Taking Care of Your Mental Health
The emphasis on mental health in today’s world makes us more aware of how mental disorders can negatively impact people’s lives, with different types of mental disorders that are categorised based on their behaviour and symptoms. Some mental disorders can develop over time, while others are caused by a traumatic/life-changing event. Specific mental disorders can also be genetically inherited, while certain developmental disorders have a childhood onset that carries on through adulthood. If you are looking for a professional psychiatric care unit that is more than just a basic hospital, Beethoven Recovery Centre is your answer!
Our Psychiatric Care Unit
We employ medical professionals who are available around the clock for our patients, taking care of their needs, no matter the time of day. We are remotely located as well, just outside the city of Pretoria, next to the Hartbeespoort dam. Our premises are surrounded with beautiful and peaceful mother nature, creating a calm environment to allow the patients to relax and focus on their mental health. On our premises, we have extramural activities to entertain our patients during their stay with us. We also employ a professional chef who prepares 3 meals per day and snacks in-between the meals. Therefore, we are more than just another psychiatric hospital, taking care that our patients are our priority.
COVID-19’s Impact on Our Mental Health
There are several opinions about COVID-19 and its undeniable impact on society. However, COVID-19 can also have an impact on our mental health. As a result of the outbreak in 2020, many people lost their jobs because of retrenchments and businesses shutting down. In 2021, the world rolled out several versions of COVID-19 vaccines in an effort to return to “normal”. However, the vaccines brought their own challenges and are still not perfected to a point where being vaccinated will stop you from contracting the virus. When taking such factors into consideration, it is easy to conclude that COVID-19 adds its own layer of unrest and stress in our daily lives, which can have an impact on our mental health.
Social Media’s Impact on Our Mental Health
Social media platforms such as Twitter, TikTok, and Instagram are vastly popular around the world, with today’s youth and young adults indulging in the freedom and ease of access provided by these platforms. It allows us to connect with our friends, family, and loved ones, no matter where we are. However, social media can also have a negative role to play regarding our mental health. Mental disorders that develop as a result of consistent behavioural patterns, such as severe depression, can be caused by low self-esteem and regularly being down on yourself over something that someone posted about you on social media. Although social media is not to blame for what people post on their platforms, it is always smart to be aware of how such platforms can alter your mood.
Our Treatment Solutions for People Suffering from a Mental Disorder
Some mental disorders are fully treatable, while others require recurring treatment, dependent on the type of mental disorder. Our psychiatric care unit admits people of 16 years and older, with a full evaluation upon admittance to accurately determine a treatment solution for that specific patient. Our programme is adaptable to each individual as well, which means that every patient in our care will receive psychiatric treatment that is tailored to their individual needs. Therefore, when you choose our psychiatric care unit, you are not just another mental-health patient in a lonely hospital and will receive professional psychiatric care that aligns with your mental disorder and persona.
People suffering from mental disorders are commonly embarrassed about them, especially when they feel like their peers and family are not supportive and will ridicule them for admitting that they need psychiatric care. Disorders such as PTSD and severe depression can be very detrimental to an adult’s life. With us on your side, you can seek the professional help to overcome treatable mental disorders and take back control of your life.
