Mental Health Q & A

What is mental health?

Mental health describes your emotions, thoughts, moods, and behavior patterns. Mental health conditions might negatively affect your quality of life in numerous ways when not addressed. Seeking counseling, medications, or other effective treatments can restore your mental health, physical health, and overall quality of life.

What are common mental health concerns?

Common mental health challenges include:


Depression is a condition characterized by ongoing or extreme sadness. Depression may hinder your ability to live a fulfilling life, feel happy, or be productive at work or school. It can also negatively affect interpersonal relationships. 


Anxiety disorders may cause worry, fear, or severe stress in situations that don’t affect many other people. They’re characterized by phobias, generalized anxiety, social anxiety, or even panic attacks. 

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is a common mental health condition in children, teenagers, and even adults. It’s characterized by difficulty concentrating (inattention) and sitting still (hyperactivity). Treatment helps improve focus and the quality of life.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

PTSD may occur after experiencing a traumatic life event, such as abuse, a car accident, or military combat. It can lead to flashbacks, nightmares, anxiety, and depression. 

Eating disorders

Examples of eating disorders include anorexia (eating too few calories), bulimia (binge eating followed by throwing up or excessive exercise), and binge eating disorder — a condition that involves frequent binging (overeating) and often obesity. 

Bipolar disorder

People with bipolar disorder may feel euphoric (extremely excited) one minute and very sad (depressive) the next. The condition is characterized by severe mood swings that often cause problems during everyday activities. 

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

OCD is a condition in which obsessions and compulsions negatively affect your daily life, such as a fear of germs or the need for extreme orderliness. It can cause anxiety because of compulsive thoughts and ritualistic behaviors. 

How are mental health conditions treated?

Physicians Creek Medical Center offers an array of mental health treatments. Your provider may recommend medications, ketamine infusions, or counseling with a qualified therapist. Medical marijuana is also available for people with PTSD. Your provider tailors each treatment to your needs and follows up as often as needed to ensure symptom relief.
