The State of Your Mental Health
The new year is around the corner, and everyone is in an uplifting spirit as it is almost time for the festive holidays. During the holidays, we regularly spend time with friends and family, feasting and celebrating our way into the new year. However, with the current state of COVID-19 infections in South Africa, especially Gauteng, things might be different this year once again. On top of that, COVID-19 has shown to have an undeniable impact on people’s mental health. Luckily, Beethoven Recovery Centre offers a remote psychiatric care hospital/facility that is located just outside Pretoria.
Elements That Impact Our State of Mental Health
The majority of mental disorders have childhood onsets, leading the majority of adults to think that they are “safe” regarding the development of a mental illness/disorder. However, research shows that more than 60% of adults will experience depression and dangerous stress levels during their adulthood. Moreover, adults living in Gauteng are more likely to be a victim of a crime, go through a divorce, or suddenly lose their jobs according to the statistics over the past few years. These events qualify as traumatic and/or life-changing, which can lead to the development of a mental disorder, with PTSD being the most probable.
Be Aware of Your Current State of Mental Health
Although we live a fast-paced life in Gauteng, it is important to always be aware of our personal state of mental health, especially after experiencing something traumatic/life-changing. Severe depression can control a person’s life to a point where they avoid any social interaction and just shut down. PTSD can also take control over an adult’s life, inducing significant stress levels when a specific memory/emotion is triggered. The answer is to seek professional psychiatric care at a mental health hospital/facility. At Beethoven, we admit people of 16 years and older.
