Mental Health Q&A

What is mental health?

Mental health plays a large role in your general well-being, affecting the way you feel, think, and behave. Poor mental health can affect your ability to lead a fulfilling life. Proper mental health care is essential to ensure you feel satisfied with life, develop healthy interpersonal relationships, and maintain productivity.

As mental health and addiction specialists, the Braxton Medical Clinic, LLC team works with you to care for your mental well-being.

What are the signs I need mental health treatment?

Mental health disorders affect everyone differently; no two cases are the same. However, there are certain signs you should look out for to protect your mental health. Common signs you may benefit from mental health treatment include:

  • Low energy
  • Pulling away from loved ones
  • Declining productivity
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Sleeping too little or too much
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Unexplained aches and pains
  • Persistent sadness

Many people turn to drugs, alcohol, or other unhealthy substances to suppress their feelings and emotions when they have mental health concerns.

What are the most common mental health disorders?

Braxton Medical Clinic, LLC can diagnose and treat several mental health disorders, including:


Anxiety is a common mental health condition that causes persistent worry, dread, or fear. The team treats many different anxiety disorders, including general and social anxiety.


Another common mental health disorder, depression, leads to hopelessness and sadness and causes many individuals to disconnect from their loved ones.

Bipolar disorders

Bipolar disorders cause extreme highs (mania) and lows (depressive episodes) that can interfere with your quality of life.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

PTSD is a severe anxiety disorder that can cause nightmares, flashbacks, irritability, and other uncomfortable symptoms.

Can mental health disorders lead to addiction?

Many experts believe addiction is a form of self-medication for individuals suffering from mental health disorders. 

When you don’t have the appropriate treatment to address the symptoms of mental health concerns, substances such as alcohol and opioids may provide short-term relief. For example, individuals with anxiety often suffer from insomnia. Many rely on alcohol to induce sleep.

Turning to addictive substances to curb mental health symptoms is dangerous and even life-threatening in some cases. The team at Braxton Medical Clinic, LLC provides the support and guidance you need to overcome addiction and find healthier coping mechanisms.
