Mental Health Services & Counseling Q & A

When Should I Seek Treatment for a Mental Health Disorder?

If you experience symptoms of a mental health disorder that begin to interfere with your quality of life, it’s important that you schedule a diagnostic evaluation as soon as possible.

If left untreated, conditions like anxiety and depression can worsen and increase your risk for self-harming behaviors or suicidal thoughts or actions.

Common signs that may indicate you have a mental health condition include:

  • Sadness
  • Feelings of guilt
  • Excessive worry
  • Extreme mood swings
  • Unexplained weight changes
  • Loss of interest in usual activities


Children with mental health issues may also begin acting out at home and school or start showing other changes in their mood or behavior.

What Mental Health Services are Available?

The Southwest Family Physicians mental health professionals provide patient-focused services to address common mental health disorders and behavioral issues in children and adults.

The skilled team offers on-site diagnostic screenings to better understand the root cause of your symptoms and creates custom treatment plans that focus on improving and stabilizing your mental health.

Mental health counselors, Simone Crothers, LPC, and Scarlet Graham, LPC, are highly experienced in diagnosing and treating anxiety and depression. They also offer comprehensive care for other mental health issues and behavioral disorders, including resources for learning to cope with your symptoms.

What Treatments are Available for Mental Health Issues?

The Southwest Family Physicians counseling team works closely with the primary care team to determine which treatment is best for you. In many cases, they combine talk or behavior therapy with medications to keep your symptoms well-controlled.

The strong partnership between the counselors and primary care providers ensures you have the highest level of consistent care. The Southwest Family Physicians team works closely with you to monitor how effective treatment is and learn what other resources would help improve your quality of life.

Southwest Family Physicians also offer on-site hypnotherapy sessions. Hypnotherapy involves guided hypnosis with a trained professional to help you achieve a relaxed state of mind and address anxieties and phobias. This type of therapy can also be beneficial for improving your sleep quality and helping you break bad habits, like smoking and drug use. 

While the symptoms of a mental health disorder can feel overwhelming, they are manageable with the right care plan.

If you or members of your family are experiencing symptoms of a mental health disorder, schedule an evaluation today, by phone or using the online booking feature.
