Mental Health

What indicates that I might need mental health assistance?

  • Panic attacks
  • Problems with attention and concentration
  • Troubling thoughts
  • Feelings of sadness and hopelessness

What is the benefit of seeking mental health care from a family physician?

Dr. Morgan-Evans has expertise in providing both physical and mental health support. She is a trusted physician with knowledge of your family and any possible issues affecting your mood and mental condition. You may find it easier to talk to her about your concerns regarding your psychological state or the psychiatric issues of a family member.

You may find it hard to trust a counselor or psychiatrist you’ve just met. It can take years to develop the trust to speak openly with them. Many patients find it easier to talk to someone with whom they’ve already developed a relationship.

How are psychiatric issues evaluated?

Dr. Morgan-Evans does a complete review of your mental and physical health. She may perform blood tests and psychological tests too. Dr. Morgan-Evans looks for family tendencies, medications, past experiences, and physical conditions that can play a role in your psychological issues.

What psychiatric treatments are available?

At High Point Medical Clinic, you may experience a combination of therapies that include lifestyle changes, medications, and talk therapy. Talk therapy can help you work through a variety of emotional difficulties and symptoms. Sometimes you just need a neutral party to talk to.

Medications can help treat mental disorders by correcting imbalances in your brain chemistry. If Dr. Morgan-Evans prescribes medication for you, she offers regular follow-up to ensure it’s doing its job and not causing uncomfortable side effects. The types of medications available include:

  • Stimulants
  • Antidepressants
  • Antipsychotics
  • Sedatives
  • Mood stabilizers

The type of medication you receive depends on your condition. You may benefit from more than one type of medication, too.
