Mental Health Q&A

What is mental health?

Though mental health is associated with psychological disorders, it represents much more than emotional and behavioral challenges. Your mental health guides all aspects of your life, from making decisions to building relationships.

Your mental health affects your physical health. And every facet of your life, from childhood and life experiences to lifestyle habits and physical condition, influences your mental health.

The Apollo Physicians team honors these essential connections. They take a holistic approach that nurtures your psychological and physical well-being.

When do I need mental health care?

Mental health care helps you through many challenges. You might need guidance when facing major life transitions or managing stress. Parents often need help with their children’s behavioral problems or advice when family members can’t communicate.

Therapy and medication are the two primary mental health treatments for disorders like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Schizophrenia
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Substance use disorder and addiction

The Apollo Physicians team provides comprehensive care for these and other mental health disorders.

What signs indicate I need mental health care?

Mental health disorders cause many symptoms. This list isn’t comprehensive, but it includes some of the most common signs indicating you need mental health treatment:

  • Isolating yourself from friends and family
  • Avoiding activities you once enjoyed
  • Struggling with fatigue and low energy
  • Feeling hopeless or worthless
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Overusing alcohol and/or drugs
  • Experiencing mood swings
  • Having uncontrollable and upsetting thoughts
  • Having flashbacks or memories of trauma
  • Having angry outbursts or acting aggressively
  • Being unable to control your emotions
  • Having delusions or hallucinations

When your symptoms affect your ability to function at work, school, and/or home, it’s a sign you’re overwhelmed and need treatment at Apollo Physicians.

What mental health services might I receive?

Your Apollo Physicians provider completes a thorough evaluation, diagnoses the cause of your symptoms, and recommends therapy and/or medication management.

They also provide medication-assisted treatment (MAT), an outpatient program for treating opioid and alcohol addictions. MAT includes medication that helps you detox and therapy to support your long-term recovery.
