With the estimation that a quarter of people, in Scotland, suffer from mental health issues, it’s clear to see that an unfortunate rise of diagnoses has taken place.

However, through such an increase, many are still going untreated, where denial, the fear of stigmatisation, and a lack of awareness play significant parts in lowering acceptance.

However, here at Nova Recovery, we understand the necessity of completing mental health treatments, down to the consequences of an undiagnosed, misdiagnosed or untreated cognitive impairment. Down to such outlooks, we’re here with a duty of care to hopefully motivate many individuals from Scotland to consider and accept professional help.

It’s reasonable to see why, this far, you may have struggled to come to terms with the fact that you could be suffering mentally. It’s such a taboo subject, yet the commonalities of such diagnoses are high.

By visiting our website, we hope that you’re ready to take some small steps to open up, to break the silence on mental health, and uptake available support. Here’s the type of evidence-based mental health treatments in Scotland that you can access through our centre. Based in Largs, we can help you remain in your home country while working to improve and manage your mental health.

The dangers of undiagnosed and untreated mental health issues

Unfortunately, many individuals are going about their daily lives with undiagnosed and untreated mental health issues. Those who are experiencing such denial, ignorance or a lack of understanding are however putting themselves at risk of many long-term problems.

Mental health issues should be taken seriously. Once negative symptoms are encountered, on a consistent basis, the option of professional support should be considered. This is down to the fact that enabling behaviours, feelings and outlooks can materialise into even stronger issues, such as substance abuse, suicidal thoughts, self-harm and a dual diagnosis.

As the commonality of such issues is high, many believe that symptoms of mental health are now a natural, yet uncomfortable response to everyday stressors. Many believe that symptoms can be independently managed for the long-term. While others believe that mental health issues will disappear once other areas of life improve.

Unfortunately, down to the footprint that such issues cause in the brain, once such habits and behaviours are adopted, it can be difficult to flick a switch, and hope for the best.

Realistically, all mental health conditions should be medically diagnosed and treated, to increase quality of life. This step is encouraged to all, no matter how mild or new symptoms of depression, anxiety or further personality disorders may be for you.

By ignoring such recommendations, you will be aggravating your symptoms through your relationships, your environments, through your everyday responsibilities, which can result in reduced stability and increased impairment. Instead, consider mental health treatments in Scotland, to elevate the quality of your reality.

Evidence-based mental health treatment

Via our offering of mental health treatments in Scotland, you can expect to complete a mixture of the below, all depending on the symptoms that you’re encountering. A personal treatment programme will be promoted to help you ease and manage your symptoms.

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) 
Standing as one of our therapeutic talking therapies, CBT is a highly utilised treatment when aiming to promote mental health recovery. It helps our clients digest their feelings, understand their responses, and adapt such responses to reach a stable and rational outlook. It’s an effective tool when considering the majority of mental health conditions down to its adaptability.

Understandably, for some, prescription medications come across as invasive. However, they are necessary in some cases to promote mood stabilisation, to increase chemical restoration, and to provide respite from symptoms. Antidepressants and mood stabilisers are the most commonly prescribed medications via rehab.

Talking therapies 
Opening up is imperative in order to overcome the restraints of such emotional responses. Through individual therapy, family therapy support group settings, and counselling, talking therapies will stand as a protective mental health treatment to complete.

Lifestyle, stress and anxiety management  
Poor lifestyle choices and stress susceptibility can both induce the likes of depression, anxiety and bipolar. Down to this high correlation, lifestyle and stress management techniques will be promoted, where appropriate to understand future choices and their impacts.

Wellbeing recommendations 
Accepting a range of mental health treatments in Scotland will be recommended, to work towards holistic recovery and maintenance. However, in tandem with such support, it’s also important that you work on your well-being.

Your routine, interactions, responsibilities and outlooks, linked to your lifestyle can all influence symptoms of mental health issues. By understanding this, and by making healthy changes, you’ll have the chance to not only understand your triggers but also reduce their impacts for the future. This is something we will cover here at Nova Recovery, to prepare you for mental health maintenance.
