Mental Health Q & A

Who should seek mental health support?

It’s normal to have occasional days of sadness, anxiousness, or overwhelming feelings, but when mental health concerns interfere with your daily activities and undermine your quality of life, you should seek care. 

Mental health conditions like major depressive disorder, anxiety disorder, and substance use disorder rarely resolve without care from a compassionate provider or team of providers. If you have an ongoing mental health problem, checking in with a care provider to determine if your treatment and management are working is essential, too. 

 Indications that you could benefit from mental health therapy include:

  • Feelings of persistent sadness and hopelessness
  • Routine feelings of guilt
  • Extreme mood swings
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Excessive worry
  • Unexplained weight changes
  • Increased isolation
  • Loss of interest in usual activities

Children who have mental health concerns may have disciplinary problems at school. Mental health problems can make it hard to focus at work, school, or in relationships.

What type of mental health support do you provide?

The providers at Stanton Family Clinic offer patient-focused services that help patients manage mental health and behavioral problems.

The team performs diagnostic screenings that involve a thorough review of your and your family’s health history. They’ll review your symptoms and work to understand the root cause of your mental health concerns. 

The Stanton Family Clinic works with you to develop a treatment plan that stabilizes your mental health, so you feel better every day. If you have a complex problem, the team refers you to a trusted provider in the community that can help you with talk therapy and more detailed treatments. 

Medications, including antidepressants and antianxiety medications, may be part of your mental health treatment plan. The team prescribes medications, monitors side effects, and offers refills when necessary. 

Why should I be concerned about my mental health?

Mental wellness makes you more resilient when faced with stress, adversity, or disappointment. Mental wellness doesn’t mean you’re without emotion; it means you're better able to manage your emotions, fears, and turmoil. Worry, loneliness, sadness, and anger have less of an effect on your long-term health.

Good mental health means you’re better able to deal with day-to-day life, personal and family relationships, and challenges. The mental health support at Montgomery Family Care helps you have stronger emotional, social, and mental resources.
