Mental health disorders can be difficult to understand and manage on your own. Without the assistance of a professional, it can be difficult or even impossible to make progress. Fortunately, professional mental health treatment is available and can make an enormous difference in the lives of those who suffer from mental health issues.
At New Horizons Recovery Centers, we believe that each person deserves individualized care that respects their unique needs, goals and life circumstances. We provide the highest quality of treatment for mental health disorders and substance abuse disorders in the Cincinnati area.
Introduction to Mental Health Disorders
Mental health disorders are medical conditions that cause changes in thinking, mood, or behavior. Sometimes they are caused by one-time traumatic events such as accidents or abuse; other times they result from long-term stressors like poverty or addiction. Many people who suffer from these disorders struggle with doing everyday activities and forming relationships with people around them. Common examples include anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and schizophrenia. It is important to remember that none of these issues are insurmountable – with the proper diagnosis and treatment plan you can learn to better manage your symptoms and lead a happy life.
