Mental Health Disorders

Are you or a loved one suffering from mental illness? Mental health care is something everyone should make a priority, but for those with mental health disorders, it is crucial. Nearly half of all people in the United States will be diagnosed with a mental health disorder at some point in their lifetime. Although common, mental health disorders can often be misdiagnosed or left undiagnosed entirely.  Here at Lighthouse Recovery, we diagnose and treat multiple mental health disorders as well as co-occurring disorders to ensure you are safe, medicated if necessary, and recovering. Some of the more common mental health treatment programs and disorders we treat include bipolar disorder, eating disorders, generalized anxiety, major depressive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and schizophrenia.

Attachment Disorder

The bond with a primary caregiver in childhood is crucial for developing emotional connections and impacts future relationships. Attachment disorder, often diagnosed in children’s health care but rare, primarily affects those with inconsistent caregivers, such as those in foster care or awaiting adoption. It can result from childhood trauma, including abuse or neglect, leading to unhealthy attachment behaviors. Loving parental environments typically prevent this disorder. Read More.

This condition is characterized by episodes of mania which are then preceded by depression.

Those feelings of embarrassment and humiliation are a part of the shameful experience. And realistically, everyone has experienced shame once or twice – some more than others. But then again, shame isn’t necessarily a good thing. At its core, shame is the feeling of being inadequate or wrong. It’s a direct injury to a person’s ego and can stem from an internal source or be caused by an external factor. And while many of us will feel shame at some point in our lives, others are controlled by their shame, paving the way to various mental health problems. Read More.

Spectrum Disorder (Autism)

Spectrum disorders, including autism (ASD), affect children and can continue into adulthood, impairing social engagement and daily functions. With varying severity, these disorders manifest uniquely in each individual. ASD is the most prevalent, affecting 1 in every 160 children globally. Despite the range in symptom intensity, contemporary research enables medical professionals to offer effective therapies, enhancing patients’ ability to live independently. Read More.

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

The condition of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) develops in those who have experienced one or more events of severe shock, fear, or danger. Enduring a traumatic situation can cause one’s fight-or-flight response to go haywire. Not only does one experience fear at that moment, but that terror often lasts even in situations without any danger. This issue can lead to unpleasant symptoms such as night terrors, insomnia, anxiety, or even anger and violence. Read More.

Eating Disorders

These disorders include a variety of severe and even fatal illnesses associated with people’s eating behaviors, thoughts, and emotions. The usual signs of an eating disorder involve obsessions with food, body weight, and physical shape. Common eating disorders include anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge-eating disorder.


Although often misunderstood by mainstream media, schizophrenia is a mental health disorder affecting how a person thinks, feels, and acts. Schizophrenia often leads someone to struggle to comprehend what is real and what isn’t. Without proper treatment, the symptoms lead to struggles with everyday activities such as work, school, maintaining relationships, and being independent.

Mental health could sometimes seem like a catchphrase people use to refer to dealing with stress or uneasiness, but the subject of mental health is much more complex than that. Yes, simple steps such as taking time off work, relaxing, and practicing self-care all aid in improving your mental health. However, mental health encompasses broader issues related to overall emotional, psychological, and social well-being.


Understanding Mental Health

Your mental health impacts how you think, feel, and behave. Mental well-being determines how you handle stress, trauma, relationships, and more. With mental health being such an integral aspect of your life, it is essential to take it seriously and nurture it, especially if you’re facing a mental health disorder. Your mental health not only impacts many facets of your life but is also influenced by several internal and external factors such as:

  • Biological factors, including genes or brain chemistry
  • Life experiences, such as trauma or abuse
  • Family history of mental health problems
