Psychiatric Care Facility

Your Answer to a Psychiatric Care Facility where the Patient Comes First

Psychiatric care facilities usually fall under the stereotypical viewpoint that they are “meant for crazy people”. However, we live in a time where we have made positive strides towards professional and effective mental healthcare solutions for people suffering from mental disorders. We have also made large strides regarding research and awareness of several mental disorders over the past few decades. Therefore, people should not feel ashamed for seeking professional psychiatric care, but rather see it as an effective method to overcome the daily challenges of living with a mental disorder. If you are looking for a facility around the larger Gauteng area, Beethoven Recovery Centre is your solution!

Different Types of Mental Disorders

Back in the good old days, people used the word “crazy” to describe all forms of mental disorders. Today, we can differentiate between developmental disorders, disorders that are genetically inherited, and disorders that develop as a result of experiencing a life-changing or life-threatening event. Accordingly, we can accommodate the various types of disorders with specific treatments and can define between treatable/curable and non-treatable disorders. We can also identify elements that pose a threat to our mental health and ensure that we do not fall victim to these elements in our daily lives.

Developmental disorders cover mental disorders that have a direct impact on typical social interactions and thinking patterns and would most commonly have a childhood onset. These disorders include ADHD and autism to only name a few. Genetically inherited mental disorders can also have childhood onsets. However, disorders such as bipolar disorder might have a teenage or adulthood onset. Therefore, it is always a smart idea to be aware of any family history regarding mental disorders.

Coping with Stress and Depression

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), bout 60% of all adults will experience excessive levels of stress and depression during their lives. COVID-19 adds another layer on top of these odds, as many people lose loved ones to the virus or are forced to make drastic changes in their normal lives. For some people, change is the only constant in their lives, while others might be taken out of their comfort zones and must fend for themselves in terms of dealing with such changes and learning to cope within a new environment. This is where the risk of developing a mental disorder comes into play.

PTSD and clinical depression are some of the most common mental disorders in adults around the world. Luckily, these types of mental disorders are not permanent, and with the assistance of a professional psychiatric care facility, you can seek the treatment that you need to overcome such disorders and take back control of your life once again. At Beethoven Recovery Centre, our psychiatric care facility admits people of 16 years and older and can be the shining light at the end of a dark tunnel for people suffering from curable/treatable mental disorders.
