Talking with a Mental Health Professional can help you deal with thoughts, behaviors, symptoms, stresses, goals, past experiences and other areas that can promote your recovery.
Of course, talking with a doctor or therapist about personal issues can be tough, but it can help you come to grips with problems in your life. It can also offer an emotional release and a sense of really being heard, understood and supported.
Dr. Neal Houston can help you to:
- Feel stronger in the face of challenges
- Change behaviors that hold you back
- Look at ways of thinking that affect how you feel
- Heal pains from the past
- Build relationship skills
- Figure out your goals
- Strengthen your self-confidence
- Cope with symptoms
- Handle strong emotions like fear, grief or anger
- Enhance your problem solving skills
Being told that you have a mental illness is not the end of the world, however. With help and support, you can recover and achieve your life's ambitions. Of course, you will face many challenges as you begin your treatment, but there is hope. Mental illnesses are manageable. And there are a number of things you can do for yourself after a diagnosis to cope with the news, keep up with your treatment, and support your own recovery.
Different clinicians have different orientations, or schools or thought, about how to provide these services. One common orientation is cognitive-behavioral; clinicians who use this approach provide Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
CBT helps people in treatment seek their own solutions to problems by addressing behaviors, thoughts, and feelings with systematic goal-oriented strategies. It is important to understand that even within CBT, as with other orientations, there is a great amount of variability and most clinicians borrow on strategies from many different orientations when they provide counseling or therapy. Finding the right doctor or therapist and developing a productive relationship is important for treatment to be successful. Treatment success may be more important than choosing a doctor or therapist based on a particular orientation.
"Culture is often thought of in terms of race or ethnicity, but culture also refers to other characteristics such as age, gender, geographical location, or sexual orientation and gender identity. As a Behavioral Health Care Practitioner Dr. Neal Houston can bring about positive change by understanding the cultural context of his patients and by being willing and prepared to work within that context. This means incorporating community-based values, traditions, and customs into treatment plans and individual evaluations."
- You may be reluctant to admit you need treatment. Don't let the fear of being labeled with a mental illness prevent you from seeking help. Treatment can provide relief by identifying what's wrong and reducing symptoms that interfere with your work and personal life.
If you live with mental illness, you may be struggling to find treatment, manage your medication and cope with life's challenges effectively. There is ample cause for hope. You are not alone, help is available, mental health conditions are treatable, and you can take practical steps to recover your life.
