Mental Health Q & A

What is mental health?

Mental health is a part of your well-being that influences how you act, feel, and behave. Maintaining balanced mental health is essential for your decision-making abilities, interpersonal skills, and overall quality of life. It dictates how you process stress, interact with others, and enjoy life. 


With an experienced psychiatric team and on-site testing, Tru-Health Urgent Care can provide the quality mental health care you deserve under one roof.

What are the most common mental health concerns?

The psychiatric team at Tru-Health Urgent Care diagnoses and manages multiple mental health concerns, including:

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is a common mental health disorder that causes difficult concentration, inattention, hyperactivity, and other symptoms that affect thoughts and behaviors. While usually diagnosed during childhood, ADHD symptoms can also affect adults.

Depression and anxiety

Depression and anxiety are the two most common mental health conditions that affect children, teenagers, and adults. While depression causes sadness and hopelessness, anxiety can lead to persistent worry, fear, and dread. Depression and anxiety share some overlapping symptoms, and many people have both conditions.

Bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder causes intense mood swings. Individuals with this mental health disorder experience periods of elation and energy (mania) and severe depression. There are several different types of bipolar disorder, which require comprehensive testing to diagnose.

Post-traumatic stress disorder

Post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, is a severe anxiety disorder that develops after a traumatic event. Flashbacks, depression, and nightmares from PTSD can diminish your quality of life.


At Tru-Health Urgent Care, the team also works with patients suffering from neurodevelopmental disorders, schizophrenia, impulsive or disruptive behavior, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD).

What treatments does mental health care include?

With a holistic, integrative approach to care, the team at Tru-Health Urgent Care focuses on uncovering the root cause of your mental health struggles before recommending treatment. The team performs a comprehensive psychological evaluation, then designs your individualized treatment plan.


Along with medication, the team may recommend psychotherapy, which branches off into several different types of therapy. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), the most common type, can help you identify unhelpful behaviors and create coping strategies to respond more positively to stress in your life.
