Healing does not respond well to shortcuts — Speak to an Inpatient Facility 

Mental illness is a non-discriminating process that affects individuals from all walks of life. Behavioral instability to the point of moderate or severe distress can be caused by a number of contributing factors: trauma, addiction, genetics, biology, thought process.  Individuals who suffer from behavioral disorders experience moderate to severe distress and impairment, requiring clinical screening, assessment, guidance and time. Stabilizing Mental Illness Requires an Inpatient Setting.


Self-acceptance, self-trust and self-compassion

Patterns of thoughts, physical health, emotions, spirituality, financial stability and overall wholeness within oneself and with humanity develop over time, so time is the first ingredient to heal. The second ingredient, compassion. Self-acceptance, self-trust and self-compassion develop in the face of distress with the right education and support. Compassion towards oneself and receiving compassion from others are distinctive components that will determine the trajectory of mental well-being. Third, accurate diagnosis is just as important as compassion and time. Diagnosis is a bit more challenging in the realm of mental illness. As one heals, more historical facts and details come to the surface. Additionally, as reasoning improves, self-awareness becomes more natural and accurate.


What is Proper Treatment

D’Amore’s Inpatient residential facilities provide a comfortable environment for the recovery of the mind, body, and soul.


Common interruptions

The most common interruptions to mental well-being include depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, compulsivity, and schizophrenia. However, there are over 200 different forms of mental illness. Also, the disruption of healthy mental function can be a scary and confusing time for individuals and those affected, such as family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, even community members like fire and police! The importance of proper treatment is the defining factor between remission and further complication, short-term and long-term. Fortunately, most cognitive, mood or behavioral illnesses are successfully treated with a combination of a.) psychotropic medication, b.) psychotherapy and c.) environmental stability. Also, always remember, time is key. Healing does not respond well to shortcuts.


Evolution of psychiatry

The evolution of psychiatry and mental health care has provided various modern treatment modalities, which aid in healing distressed functioning. Psychotropic medications and psychotherapy are the two most common and effective treatment approaches. However, therapeutic methods, such as self-help support groups, process and psychoeducation groups, health and wellness education, and goal-setting build individual self-acceptance, self-trust, and self-compassion.
