Mental Health Service
Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
At GARH, we treat a number of mental health issues such as Anxiety & Panic Attacks (Anxiety is a normal emotion that we all experience but becomes a mental health problem when someone finds they are feeling this way all or most of the time), Bipolar Disorder (A diagnosis given to someone who experiences extreme periods of low (depressed) and high (manic) moods), Depression(A diagnosis given to someone who is experiencing a low mood and who finds it hard or impossible to have fun or enjoy their lives), Obsessive-compulsive Disorder (A mental health diagnosis given to someone who experiences obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviours), Personality Disorders (If someone has a personality disorder, some aspects of their personality might affect them in a way which makes it very difficult to cope with day to day life, especially when it comes to relationships), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (A diagnosis given to people who develop a certain set of symptoms following a traumatic event), Psychosis ( A person experiencing psychosis perceives the world in a different way to those around them.
The most common types of psychosis are hallucinations and delusions), Schizophrenia (A diagnosis given to people who experience symptoms of psychosis, alongside what are called ‘negative symptoms’ and Self Harm (when someone purposely hurts themselves, usually in order to cope with intense emotional distress).
