Mental Health Q & A

What is mental health?

Mental health includes several aspects of your well-being, including emotional, psychological, and social factors. Your mental health affects how you handle various situations, including managing stress, forming relationships, and making decisions.

You can experience poor mental health without having a mental illness or disorder. For example, going through a significant life change, like job loss or divorce, can negatively affect your mental health.

Similarly, you can have a mental health condition and experience periods of physical, emotional, and social wellness.

What are the common mental health conditions?

Mental health conditions, or mental illnesses, cause persistent symptoms that interfere with your life. At Aveo Wellness, Dr. Deam treats many mental health conditions, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Substance use disorders
  • Personality disorders
  • Eating disorders
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

 

Many specific types of mental health conditions fall within the more general categories in this list. For example, anxiety disorders may include social anxiety, generalized anxiety, or panic disorder.
