Mental Health Q&A

What is mental health?

Mental health refers to your social, emotional, and psychological well-being. It affects how you feel, think, behave, and interact with others. Mental health can impact how you view yourself and the world around you. It influences nearly every aspect of life, from cognitive functioning and learning to decision-making and emotional regulation.

Good mental health can help you better navigate change, cope with negative emotions, and maintain healthy relationships. When you experience mental instability, it can impact your daily functioning, relationships, and overall quality of life.

With an emphasis on naturopathic medicine and whole-body care, the Bridge City Family Medical Clinic providers aim to uncover the root cause of mental health concerns and develop personalized treatments that promote long-term wellness.

What are the signs of mental health concerns?

Mental health isn’t black-and-white. While some people experience noticeable signs that affect their daily functioning, others have more subtle symptoms. Recognizing the warning signs of a mental health issue is essential to receive timely, effective treatment. Common signs of mental health disorders include:

  • Irritability, angry outbursts, or short temper
  • Difficulty managing emotions
  • Impulsivity or risky behaviors

  • Sadness or hopelessness
  • Unintended weight gain or loss
  • Sleep changes
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Low libido
  • Struggles with school or work performance
  • Increased substance use

Many of the above symptoms can also signal an underlying condition, like thyroid disease or low testosterone, so a thorough evaluation is crucial to ensure effective care.

Many disorders can affect mental health. The most common mental health disorders include:

  • Anxiety
