Providing Care When You Need It Most
If you’re experiencing a medical emergency, please call 911 immediately.
There comes a point in time when each one of us will need a helping hand, especially when it comes to our mental health. In some instances, that helping hand may be needed sooner rather than later. And that’s OK.
As we continue to eliminate the stigma (negative and often unfair beliefs) surrounding mental health and begin to view it as a legitimate medical issue, it’s crucial to provide access to much-needed care.
When it comes to mental health, some situations need to be addressed immediately. These situations could be caused by anxiety, depression, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and more.
Crisis Care Services When You Need Them
Here at SUN Behavioral Health Columbus, we are available 24/7 to meet your urgent needs. No one should be alone as they recover from a mental health crisis. We have a team of dedicated professionals committed to improving your health. We work alongside hospitals, doctors, schools, and social service agencies to help you get to where you need to be.
What you’re experiencing is normal. We’ve found that 43 million adults in the United States experience a mental health disorder every year.
While today may be challenging, always remember a new day lies ahead. You are worthy. You are cared for. You are loved.
Here’s How We Can Help
Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. They can even affect each other. A mental health disorder can dramatically alter your life, which can be both frustrating and frightening.
While mental health disorders are common, in some instances, you may need professional help right away. If you’re experiencing any of the following, you’re advised to seek professional care as soon as possible:
- Hearing voices or believing things that are untrue
- Thoughts of hurting yourself or others
- Smoking, drinking, or misusing drugs more than you used to
- Severe mood swings that cause problems
- Feeling helpless or hopeless
- Having thoughts you can’t get out of your head
- Inability to take care of things for work or school
- Inability to take care of yourself, and if you’re a parent, take care of your children
Don’t Overlook a Mental Health Emergency
Even if you’re not experiencing any of these, trust your instincts and listen to the people around you. If you think you need urgent help for a mental health disorder, do not hesitate to reach out for help.
At SUN Columbus, we used evidence-based treatments to get you where you need to be. You will have access to cognitive behavioral therapy, which is one of the most common forms of talk therapy for mental health disorders. This form of therapy focuses on addressing unwanted and negative thought patterns.
Cognitive behavioral therapy sessions will be led by a therapist who will guide you through your journey. You will be taught how to better manage your mental health disorder and build confidence that will be there to reassure you that you have what it takes to overcome.
You may also be given medication to help manage symptoms of your mental health disorder. Depending on your individual diagnosis, a doctor will determine the right medication for you.
Remember, take things one day at a time. This isn’t an overnight solution, but along the way, you’ll be able to celebrate successes and victories. We know you have the strength to get to a point where you’re mentally healthy and fulfilled.
