Mental Health Q&A

What is mental health?

Mental health refers to the well-being of your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Your mental health is crucial because it determines your ability to build and support healthy relationships, cope with daily challenges, and make positive life decisions.

Your mental health also shares a two-way connection with your physical health. One affects the other, and your experiences, lifestyle, and genetics influence both.

The professional team at DuPage Psychiatric Care PLLC provides holistic care that nurtures and heals the many facets of your mental health.

Who can benefit from mental health care?

Mental health care can help you through many challenges that may occur during your lifetime. People benefit from therapy when they feel stuck and can’t make a major decision or when dealing with stress, anger, or self-esteem issues.

You may need help navigating a separation from your partner or supporting a child with behavioral or mental health problems.
