Mental Health Rehab
Mental illness is the leading cause of disability in America. In fact, this affects tens of millions of people each year. Mental health rehab is the restoration of the well being of a person with a mental or emotional disorder. Furthermore, while many mental health issues can be treated outside of rehab, severe psychiatric conditions may require inpatient care. Meanwhile, serious mental health conditions that may call for rehab include:
- Major depression
- Bipolar disorder
- Dual diagnosis disorder
- Postpartum psychosis
When is Rehab Needed?
Mental health rehabilitation is needed when outpatient treatment is no longer effective. Therefore, rehabilitation is necessary when a person is:
- A danger to themselves or others
- In need of stabilization of their thoughts and feelings
- Experiencing hallucinations or delusions
- In need of stabilization of their medication
- Not taking their medication
- Unable to cope with their daily lives
- Being neglectful in their self-care
- Exhibiting behavior that concerns others
Types of Rehabilitation Therapies
Once admitted to rehab, stabilization of the patient’s conditions requires an individualized approach. In fact, therapies that can be used in rehab include:
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
- Motivational Interviewing
- Strategic Therapy
- Gestalt Therapy
- Humanistic Therapy
- Experiential Therapy
- Strategic Family Therapy
- Play Therapy
- Integrative Functional Medicine
- Reality Therapy
The Goal of Compassionate Rehab
With the help of psychiatric care, medication, 24-hour support, structure, nutrition, sleep, therapy, and recreation, mental illness becomes mental wellness. In fact, Mental illness reduces self-efficacy (the ability to problem solve through life’s unexpected events) and human connection. Therefore, treating mental illness requires new patterns of behavior and thinking. Also, in rehab, patients learn to live independently with their diagnosis. In fact, dignity replaces shame and problem-solving overpowers isolation, allowing patients to return to their lives with self-efficacy.
