A Guide To Mental Health For College Students by drsdiwan(m): 7:46pm On Jan 18
If you are an incoming college student, mental health might not be the first thing on your mind. As exciting as it can be to finally move away from home and out into the world, being in unfamiliar surroundings can also bring with it feelings of loneliness, isolation, or homesickness. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, consider reaching out to a psychiatrist doctor in Bhopal to help address your symptoms before they get worse and to stay healthy throughout your college years and beyond. Here’s what you need to know about getting mental health care as a college student.
Signs of Mental Health Issues
Many students experience stress and pressure as they adjust to college. But it’s important to know when you or someone you know may be struggling with a mental health issue that requires professional attention. According to psychiatrist, if you see any of these warning signs from a friend or roommate, encourage them to visit a mental health clinic in Bhopal:
Marked personality change (e.g., becoming fearful, reckless), loss of interest in activities, neglecting responsibilities at work/school, difficulty concentrating on tasks; social withdrawal; decreased performance at work/school; increased use of alcohol or drugs.
Types of Mental Disorders
The general term mental disorder can cover a wide range of conditions, but there are three major types: mood disorders, anxiety disorders and psychotic disorders. Mood disorders include depression and bipolar disorder; anxiety disorders include social phobia and obsessive-compulsive disorder; and psychotic disorders include schizophrenia.
Any person with a mental disorder should be evaluated by a licensed mental health professional—the type that specializes in your particular condition. They will provide you with a clinical diagnosis based on their assessment.
Treatment Options
The first thing you’ll need is a diagnosis, so it’s a good idea to consult with a psychiatrist who can help you figure out what type of therapy would work best. For example, if anxiety disorders are your primary concern, cognitive behavioral therapy may be your best bet; or if OCD is what’s eating away at you on a daily basis, then exposure and response prevention might be in order.
The most important person in dealing with mental health issues is yourself. The advice of the best psychiatrist in Bhopal should always be taken into consideration, but you hold your fate in your own hands. After some self-reflection and experimenting, you will find what works best for you. Good luck!
