Diagnosis and Therapy

Innovations in the range of evidence based medications, therapy and psycho-social services such as psychiatric rehabilitation, employment, housing and peer supports have made wellness and recovery a reality for people living with mental health conditions. Research showed that in the lifetime half of the cases with mental illness begin by age 14. Treatment options for mental health conditions will vary from person to person. Even people with the same diagnosis will have different kinds of experiences, needs, goals and objectives for treatment. For example, therapy can take many forms, from learning relaxation skills to intensively reworking your thinking patterns. Psychiatrists and psychologists use specially designed assessment tools to evaluate a person for a mental illness. Millions of Americans are surviving with many types of mental health problems such as social anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, drug addiction and personality disorders. Treatment recourse includes medication and psychotherapy. A psychologist is trained in a way so as to evaluate and diagnose mental illnesses but usually treats them by counseling or behavioral therapy. Different therapies like Psychotherapy, Activity therapy, Alternative therapy and Expressive therapy are discussed in the session.
