Mental illness affects us all; approximately 20 percent of people experience it at any given point in time. We all have known a family member, friend or neighbor with mental illness, whether it is anxiety, depression, ADHD or any number of other conditions. Often, the stigma associated with mental illness prevents people from seeking treatment, which usually results in a worsening of the condition. Having a mental illness is not your fault, does not define you and does not mean you are a weak person; instead, it is a group of treatable medical conditions backed by science.
Mental illness can impair your ability to function in multiple areas: with friends and family, at school or work, in your hobbies and in your passions in life. It can significantly decrease your quality of life.
How do I know if my child should see a psychiatrist?
Parents often wonder if their child’s behavior is normal for their age or if it is “just a phase” that they are going through.
Do you see big changes in your child’s level of functioning in school or at home? Is his/her mood persistently down, irritable or angry? Go with your instincts and intuition if something doesn’t feel right. If your child is struggling at home or in the school environment, it’s probably for a reason and it’s a good idea to talk to the school and get their perspective.
If the behavior is something that persists, consider consulting a psychiatrist.
Telehealth, also called telemedicine, allows health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose and treat patients in remote locations using telecommunications technology. The patient has a “virtual office visit” with the provider via secure and confidential channels through the use of computer cameras and speakers.
Telehealth provides a convenient way for patients living in rural areas to obtain care that otherwise would require traveling long distances in potentially poor weather conditions.
The initial visit should be in person in order to establish a relationship between provider and patient. Subsequent visits may be conducted via telemedicine if appropriate.
Telehealth is useful for all ages, except very young patients (under the age of 5) who benefit from personal interactions with the provider.
Logan Health Behavioral Health – Whitefish accepts private insurance, Medicare and Medicaid and provides a sliding fee scale to help those in need, whether they have insurance or not. The sliding fee discount program is designed to provide essential medical services regardless of the patient’s ability to pay, and discounts are offered based upon household income and size. A sliding fee schedule is used to calculate the basic discount and is updated each year using the federal poverty.
