takes a holistic approach to mental health care, providing you with lifestyle management alongside clinical treatment. 


Psychotherapy or counseling is often a crucial part of mental health care and is available at Med Cure Clinic to help you learn coping skills and mindfulness. They can also counsel you about your lifestyle with recommendations for exercise, smoking cessation, and other helpful tactics. 


While medications aren’t always a necessary part of mental health treatment, they’re especially helpful when taken alongside some form of counseling. Med Cure Clinic may recommend medications according to your needs, including antidepressants and mood stabilizers.
