Mood disorders, such as anxiety and depression, are more common than you think. At ForCare Medical Center, we understand the weight of these conditions and how they can affect your overall well being. Therefore, we take a comprehensive and direct approach to mental health, helping to develop an ideal treatment plan based on your lifestyle.
Anxiety is a natural reaction to stress. However, intense anxiety that leads to excessive fear that hinders your ability to function is considered an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders affect 30% of adults at some point in their lives. However, children are susceptible to anxiety disorders, as well.
The good news is that while anxiety disorders are very unpleasant, they are highly treatable. In fact, many individuals with anxiety lead normal and productive lives with flourishing careers and relationships after seeking treatment.
Depression is another common and serious mental illness that affects an estimated 16 million adults and children in the United States. It causes severe symptoms that affect how the patient feels, thinks, and handles daily activities, such as sleeping, eating, or working.
Depression is also highly treatable, with reports of 80-90% of people responding well and feeling better after following a clinically-effective treatment program.
