Mental Health and Wellness Q & A

What is mental health and wellness?

Mental health and wellness are all about taking care of your psychological well-being. While a great deal of attention goes on physical health problems, mental health is equally vital to your overall wellness.

Life is full of challenges, some large and some life-changing. It takes considerable courage to deal with these challenges, which the mental health and wellness services team at Lagniappe Medical Clinic understands.

They are there to support you when you feel lonely and directionless. If your emotional health is under threat or suffering because of life’s struggles, the team provides you with encouragement and assistance.

With their dedicated, expert help, you can move through the various seasons of life without being overwhelmed by mental health problems and emotional distress.

What conditions can mental health and wellness services treat?

Lagniappe Medical Clinic’s mental health and wellness services team can help you with a broad range of emotional and mental health issues, such as:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Substance abuse and addiction

All mental health and wellness services at Lagniappe Medical Clinic are entirely free of any judgment and totally confidential. You can be assured of supportive and knowledgeable care no matter what your problem is.

What mental health and wellness services are available?

The mental health and wellness services team provides counseling services, medication management, or a combination of the two to suit your needs.

Counseling can take many forms, but all are based around the concept of talking through your feelings and problems.

Some talking therapies look at the causes of your problems, and any deep-seated emotions or experiences, that could have led to your current distress.

Other therapies are more practical in nature, providing you with the tools you need to deal with your current emotional state. For example, cognitive behavioral therapy can be highly effective in treating anxiety disorders.

Medication can also be of great benefit in treating mental health problems. Antidepressants, for instance, can make a significant difference in improving mood by helping rebalance your brain chemistry.

Talking therapies can sometimes be enough to help you through a difficult time. If you need medication for your condition, taking part in counseling as well is known to produce the optimal outcomes.

You don’t have to be a Lagniappe Medical Clinic patient to use the mental health and wellness services, and patients are welcome to use the services while remaining with their current primary care physician. However, if you are looking for a new primary care provider, you’re welcome to register as a Lagniappe Medical Clinic patient.
