Mental Health Q & A

What is Mental Health?

Mental health involves your emotional, psychological, and social well-being, and how you think, feel, and act. Mental health determines how you handle stress, make everyday choices, relate to others in your social networks, and more.

If you have mental health issues, your thinking, cognition, and behavior could be affected. Many factors play a role in the development of mental health conditions, such as:

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


Mental health care is the branch of medicine that revolves around caring for those with mental health problems.

What are the Signs of a Mental Health Condition?

Early signs of a mental health problem or condition include:

  • Sleeping difficulties
  • Having low or no energy
  • Social isolation
  • Feelings of worthlessness or helplessness
  • Unexplained aches and pains
  • Smoking, drinking, or using drugs more than usual


If you have a mental health condition, you might also feel unusually forgetful, upset, or angry, and find yourself frequently fighting with friends and family. You might even hear voices or have persistent memories or thoughts that won’t leave your head.

You might be unable to perform daily tasks, such as getting to school or work or taking care of your children.

The symptoms of mental health conditions vary depending on the individual and the type of condition. Mental illnesses can be occasional and brief or long-lasting and chronic.

Some of the most common mental health conditions include anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder.

When Should I See a Doctor About My Mental Health?

If you’re experiencing any symptoms, thoughts, emotions, or other signs of mental health conditions that are negatively impacting your daily activities and quality of life, you should visit Prominis Medical Services for an evaluation and treatment.
