At Clear Recovery Center, we are dedicated to helping our clients engage in effective and individualized treatment plans to successfully manage their mental health conditions.

What is Mental Illness?

Mental illness, also referred to as mental health disorders, refers to a range of mental health conditions that affect a person’s thinking, behavior or mood. Examples of mental illnesses include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and post traumatic stress disorder. Mental illness does not discriminate. It impacts many people regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or profession. Although mental illness can significantly affect an individual’s ability to meet major responsibilities, it is treatable and many people recover.

How is Mental Illness Treated?

Recovery from mental illness is an ongoing process that varies from person to person. Even people with the same diagnosis will have different experiences, needs, goals and preferences for treatment. At Clear Recovery Center, we specialize in an evidence-based, multimodal and individualized treatment approach.

Signs & Symptoms of Mental Illness

Many people experience mental health concerns from time to time, but a mental health concern becomes a mental illness when it affects your ability to function in your daily life. Symptoms of mental illness vary from person to person and between diagnoses. However, some common signs and symptoms include:

  • Change in sleep
  • Change in appetite
  • Loss of interest in things you once enjoyed
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Loss of motivation
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Feeling uneasy or on edge

Risks of Untreated Mental Illness

Gratefully, mental illnesses are treatable conditions. And while millions of people who experience depression, personality disorders, anxiety, and other mental illnesses seek professional treatment to cope, there are millions of others who do not. Unfortunately, when treatment is not obtained for a mental illness, the risks that the mental illness will negatively impact one’s life increase exponentially. Some of the most common risks associated with allowing a mental illness to go untreated can include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Increased risk for developing a substance use disorder
  • Having interpersonal challenges with friends, family, and loved ones
  • Experiencing difficulty obtaining and sustaining a job
  • Being irresponsible with finances
  • Becoming withdrawn from others
  • Developing a co-morbid mental illness
  • Suffering significant mental and emotional impacts

The best thing that a person can do if they believe they have a mental illness is to reach out for help. Doing so will help prevent these and other risks from becoming problematic. Instead, a person can learn how to manage the symptoms of their mental illness in a healthy manner. If you think you or a loved one may be struggling with addiction, contact your doctor or mental health professional.

Your next step is clear.

  • The multi-pronged approach; the counselors, individual therapy, nutrition, sympathetic/empathetic counselors of each group session shifted my brain paths. You are never finished there, even when you “graduate”, they hold alumni group sessions when you feel you need it. I have nothing but gratitude for their program.

  • Clear Recovery Center is my second family that I never knew I had that supported me and continues to passionately support the sober community. The therapists, counselors and group facilitators have been amazing in helping me have a voice, loving myself again, and seeing the world in a new light. I am eternally grateful.
