MENTAL HEALTH AND WELLNESS FOR VETERANS
At Solara Mental Health we treat a broad array of mental health disorders in San Diego that include the following:
Distorted thinking occurs when one suffers from repetitive, inaccurate, damaging thoughts. This type of thinking is symptomatic of numerous mental health disorders, including anxiety and personality disorders, among other. These distorted, inaccurate thoughts seem completely logical and truthful to the person thinking them, when in reality they are actually inaccurate and illogical.
At Solara Mental Health, we understand that identifying, addressing and correcting distorted thinking patterns is a vital to the healing process. Our psychiatric facility’s expertly trained clinicians are highly capable of treating those who experience distorted thinking. [More]
Sexual Identity Conflict
Sexual identity issues occur when one is confused or conflicted by his or her sexual desires, sexual identity, sexual practices as well as other disorders. These conflicts are often intense and exacerbated by societal stigmas or family/peer pressure. Unresolved, these sexual identity conflicts can lead to feelings of self-loathing, hopelessness and isolation, as well as anxiety and depression. These feelings are especially acute when combined with a co-occurring mental health disorder.
We know how vital it is for individuals to find congruence in and peace with her or his sexual identity. Our program treats those suffering from sexual identity issues and conflicts. [More]
Failure to Launch
We often treat veterans who come to us from other mental health treatment facilities where their outcome was not as successful as anticipated or desired. Finding themselves returning to old, destructive patterns and practices (which in many instances have intensified and become more acute) they desperately seek help and treatment that will last. Failure to launch in the context of psychiatric treatment is defined as the lack of achieving success or demonstrable improvement in mental health and wellness. This often creates many of the following conditions:
- Feelings of frustration, disappointment, and hopelessness
- Lack of trust in self and the therapeutic process
- Decreased self-confidence
- Poor health habits
- Inability to form and maintain healthy relationships
- Lack of motivation in other areas of life, including education, work, and spirituality
- Decreased sense of purpose
We treat those suffering from failure to launch in many contexts, which most often starts with successful mental health treatment. We have customized our program to help veterans free themselves from feelings of frustration and hopelessness, and realize lasting recovery. [More]
Phase of Life Issues
Most major life changes come in myriad forms, such as illness, death of a loved one, divorce, retirement, and the transition to being an “empty-nester.” Individuals display all manner of reactions to these changes like increased emotionality, persistent grief, uncharacteristic anger, hopelessness and aimlessness. Unresolved, these feelings can have a highly negative affect on the sufferer’s ability to function in normal activities. Moreover, relationships with friends and family often become strained and damaged. And finally, the development of mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression occur.
Our psychiatric program treats those, who exhibit these debilitating and destructive phase of life responses and behaviors. Our ‘life change’ experts provide intensive and integrative therapy, education, and support that is crucial to overcoming these issues. [More]
