Looking after your mental wellbeing
At Focus Medical Clinic we are sympathetic to your physical health and your mental wellbeing.
Mental health issues are frequently misunderstood. Psychological symptoms can be as life-altering as physical illness, but because they’re not ‘visible’, they are often misunderstood. In reality, mental illness is not so different to any other illness; most people can be successfully treated, restoring their quality of life.
'Mental health' is not a term to be scared of
All sorts of people need help to maintain or improve their mental wellbeing at some time in their lives. One in four of us will suffer from mental health issues at some point in our lives. Just as your body develops problems, so can your mind. We will give you the support, the advice and, where necessary, the counselling and medication you need.
What could this include?
This covers a range of conditions including:
- Alcohol dependency
- Concern over health issues
But it can manifest itself in many other ways too. If you’re at all concerned about how you’re feeling, just call us to arrange an appointment.
What causes it?
There isn’t any one simple answer. Mental health issues can have various underlying causes. However, given enough stress many people will succumb at some point, some sooner than others. One thing we do know: it is not a personal failing, no more than a susceptibility to colds and flu.
