Mental/Behavioral Conditions

    • Anger management: Excessive anger can be a symptom of an underlying disorder and may interfere with a patient’s life and relationships. Thankfully, anger management treatment can help.
    • Anxiety: Anxiety is a natural response to stress. Anxiety disorders, however, can lead to intense, excessive worry and panic attacks.
    • Bipolar disorders: These are characterized by extreme and debilitating mood swings, switching between emotional highs (mania) and lows (depression).
    • Depression: When patients are depressed, they struggle with persistent feelings of sadness and apathy.
    • Mood disorders: There are a variety of disorders that have significant impacts on a patient’s mood, sometimes requiring medical intervention.
    • Psychosis: All types of psychosis alter the way the brain processes information, causing affected individuals to lose touch with reality.
    • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): PTSD occurs in people who have experienced trauma and causes disturbing thoughts and feelings – even long after the event.
    • Schizophrenia: This causes patients to interpret reality abnormally. It may result in hallucinations, delusions, and impaired functioning.
