Mental Health Q&A

What is mental health?

Mental health describes your psychological, emotional, and social well-being and function. Your mental health plays a significant role in how you act, feel, think, and make decisions.

Chemical imbalances in your brain, chronic stress, or other environmental factors can negatively impact your mental health and quality of life. If left untreated, mental health disorders can increase your risk for self-harm and suicidal thoughts or actions.

Alertive Healthcare Medical Group offers comprehensive mental health services in-office for adults aged 20 and up, including diagnostic evaluations and customized treatment plans for:


Anxiety is a mental disorder that causes persistent feelings of uncontrollable fear or dread. The condition can also trigger physical symptoms like a racing heart, sweating, and digestive upset.


Depression is a mood disorder that causes low mood, sadness, hopelessness, and guilt. These symptoms typically last two weeks or longer and can be severe enough to interfere with your daily responsibilities.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

PTSD develops after you experience or witness a traumatic event, such as violence, an auto accident, or a natural disaster. The condition triggers flashbacks of the event, nightmares, and severe anxiety that makes you avoid certain people, places, or situations that remind you of the trauma.

When should I schedule a mental health consultation?

If you’re thinking about harming yourself or others, call 911 or seek immediate medical attention at the nearest hospital.

You can schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Alertive Healthcare Medical Group if you have symptoms of a mental health condition, such as:

  • Restlessness
  • Persistent sadness
  • Intrusive thoughts
  • Concentration difficulties
  • Memory problems
  • Feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness

You also need a mental health evaluation if you cope with your symptoms by isolating yourself from others or if you misuse drugs or alcohol.

The medical providers offer comprehensive mental health evaluations in the office and during online telehealth visits to better understand your symptoms. 

How are mental health disorders treated?

Psychotherapy (talk therapy) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) are effective at helping you recognize symptoms of a mental health disorder and how they impact your life. Therapy provides you with tools to boost your mood, improve your mindset, and cope with your condition in the long term.

Your physician may prescribe anti-anxiety or antidepressant medications that work directly on the chemicals in your brain to stabilize and enhance your mood. 

The providers monitor the success of your treatment during routine follow-up visits and can make adjustments to your medications if necessary. Call the Alertive Healthcare Medical Group office to schedule a mental health evaluation or book an appointment online today.
