Getting the right diagnosis is key, since this is where treatment begins — and illicit substances can cause symptoms that mimic many mental health illnesses. 

Everything from jet lag and stress to mental or physical illness, and even genetics, can impact the ability to get a good night’s sleep, says Dr. Misty Tu.

Many OCD symptoms may not initially appear to be severe; however these symptoms can escalate to the point where a person needs to seek help.

Once a decision has been made to seek therapy, it’s important to find a provider who can help direct you to the best treatment: talk therapy, medication, or both.

For people who experience symptoms that negatively impact their daily lives, getting help to cope and recover from a traumatic experience is essential.

There are two types of benzodiazepines, hypnotics and anxiolytics. Hypnotics are commonly used to treat sleep problems; anxiolytics are often used for anxiety.

The American Psychiatric Association reports that 80% to 90% of people can find relief from depression with treatment.

The American Psychiatric Association reports that an estimated 8.4% of children and 2.5% of adults have ADHD.

If you’ve been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, it’s important to know there are effective treatments available and, most important, that you are not alone — the National Alliance on Mental Illness estimates that 7 million U.S. adults have bipolar disorder.

One in five adults (47 million) reports having a mental health disorder, according to the National Institutes of Health.
