Shatter the stigma around seeking help for mental health

Everyone feels anxious now and then, because they dread being in a stressful situation—such as, problems at work or perhaps a failing marriage. For some people, anxiety comes and goes and the effects of it are brief. However, for many people, they’re more than just passing worries. Anxiety is an indicator of an underlying disorder, when feelings become excessive, all-consuming, and interfere with daily life.

Symptoms of anxiety vary from person to person and not everyone reacts to them in similar ways, but the underlying cause of it puts the body on high alert for a flight or fight response. As a result, several symptoms of anxiety manifest in the form of agitation, nervousness, excessive worry, fear, difficulty concentrating, restlessness, rapid heart rate, heavy sweating, weakness, lethargy, and trembling or muscle twitching. Other severe symptoms may include panic attacks, insomnia and gastronomical problems.

If you or someone you love experiences these symptoms, its best to seek help for it without being put off by the thought of what people may or may not think. To shatter the stigma that surrounds mental health and to help individuals with anxiety disorders, Comprehensive Counseling Services, LLC offers treatment for anxiety. Our licensed therapists are equipped to help individuals reach their full potential by overcoming and controlling these symptoms.

Overcoming anxiety and emotional distress

Mental health has often been considered inferior to physical health. One of the reasons why this is still a prevailing belief among many is that the effects of mental health aren’t as explicit as perhaps a bleeding wound. But does that undermine the importance of taking mental well-being seriously? It certainly shouldn’t.

Mental health deterioration has long-term effects that may be impossible to recover from, if left unchecked. One such mental illness is anxiety disorders. Anxiety disorders are caused by a variety of reasons and the distress that emanates from them can hinder a person’s day-to-day tasks, making it hard to perform even the most menial activities.

Anxiety disorder is an umbrella term that includes panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, phobias, and general anxiety disorder. The effects of these disorders are different—for instance, a panic attack can lead to chest pain, palpitations, and can cause trouble in breathing whereas, a general anxiety disorder might prevent an individual from performing activities that seemingly cause no harm.

It’s important to seek help for anxiety disorders before it becomes crippling. At Comprehensive Counseling Services, LLC, licensed therapists offer treatment for anxiety to help individuals overcome these symptoms and lead their life without fears that are holding them back.
