Helping People Who Suffer from Mental Disorders
Mental health is as important as physical health. People who suffer from a mental disorder require professional treatment in the same sense that you would seek medical treatment for physical ailments. If you live in Gauteng and are looking for a psychiatric hospital or facility that can deliver professional psychiatric treatment, Beethoven Recovery Centre is your first choice. We are remotely located, away from the busy city hustle, to create a peaceful and tranquil environment that allows our patients to focus on their mental health and their treatment programme when in our care.
How Can Mental Illness Disrupt My Daily Routine?
There are several types of mental disorders – some of them are treatable and can be overcome with professional psychiatric care, while others are genetically inherited and require recurring psychiatric treatment. A mental disorder such as PTSD will stem from a traumatic and/or life-threatening event, with some people not even aware that they have PTSD. Severe depression can develop from such an event as well and can also stem from behavioural patterns. Behavioural disorders, for the most part, are treatable to a point where the person can lead a normal life and be in control of their choices, emotions, and mental health.
People who do not suffer from a severe/chronic mental disorder will never truly comprehend the effects of such a disorder on a person. It has reached a point where people are openly joke about their “OCD” or “ADD” without understanding what such mental disorders really are. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD) are ideal examples of chronic mental disorders that are genetically inherited. Such disorders require specialised and recurring treatment, with medication also being an option to keep the disorders under control. Therefore, psychiatric hospitals can play a huge role in such a person’s life, giving them the means to take back control of their lives as opposed to only being a victim of their mental condition.
Bipolar disorder is another common genetically inherited mental disorder and a perfect example of an episodic condition. Episodic mental disorders would come and go in a sense but would always be present and ready to flip things upside down in an instant. Bipolar disorder causes a person to experience extreme versions of their emotions, whether they are overly happy or depressingly sad. Although it does not sound so severe, the extremities can and will directly impact that person’s life during such an episode, causing them to act differently and make irrational and impulsive choices. Therefore, psychiatric hospitals can be a safe haven for people with mental disorders, giving them a helping hand to face their unique challenges and live life to the fullest of their potential.
