Mental Health Q & A

What causes mental health issues?

Mental health problems are common among adults. About one in five people have a mental illness, and it often begins in childhood. Though many factors can contribute to the development of mental illnesses, some common causes are:

  • Genetics: The risk rises if a family member has a mental illness, and specific genes may predispose you to develop one.
  • Environmental stressors: Exposure to alcohol, drugs, stressful life events, and other factors can trigger symptoms.
  • Brain chemistry: The natural makeup of your brain chemicals can impair proper functioning and cause mental health issues.

Mental health issues can also develop as a result of trauma, such as being abused or witnessing violence. A lack of healthy, supportive relationships, having a challenging medical condition, or experiencing acute periods of stress may also trigger or exacerbate mental health problems.

At Harmony Health MD, your physician takes a holistic view of your physical and mental well-being to determine what treatment methods will best suit your needs. They strive to create harmony and balance in your life by addressing different factors that may impact your energy, your mood, your relationships, your stress, and more.

Your treatment plan may include:

  • A comprehensive stressor analysis
  • A referral to a psychologist or psychiatrist
  • Recommended activities for improved mental function (such as yoga and meditation)
  • Medication to supplement the healing process

Each patient is unique, and your treatment plan is adjusted based on your needs.
