Conditions that Impact the Mind
For a long time, it seemed as though physical health was put on a pedestal compared to mental health. But the tides have slowly shifted, and our society has become more aware of and accepting to talk about mental wellbeing. Some people, like the ones we treat at DiscoveryMD, are more prone to having a mental health disorder than others. In fact, 1 in 5 U.S. adults experienced a mental health disorder in 2020*. These disorders can feel all-consuming for those who must live with them. Let’s explore a few types of mental health disorders to give a better understanding of what they are and how to cope.
