Signs That You Require A Mental Health Treatment Program
Treatment Programs at URP Behavioral Health
At URP Behavioral Health, we provide the following treatment programs to ensure that all patients receive individualized care.
A core foundation of URP Behavioral Health is the intensive inpatient treatment program. It’s a comprehensive approach that requires patients to live in the therapeutic environment for the duration of their treatment plan. It ensures that patients are under supervision and receive constant support from professionals who understand their needs.
Inpatient treatment is preferable for a range of conditions like bipolar disorder or borderline personality disorder. It includes individual, group, and family therapy to ensure that you get a supportive treatment environment and build better coping skills. Other treatment services are also provided, such as nonverbal and alternative therapies. Moreover, you can also receive dual diagnosis treatment for your drug and alcohol addiction.
Since young adulthood is the peak age of onset for most mental disorders, therapeutic intervention at this stage can be highly beneficial for positive outcomes. It’s why young adults between the ages of 18 to 25 experience a higher prevalence of mental illness. Almost 11.4 percent of the group faces a mental disorder that impairs functions and they’re far less likely to receive treatment than middle-aged and older adults.
At this age, young adults are vulnerable to high risk behaviors, such as alcohol and substance abuse, that increase their risk of developing mental disorders. Additionally, many of them fail to seek appropriate treatment due to negative attitudes toward help-seeking, embarrassment, and stigma. It’s why they require specialized care by professionals who considers these perceptions in formulating an approach.
As many as 1 in 10 men experience mental illnesses such as anxiety or major depression, but less than half of them seek treatment. Meanwhile, most men prefer to deal with it on their own, which causes their symptoms go untreated. Experts agree that this happens because stigma is a barrier that prevents men from getting professional support and care. Men have a higher prevalence rate of disorders like substance use disorder, while conditions like depression can go unnoticed because of stigma.
Moreover, men face different types of stressors than women, which can worsen symptoms. These include gender stereotypes, loss of employment, relationship issues, and financial struggles. Therefore, it’s important men can receive treatment from professionals who acknowledge their struggles and consider them when devising a treatment plan.
Research shows that there are areas where women experience disparities with regard to the risk, manifestation, and prevalence of mental disorders. One such area is exposure to trauma because women who go through trauma have a greater risk of developing PTSD than their male counterparts. This happens because women are more likely to experience traumatic events at a young age, which has lasting effects on their mental health.
Similarly, women have a higher prevalence rate of depressive episodes than men, and they’re more likely to experience eating disorders like anorexia and bulemia nervosa. Although women are more likely to seek professional treatment for mental health disorders, they may struggle with internalized self-stigma that prevents them from opening up about their struggles. It creates the need for specialized care by professionals who have extensive experience in treating mental disorders in women.
