Mental Health Services Q & A

Genesis New Beginning

What issues fall under mental health services?

The term “mental illness” encompasses an incredibly broad range of problems, which are impossible to list here. To touch on some of the mental health issues that Genesis New Beginning handles, the following offers a brief explanation of the more prevalent conditions:

Anxiety

Anxiety disorders, as well as panic disorders, are the most common mental health illnesses in the United States, affecting a whopping 40 million adults, which represents over 18% of the population. Anxiety and panic can have a huge impact on your ability to perform even the simplest of tasks, as they can render you paralyzed and unable to function.

Depression

In 2016, approximately 16.2 American adults reported experiencing at least one depressive episode. Depression affects each sufferer differently, but the main hallmarks of the condition include:

  • A feeling of great sadness and hopelessness
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Eating more or less than usual
  • Irritability
  • Thoughts of suicide or death

Addiction

This mental health issue is characterized by substance abuse to the point where it becomes a health and wellness liability. Release from addiction requires a multipronged effort that addresses both the mental and physical aspects of the disease.

PTSD, or post-traumatic stress disorder

If you go through a traumatic, often life-threatening event, you may experience some degree of PTSD. Long thought to be the sole domain of veterans, the mental health experts at Genesis New Beginning emphasize that any stressful event can cause PTSD. 

What types of counseling are offered?

The world of counseling is by no means reserved for mental illness. Many people undergo counseling to deal with:

  • Marital problems through couples counseling
  • Stress management
  • Anxiety
  • Family counseling

The goal at Genesis New Beginning is to help people practice better life-coping skills, whether or not any mental illness exists. In fact, family members of those who suffer from a mental illness often avail themselves of the many counseling services at Genesis New Beginning.

What types of therapy are available?

Genesis New Beginning offers many forms of therapy, including:

  • Family therapy
