Morgan Mental Health Care
What We Treat
“Mental health” and “mental illness” are frequently used as if they mean the same thing, however they do not. Everyone has mental health, just like everyone has health. Over the course of a lifetime, not all people will experience a mental disorder or illness, but everyone will have a struggle or crisis with their mental wellness. Some examples of mental health crises include depression, trauma, eating disorders, alcohol or substance abuse, self-injury and suicidal thoughts.
One of the most common signs of emotional crisis is a clear and abrupt change in behavior, however, a crisis can also be a sign of an undiagnosed mental health disorder. A person should seek a health professional who may perform a mental health screening, a behavioral assessment or a mental health evaluation to ascertain if the person is experiencing a situational mental health crisis or a clinical mental health crisis affected by a mental disorder or illness. A mental health screening may offer information that may be helpful in finding additional resources and selecting an effective treatment plan.
Similar to the challenges we all face with our physical wellness from time to time, like feeling unwell but not having a serious illness, some people may have poor mental health without a mental illness. We all have days where we feel a bit down, or stressed out, or overwhelmed by something that’s happening in our lives.
An important part of good mental health is the ability to look at concerns and issues realistically. Good mental health isn’t about ignoring problems and feeling happy and confident 100% of time. It’s about living life while positively managing crises and disorders.

Anxiety is a complex psychological phenomenon that transcends cultural, age, and gender boundaries. It is a subjective feeling of tension, fear, or apprehension that often manifests in a variety of physical and psychological symptoms. These may include palpitations, excessive sweating, trembling, irritability, loss of concentration, exhaustion, and sleep disturbances, amongst others. While anxiety can be a natural physiological response to stress, prolonged or excessive feelings of uneasiness can have a debilitating impact on one’s quality of life, relationships, and overall health. Therefore, it is essential to address these symptoms through appropriate interventions such as therapy, medication, lifestyle changes, and relaxation techniques. Seeking professional help when anxiety becomes overwhelming can significantly improve one’s ability to manage these emotions and lead a healthy and fulfilling life.
Bipolar disorder, a mental health condition characterized by a range of mood swings, often has a significant impact on the individual’s daily life. The disorder typically presents as episodes of depression alternating with periods of mania, also known as manic highs. Bipolar disorder can cause changes in behavior, energy levels, and activity levels that accompany the mood shifts. During depressive episodes, the individual may experience feelings of sadness, hopelessness, and loss of interest in activities they once enjoyed. It’s also common for them to experience changes in sleep patterns, fatigue, and changes in appetite. Whereas during manic episodes, individuals may feel excessively energized, restless, and may engage in risk-taking behaviors. These shifts in mood can happen rapidly or gradually and can interfere with an individual’s ability to carry out day-to-day tasks or maintain relationships.
