Psychiatric Conditions Q&A

What are psychiatric conditions?

Psychiatric conditions, also called mental health disorders, affect how a person behaves, thinks, feels, and interacts with others. These conditions range from mild to severe. While some people experience symptoms that affect their everyday lives, others are high-functioning and can cope with the help of minor lifestyle changes, therapy, or medication.

What are the most common signs of psychiatric conditions?

Psychiatric conditions affect every person differently. Symptoms can be subtle or significant. Telltale warning signs of psychiatric disorders include:

  • Mood changes
  • Sadness or hopelessness
  • Anxiety, worry, or nervousness
  • Changes in weight
  • Repetitive behaviors
  • Routine inflexibility
  • Substance abuse
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Risky behaviors
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Hallucinations or delusions
  • Social withdrawal
  • Unexplained pain (headaches or muscle aches)
  • Unexplained fatigue or restlessness
  • Insomnia or oversleeping

 

Psychiatric conditions can affect your professional, school, and personal relationships without proper mental health care. April and her team work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your unique needs and supports your journey toward improved mental well-being.

This is followed by a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, a deep dive into your mental well-being. April and her team explore your personal history, symptoms, and strengths to create a clear picture of your unique situation. This evaluation helps determine the specific condition you’re dealing with.
