Depression & Anxiety
Everyone encounters difficulties, and mood changes are a normal part of life. However, when your emotions seem to get in the way of your normal daily routines or you notice substantial shifts in your mood, it may be time to seek treatment. Some signs that indicate possible anxiety and/or depression include:
- Feelings of hopelessness
- Insomnia or oversleeping
- Excessive worrying
- Turning to drugs, alcohol, or habits like smoking to avoid negative thoughts or feelings
- Pulling away from the people or activities you usually enjoy
- Unexplained aches and pains
- Thoughts of self-harm
These are just some of the signs of anxiety and depression. If you’re concerned about these types of changes, it may be a good idea to work with a therapist to find solutions.
What can I do?
Most mental health disorders can be treated with either medication, talk therapy, or a combination of these two treatments. At Meridian Advanced Psychiatry, we specialize in treatments focused on medications, but also provide talk therapy when appropriate and may refer you to one of our community partners if more intensive talk therapy is required or desired. We can also review evidence surrounding alternative and complementary treatment options such as herbal supplements. Your first step is contacting our office for a new patient evaluation, where our providers will not attempt to sell you on or force you to any one treatment. Think of your first appointment as an education on your diagnosis and the most up to date evidenced-based treatment options.
