How not to miss a mental illness

When the matter clearly assert itself in physical pain or clear rejection of blood tests, just to realize that it is time to be treated by a specialist. No one ever wants to hurt, but to lose one's health did not agree.

Everything is much more difficult when it comes to the mental well-being — you can endlessly deceive himself and convince the concerned relatives that "all is well". In fact, there are signs which clearly indicates the presence of a common man: it is necessary to seek professional help from a psychiatrist, it is possible serious pathology.

Here are some of them:

  • Notable changes to the habitual mode of food and sleep;
  • Inability to cope with problems before a feasible and daily activities;
  • Thinking or talking about suicide;
  • Strange or grandiose ideas;
  • A marked change in the surrounding nature;
  • Abuse of alcohol or drugs;
  • Excessive anger, hostility, extravagant behavior
  • Long apathy.


If you or a loved one, these symptoms appeared, should not assume that the case in real-life difficulties or in existing diseases of internal organs. Many serious psychiatric illness requiring long-term, professional, including — medical, treatment, often disguised as a variety of physical ailments. The way patients with these "masks" to a psychiatrist at times measured in years, they are numerous expensive inspections, various courses of "treatment" and even surgery. Often, patients spend precious time and when the mental pathology has developed against the vicissitudes of life. As a result, even a strong personality weaken and collapse.


According to statistics mental illnesses are the third in a series of other diseases, second only to cardiovascular disease and cancer. However, many mental disorders pose a threat not only to the patient's life, but also its surroundings. And they themselves are, alas, do not pass, so that the position of non-interference can be dangerous. For many working residents of cities gradually emerging violations are quite typical. If you do not pay attention to them, episodes of illness will lengthen and thicken.

In the yard in 2011, and should not, as before, and do not be afraid of psychiatrists trust these professionals. Modern therapists, advisors to private centers, attentive to each patient and each pick a treatment that not only would be effective in combating the disease, but also bring the least harm.

For some, the therapy will be sufficient properly selected mode of the day, which set aside the right place for recreation and physical activity (at least in the form of evening walks) and simple vitamins. However, since "easy escape" will be able only to those who did not launch an illness.

If time does not draw attention to the above symptoms, the problem will become pronounced form associated not just with some mental imbalance, and only with the pathological changes in the metabolic processes of the brain. At this stage the initial diagnosis is often joined by various dependencies — from information to alcohol.

In this case, the therapeutic effect will simultaneously on two fronts — it is necessary not only to drown out the symptoms of drugs, but also to teach the patient to respond properly, correctly assess situations in life to reduce the risk of exacerbations — and this will help to psychotherapy. Not necessarily in the usual form — as sessions with a therapist. Someone will be useful light therapy (exposure to light), someone — music. In any case, one tablets as mere talk, mental illness does not win.

The best thing to do — do not let the mental problems take its course. As any other illness, mental disorder very seriously reduce the quality of life, affecting both the patient and his environment. To prevent this, from a psychiatrist requires all professional skill and talent, and the patient only one thing — do not cheat yourself and in time to see a specialist.
