If you or someone you know is suffering from active mental health symptoms and are in need of immediate help, there are options. When you first think of intensive psychiatric treatment you may think of a hospital, but did you know that there is a much more comfortable alternative? Residential treatment programs can offer a high level of mental health treatment in an environment that can be more helpful in the healing process. To get started, call for a private consultation with a Treatment Specialist at (877) 967-9274
The Importance of Mental Health Treatment
Well what about our mental health? Nearly 44 million Americans, nearly 1 in 5 adults, struggle with a mental health issue in a given year. For too long individuals who suffer from a mental health disorder have chosen to ignore their symptoms in fear of the social stigma that has persistently clung to mental illness. That has to stop.
There is increasing awareness in the scientific community of the link between our physical health and our psychological health. Untreated mental illness has profound consequences to our health and wellbeing, including increased risk of heart disease, a weakened immune system, reduced lifespan, financial instability, interpersonal problems, career fallout, and legal issues.
The mind-body connection is real. To maximize overall health and well-being it is critical that mental health disorders be addressed and treated. Treatment of mental health conditions provides the needed support to both manage symptoms and process unresolved traumas or painful emotional events that may be contributing to the disorder. Treat your mental health with the same care you treat your physical health for a more fulfilling and productive life. Learn about the healing options at Mental Health Retreats.
A residential mental health retreat allows the individual to obtain a more intensive and focused treatment approach than outpatient services can provide. Contact Mental Health Hope today to plan your own individualized retreat experience at (877) 967-9274.
