Mental Health Treatment Services

Mental health disorders typically manifest as changes in mood, thoughts and/or behaviors. They can make daily activities difficult and impair a person’s ability to work, interact with family and fulfill other major life functions. In severe cases, they can lead to suicidal thoughts or actual suicide. In 2015, an estimated 43.4 million (17.9%) adults ages 18 and older in the U.S. had a mental illness. Among the 43.4 million adults with mental illness, 18.6 million (43.1%) received mental health services in the past year. Treatment varies based on the type of mental illness, the existence of comorbid conditions including substance abuse and the individual needs of each client.

Common Therapeutic Approaches

Psychotherapy: Therapeutic treatment of mental illness is provided by social workers, psychologists, psychoanalysts or other trained mental health professionals. Psychotherapy explores thoughts, feelings and behaviors, with the goal of improving the overall wellbeing of the client. Types of psychotherapy include cognitive behavioral therapy, exposure therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, interpersonal therapy, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing therapy (EMDR), psychodynamic therapy and others. Psychotherapy paired with medication is often the most effective way to promote recovery in people with serious mental illness.

Medications: In some cases, medications can reduce symptoms and boost the efficacy of other treatment methods. Common types of drugs include antipsychotics, antidepressants, anti-anxiety medications and mood stabilizers. Medication may be prescribed on a short-term basis, however, in some cases, medication may be needed on a long-term or lifelong basis to control symptoms. Medications may be prescribed by primary care physicians, however, psychiatrists frequently oversee medication management, especially if the client is in psychotherapy.

Psychoeducation: This helps the client, family members and friends learn coping and problem-solving skills and how to recognize signs of relapse.

Mutual support groups: This setting provide a safe haven in which people coping with similar mental health issues express feelings and offer support to one another. Support groups can help reduce the feelings of isolation often experienced by people struggling with mental illness.

Alternative/complementary approaches: As the name indicates, these are intended to complement primary therapies. Some treatment programs incorporate yoga, exercise, meditation, Tai chi or equine-therapy.
