Some people think that only people with mental illnesses have to pay attention to their mental health. But the truth is that your emotions, thoughts and attitudes affect your energy, productivity and overall health. Mental disorders are generally characterized by changes in mood, thought, and/or behavior. They can make daily activities difficult and impair a person’s ability to work, interact with family, and fulfill other major life functions. Good mental health strengthens your ability to cope with everyday hassles and more serious crises and challenges. Good mental health is essential to creating a productive and fulfilling life.
Clinical counselors do indeed talk people through problems. In many cases, though, they diagnose as well as treat mental illness. Some mental health counselors help people who have normal cognitive processes cope with difficult life events, for instance, physical illness, death of loved ones, and relationship problems or divorce.
According to the professionals at WebMD, millions of Americans live with various types of mental illness and mental health problems, such as social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, drug addiction, and personality disorders. Treatment options include medication and psychotherapy. However, therapy works best when you attend all scheduled appointments. The effectiveness of therapy depends on your active participation. It requires time, effort, and regularity.
