How did this happen?
There are a number of factors affecting an individual’s mental health. One does not choose to have a mental illness, a mental illness chooses him or her. Some mental illnesses have a genetic link and may manifest between childhood years and early 30’s. Other mental conditions, such as ADD/ADHD may be evident in the pre-school years, but are often missed until adulthood after an individual has struggled throughout most of his/her life.
A mental health diagnosis can happen at any point in one’s life. No one is immune from mental illness. You see, everyone has a breaking point at which a number of significant stressors may compromise their mental health. If you are struggling to make sense of a change in mood, thoughts and behavior, you should seek an evaluation.
Have you been diagnosed with a mental illness or wondering if you’re suffering from a mental illness?
Whatever the case, the challenges of life complicated by mental illness can be devastating. Learning how to manage or recover from a mental illness is a process requiring a Therapist with knowledge and experience working with individuals in this situation. Psychotherapy, Art Therapy or Dialectical Behavior Therapy allows for a unique understanding of the challenges you face. Life can improve when you know and understand how to face and mange the illness.
