With a large proportion of individuals suffering from mental health issues or symptoms, it is important that the taboo branded subject is spoken about. It is also vital that those suffering from their mental health understand that support is available.

Symptoms can measure from mild to chronic, resulting in life-limiting impacts.

To avoid this long-term experience, please be reassured that mental health treatment and specially designed mental health rehab programmes are available to alleviate those symptoms.

The Rise of Mental Health Disorders

Unfortunately, the diagnosis of mental health disorders is rising. Especially found in young people, a vast variety of different mental health issues are now overtaking and impacting lives, for the worst.

Conditions such as gender dysmorphia, body dysmorphia, personality disorders, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and anxiety are now becoming more apparent, down to life pressures. From wanting to look a certain way, from experiencing gender confusion, from comparing oneself severely, these mental health issues are damaging the cognitive health of individuals, along with changing their behaviours, moods and outlooks.

It is important to note that these mental health conditions are pre-existing. They have been around for years. However, older generations have found great difficulty in opening up and confronting their mental health; actually, known to cause greater deterioration.

As mental health is now a big talking point, more and more individuals are acknowledging their negative thoughts, behaviours, associations or routines, by considering mental health treatment. This is a positive step, as ongoing symptoms of mental illness can cause chronic psychological damage, along with developing into additional issues, such as substance abuse.

With this in mind, if you’re concerned that your mental health is suffering, support services are available through treatment and tailor-made mental health rehab programmes.

What can Cause Mental Illness?

Mental health conditions are very complex. Individuals can experience a chronic standalone illness or a combination of differing psychological weaknesses. With this in mind, underlying causations of mental illness can be difficult to gauge from face value.

Yet, there is a range of common factors which are pinpointed as key causations of mental illness. From genetics, where existing weaknesses are present, increasing mental illness susceptibility, and stress, to environmental factors, such as abuse and personality traits, differing degrees of mental health problems can arise.

One of the most worrying influential factors is substance abuse. Concerns are down to the high rise in drug and alcohol abuse, especially in younger people.

Here a high correlation between substance abuse and mental health conditions is present, resulting in a dual diagnosis. In this instance, treatment for mental health conditions will be required, in unison with addiction treatment.

Get Help With Depression

We have many different kinds of mental health issues people can suffer with. Depression is the most common mental health issue, with 5% of the world’s population suffering from depression anytime, according to the World Health Organisation.

Here at Addiction Advocates, we can advise on a wide range of depressions and help find the treatment you need.

Clinical Depression

Clinical depression is a severe form of depression that can last a very long time, often years. It is a fact that clinical depression can majorly affect your life and your ability to perform everyday tasks.

Reactive Depression

Reactive depression is a depression that can for after a traumatic event in your life. Reactive depression is often confused with grief, but grief will lessen as time progresses. If you feel like you have been in a period of grief for a prolonged period of time, you may have actually developed a reactive depression and should seek treatment.

Seasonal Affective Disorder

Seasonal Affective Disorder or Sad is a type of depression that can come and go with the seasons. It is often referred to as “Winter depression”, but some people also have symptoms of SAD in the summer and feel better in the Winter.

Perinatal and Postnatal Depression

Postnatal and Prenatal depression are very common forms of depression that can occur during or after pregnancy. More then 1 in 10 women suffer from postnatal depression and the experience can be very traumatic, especially after birth. Women are often left feeling guilty, depressed, very tired and can harbour feelings of inadequacy and that their baby would be better off without them.

Depressive Episodes

A depressive episode is when a person falls into intense depression for some time. Depressive episodes last up to 2 months and can happen just once or reoccur multiple times in a person’s life. Some people may experience depressive episodes multiple times in a year and other people may fall into depressive episodes sporadically over a longer period of time. Postnatal depression can also be classed as a depressive episode as you fall into a state of depression.

Recurrent Depressive Disorder

Recurrent Depressive Disorder is when a person continuously gets depressed throughout their lifetime. The spaces in between these depressions can vary from weeks to months to years. You should understand Recurrent Depressive Disorder is classed as clinical depression and can be experienced in mild forms of depression or severe; if you are suffering from recurrent depression, you should seek treatment.

Completing a mental health rehab programme

Through completing either a residential or outpatient rehab programme, you’ll have access to leading treatments, designed to promote mental health recovery. It is however important to remember that as there are many different conditions out there, along with differing severities and complexities, personal assessments will be required. Here at Addiction Advocates, we can complete this initial assessment helping to pave the way for mental health treatment recommendations.

Mental health treatments, with a focus on psychological therapy, include but are not limited to:

Cognitive behavioural therapy

CBT is one of the most utilised mental health treatment options. This is down to its ability to understand the underlying causation, fuelling symptoms, while also realigning the mind and changing outlooks. It is commonly used for mental conditions, including depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Talking therapy

Psychological conditions are surrounding thoughts, feelings and outlooks. In order to break these down and realign them to reflect positivity, talking therapy is a must. Working with a mental health team will be highly beneficial when opening up about experiences and triggers.

Group therapy

Accountability is a big part of recovery. Understanding that choices and behaviours are influenced by your own person is very important. Group therapy can work really well to increase action, along with influencing direct results for the likes of social anxiety.

Family therapy

A strong support network is very helpful when working through mental health treatment options. By allowing your family to understand your mental health state greater, you’ll likely experience an easier transition post-rehab.

Acceptance and commitment therapy

This is a great psychological therapy to help clients understand what they can and cannot control. This can improve conditions where previous life events, out of personal control have influenced mental health symptoms.


It is very important that the here and now is appreciated. Through mindfulness, clients will have the opportunity to rebalance their mind, while focusing on life prioritising; including the improvement of their mental health.

Compassion focused therapy

Utilised for conditions such as body dysmorphia or obsessive comparison disorder, this is a great mental health treatment to boost self-esteem, while increasing comfort with oneself.

As there is a wide range of mental health treatment options, completing an initial assessment is vital.

In conjunction with a leading treatment centre, completing a mental health rehab programme will be beneficial, helping to ease and control psychological health, improving happiness, acceptance and quality of life. For our help with the initial referral process, reach out today.

When to Receive Mental Health Treatment?

Xanax Addiction Treatment

When experiencing problems with physical health, many individuals will source medical support efficiently. Yet, when focusing on mental health treatment, there are great delays. This is commonly down to the lack of understanding around available mental health treatment, along with its sensitivity.

Although here at Addiction Advocates, we appreciate that it is a private matter, sourcing support is vital. By delaying mental health treatment, conditions can progress significantly, requiring vast psychological therapy and medication.

With this in mind, no matter how mild or chronic your mental health symptoms may be, we urge you to open up and acknowledge your mental illness. Turning to family and friends, helplines, local mental health professionals or treatment centres will ease this time for you.

Through our referral service, we can put you in touch with a mental health team, offering effective psychological support.
