Creating Pathways to Wellness Through Mental Health Treatment
We live in a society that rewards working long hours and having overbooked schedules. Everyone talks about work/life balance, but the expectations we put on ourselves at home and in the office leave us feeling exhausted and overwhelmed.
Even people who don’t have a history of depression or anxiety may suddenly feel hopeless or like their world is spinning out of control. You may experience dizziness and a tight chest before giving a presentation. Or perhaps you find yourself unable to focus on simple tasks. Feelings of extreme irritability, sadness, or panic may come out of nowhere and affect your relationships at home and work.
The stigma surrounding mental health leads many adults to mask these symptoms and continue with their daily lives. We try to hold everything together, but eventually, even the strongest of people can break. Seeking psychiatric treatment for mental health disorders is nothing to be ashamed of and is a necessary step in the path to emotional wellness.
