World class mental health treatment at Priory
A mental health condition is a disorder that ultimately has a negative impact on an individual’s thoughts, mood, behaviour and their overall levels of psychological and emotional wellbeing. Mental health is unique to all of us; it is an ever-evolving, dynamic phenomenon, that has the potential to fluctuate in response to various events and situations that we encounter over the course of our lives.
It is normal for everyone to feel worried, sad, upset, or experience other difficult emotions from time-to-time, in response to different life events and situations. For most people though, these feelings tend to be only temporary in nature, and are often resolved naturally without causing any long-term problems. However, for some individuals, these negative emotions can become worse over time, resulting in what can become a debilitating mental health condition, such as depression, anxiety, stress or obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), which can ultimately have a detrimental effect on a person’s wellbeing and quality of life. An estimated 1 in 4 people in the UK experience a mental health problem each year, with 1 in 6 people experiencing one of the more common mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression or stress.
