  • Depression

  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Eating disorders

What are the symptoms of mental health disorders?

If you have a mental health condition, you might notice some of the following symptoms:

  • Trouble sleeping
  • Ongoing anxiety
  • Constant fear or worry
  • Flashbacks
  • Nightmares
  • Being startled easily
  • Constant or severe sadness
  • Sadness paired with extreme happiness
  • Substance abuse
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • Difficulty concentrating 
  • Obsessions or compulsions 
  • Problems at work, school, or in relationships

Your symptoms could be situational and go away over time. Other times, however, help from a medical specialist is the best way to improve your mood and quality of life. 

 

What are the risk factors for mental health challenges?

Mental health challenges can happen to anyone. Family history of mental health disorders, constant stress, medical problems, hormone imbalances, and other factors boost your chance of developing a mental health challenge. Additional risk factors include traumatic life events like a death in your family, divorce, job loss, or being in an accident.

 

How does my provider assess my mental health?

To evaluate your mental health, an RPG Health expert discusses your medical history, lifestyle habits, and symptoms. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam, and may order blood tests. Your provider asks you a series of questions during a comprehensive psychiatric mental health evaluation.

 

What are holistic mental health treatments?

At RPG Health, the specialists prefer holistic, natural mental health treatments to reduce the need for medications. They offer counseling, wellness coaching, dietary supplement advice, and medically supervised weight management.

Your provider teaches you behavior-change strategies to better cope with a mental health disorder. Examples include meditation, other stress-reduction solutions, diet and exercise changes, and more. They help you break an addiction to tobacco, alcohol, or drugs.

The RPG Health providers have your best interest at heart and always give you a voice in your care. They follow up with you regularly to assess your physical and mental health and make changes to your treatment plan when necessary.
