Mental Wellness

Mental illnesses are as real as any other illness. Quite often depression and anxiety are said to be, “all in your head” and this is not true. Many times, you cannot just get over it. If you have, or think you may have, clinically diagnosable depression or anxiety, please come in and speak with one of our caring practitioners. We want to be there for you in your pursuit of happiness.

We offer comprehensive treatment
plans for the following:

Anxiety

It can be normal to feel occasional anxiety in life but if it’s stopping you from doing day to day activities it might be something that needs to be evaluated.

If you are experiencing symptoms like:

  • Feelings of panic, dread, or danger
  • Nervousness, restlessness, or being tense
  • Rapid heart rate
  • Trembling or muscle twitching
  • Rapid breathing, or hyperventilation
  • Insomnia
  • Weakness and lethargy
  • Digestive or gastrointestinal problems, such as gas, constipation, or diarrhea
  • Singular focus on worries within one’s life

Then you may want to see us at Vista Healthcare. Anxiety is a real thing. It is as real as any visibly physical ailment. If you are struggling with anxiety, follow up or call Vista Healthcare for more information at 208-881-0902.

Depression

 

Depression is a real disorder that causes a persistent feeling of sadness and loss of interest. It affects how you feel, think, and behave and can lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. You may have a hard time preforming normal day-to-day activity. Sometimes you may even feel as if life isn't worth living.

 

Depression feels like more than just a bout of the blues, it isn't a weakness and you can't simply "get over it.” Depression can be very difficult to live with, but don't get discouraged. Instead, seek help from one of our caring practitioners.

 

Symptoms can occur most of the day, nearly every day and may include:

 

·         Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness

·         Angry outbursts, irritability or frustration, even over small matters

·         Loss of interest or pleasure in most or all normal activities, such as sex, hobbies or sports

·         Sleep disturbances, including insomnia or sleeping too much

·         Tiredness and lack of energy, so even small tasks take extra effort

·         Reduced appetite and weight loss or increased cravings for food and weight gain

·         Anxiety, agitation or restlessness

·         Slowed thinking, speaking or body movements

·         Feelings of worthlessness or guilt, fixating on past failures or self-blame

·         Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things

·         Frequent or recurrent thoughts of death, suicidal thoughts, suicide attempts or suicide

·         Unexplained physical problems, such as back pain or headaches

Symptoms usually are severe enough to cause problems in daily activities, such as work, school, social activities or relationships with others. People may also feel generally miserable or unhappy without really knowing why.

Please do not let depression take control of your life. There is hope. If you are struggling with any of these symptoms, then call us at 208-881-0902.
