When should I schedule a mental health screening?
You should schedule a diagnostic mental health evaluation at Lakepointe Primary Care if you have symptoms of depression or anxiety.
Symptoms of mental health disorders include:
Depression causes persistent sadness, worthlessness, and hopelessness. These symptoms interfere with your ability to work and meet your responsibilities. You might also have recurring thoughts of harming or killing yourself.
Anxiety is a condition where you worry excessively or feel fear or dread for no identifiable reason. You might also have recurrent thoughts that you can’t stop on your own.
The team recommends that you schedule a consultation for your children who show noticeable changes in their behavior and performance at school.
After reviewing your personal and family medical histories, the team completes a physical exam. They also discuss your lifestyle, history of trauma or abuse, and other things that contribute to mental health conditions.
How are mental health conditions treated?
To ease symptoms of anxiety or depression, the Lakepointe Primary Care team often recommends medications. Several medications relieve anxious thoughts, depression, and suicidal ideation.
In addition to medication, you’ll benefit from psychological counseling like psychotherapy (talk therapy) or cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).
The team can also suggest lifestyle changes that help you reduce stress and make it easier to manage your emotions. They can recommend a daily exercise program to improve your overall health and boost your mental clarity.
