Read More

Many people view a mental health diagnosis as something to be ashamed or afraid of. In many cases, this results in a failure to seek treatment. Unfortunately, a variety of problems can then arise. Simple therapies can improve many of these conditions. The worst part about not seeking treatment, though, is that most disorders will only worsen over time.

Transformations at Mending Fences is committed to offering customized treatment plans that focus on individual needs. The severity of a mental health diagnosis can vary based on a variety of factors, but proper intervention can help in all cases. Take a moment to review what we offer, and if you or a loved one need help, contact us today to learn more.

Mental Health Diagnosis: A Common Problem

One of the biggest obstacles for people seeking treatment is the belief that they’ve done something wrong. There’s a prevalent thought that mental illness doesn’t affect many people. Because of this, individuals with mental health diagnoses often try to “power through” them. In reality, over 25 percent of American adults deal with a psychiatric disorder in any given year.

Additionally, over half of Americans will receive a mental health disorder diagnosis in their lives. This tells us that being diagnosed with a psychiatric illness at some point is the norm. Some of these conditions – such as acute stress disorder (ASD) – may subside on their own over time. When left untreated, though, they could become more significant issues.

Transformations at Mending Fences makes sure that all our clients know there’s nothing wrong with them. A mental health diagnosis is only a lifetime sentence of pain and problems if we allow it to become one. Whether you need outpatient treatment, partial hospitalization or our residential facility, we have the tools to help you take your life back.

Types of Mental Health Diagnoses

Psychiatric disorders are not a single problem. The causes, onset, symptoms and severity of these conditions can vary significantly. This makes it important to recognize the full range of potential diagnoses. An interference in a person’s normal life is the red flag common to most of these, but understanding each condition can help you better approach the right treatment.

  • Anxiety disorders (e.g. OCD, phobias)
  • Mood disorders (e.g. depression, bipolar disorder)
  • Personality disorders
  • Trauma disorders
  • Schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders
  • Eating disorders (e.g. anorexia, bulimia)

Unfortunately, only about half of people will receive treatment for a mental health diagnosis. Untreated conditions are a serious risk regardless of the specific illness. Each of the categories of disorders mentioned above, for instance, increase the risk of suicide among their victims. This is far from the only negative outcome, though, so seeking treatment should always be a priority.

Mental Health Diagnosis Treatments

The field of mental health has grown exponentially even in just the last few decades. The availability of treatments has expanded greatly, and regardless of the specific mental health diagnosis, there is treatment available. Transformations at Mending Fences offers all the traditional therapies you would expect from a nationally accredited treatment facility:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Medication management
  • Treatment for common co-occurring disorders
  • Outpatient, partial hospitalization and residential programs
  • Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Anxiety management and coping skill classes
  • Individual, group and family therapy

These treatments can help for a variety of mental health diagnoses, but what works for one person will not always work for another. This is why treatment plans should be customized to the individual to ensure maximum effectiveness. That’s exactly what we do for clients of Transformations at Mending Fences.

Our clients also have access to a variety of therapies not offered at other facilities. By providing these treatment options, we ensure our clients have every tool available to help them deal with what’s occurring in their lives. These are just a few of the therapies our clients have access to:

  • Meditation and yoga classes
  • Experiential services (e.g. Adventure Therapy)
  • Managing social relationships classes
  • Focused treatment groups(e.g. religious, veteran, LGBTQIA)
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Creative writing
  • Equine therapy

One out of every four people will experience a mental health diagnosis this year. These individuals come from countless backgrounds, so it’s important to offer therapeutic options that provide the best opportunity for recovery. Transformations at Mending Fences has a certified staff of professionals focused on ensuring this takes place.
