Mental Health Support
Mental health, just like physical health, is an important part of our overall state and wellbeing. When your mental health is suffering, you may find yourself unable to concentrate on even the smallest tasks or engage with those around you. Some days, just getting dressed and leaving the house may feel like a huge undertaking.
For many, talking about these issues is still a sensitive topic. It can be incredibly tough to start a conversation and ask for help. However, doing so will open up a vital channel of support and provide you with the relief you need. After all, when you are sick, you go to the doctor, so why should mental health be any different?
Our team of accomplished therapists, doctors and psychiatrists are leaders in their field, each having the ability to deliver outstanding care. Their combined goal is to help you reach your highest potential and maintain positive psychological health.
Recognising mental health
Mental illness is an umbrella term encompassing numerous disorders and their associated symptoms. Every individual experiences mental health differently with signs varying from person to person. This makes it difficult to pinpoint a problem without expert guidance, but if you are having struggles with your mental health, you may experience the following:
- Persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness
- Increased levels of anxiety and panic attacks
- Irritability and mood swings
- Difficulty focusing
- Changes to sleep patterns
- Lacking energy or motivation
- Withdrawal from social groups
- Negative thought patterns
- Changes to eating habits
If you would like to understand more about your own mental well-being, take our mental health assessment.
Supporting your mental health
While anxiety, depression and PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) may be the most common mental health disorders, and the ones we typically think about when we discuss this topic, there is actually a vast array of diagnosable mental health conditions that all affect how you think, feel and act.
Some of the mental health conditions we treat include:
- Borderline personality disorder
- Personality disorder
- Bipolar disorder
- Social anxiety
- Eating disorders
- Postnatal depression
If you think you may be presenting one or more of these conditions, or if you have already been diagnosed, we can offer you the resources you need to get your symptoms under control. We offer innovative, high-quality care in our exclusive space and can help you to start feeling more like yourself again.
The causes of poor mental health
Mental health disorders are complex and can involve an interplay of multiple factors, ranging from genetic to environmental. These conditions are also highly personal – some individuals may be deeply affected by certain situations where others will barely blink an eye. This does not mean there is anything you are doing incorrectly, as every single person sees the world through a different lens.
Some factors that may contribute towards developing a mental health issue include:
- Childhood trauma or neglect
- Genetic predisposition
- Acute stress
- Long-term physical health issues or pain
- Loneliness or isolation
- Misuse of drugs or alcohol
- Domestic violence or abuse
- Experiencing a traumatic event
- Diet and sleep quality
It is important to recognise that any combination of these factors can lead to a mental health disorder and they must be addressed in order for your wellness to reach its optimum level.
