Mental health includes emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Maintaining or managing your mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Over the course of your life, if you experience mental health problems, your thinking, mood, and behavior could be affected. Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including:
· Biological factors, such as genes or brain chemistry
· Life experiences, such as trauma or abuse
· Family history of mental health problems
Mental health problems are common. People with mental health problems can get better and many recover completely. Therapy with a skilled and knowledgeable mental health provider can help individuals find solutions that will help them manage and even overcome the challenges. Thus, helping improve overall mental health wellness.
Integrated Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (IKAP) is also a treatment option for clients struggling with mental health issues that have become treatment resistant. IKAP is the combination of psychotherapy and an IV ketamine infusion. This process invites neuroplasticity (the ability to change and grow) within the brain’s neural connections. This allows clients the ability to process, embrace change, and focus on hope for the future.
