May is Mental Health Awareness Month and an ideal time to educate ourselves about how to take care of bodies and minds, how to seek help when needed, and live life as fully and enjoyably as we can. Mental Health is as important as our physical and spiritual health, but often neglected. It can impact aspects of our lives such as our mood, energy levels, sleep, irritability, interactions with others, and our level of enjoyment in daily hobbies and activities.
Nightmares and unwanted thoughts about past trauma could be indicators of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Seeing and hearing things which are not real (auditory or visual hallucinations) are concerning for schizophrenia or psychosis.
If you or a loved one has noticed a change in your mood or energy (lower levels concerning for depression, high levels for bipolar), please reach out for a screening. Irritability and poor interactions with our friends and family can also be an early warning sign of several different mental conditions such as depression or personality disorders. Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, helplessness or hopelessness are reasons to call Behavioral Health Solutions and schedule an intake with one of our therapists to discuss your quality of life and how we can help.
Call (702) 608-1976 anywhere in Nevada to schedule an appointment (typically same day) via telephone or video from your own home.
