Stress, anxiety, depression, panic disorder and other behavioral health issues are difficult to manage without making lifestyle changes. And they are not uncommon. According to the American Psychological Association’s stress survey, 66 percent of people regularly feel the physical effects of stress and 63 percent experience psychological symptoms. Women are twice as likely as men to develop certain mental health conditions like depression, eating disorders and panic disorders.
Regardless of whether you have developed these conditions over time or they have been triggered by a stressful event, there are self-care techniques that can help you feel better. If these techniques are not working for you and your symptoms disrupt relationships or daily activities, it is time to seek help. Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTS) can help you manage your feelings and teach you techniques to help you live a more satisfying and productive life.
