Your First and Last Mood treatment

Mood disorders are second to heart disease in their ability to cause disability worldwide. Comorbidity, the presence of two mental illnesses simultaneously, results in poorer treatment outcomes compared to treating each illness separate. Times for treatment are longer, moods worsen,  high costs are incurred, and dropout rates increase. Accessibility to qualified clinicians to administer evidenced-based treatments designed to treat comorbidity in mood disorders across geographical regions has been limited. Our clinically-driven program, Mood Matters, solves this problem by treating illness simultaneously. Faster treatment rates, lower costs, and less opportunity for relapse now exist.

Life-Changing

There is a stigma surrounding mental illness that makes it difficult for those suffering to come forward and seek treatment. But the truth is, getting the help you need is one of the most selfless things you can do for yourself. The road to recovery from any type of mental illness involves diligent work in therapy, but there are numerous life-changing benefits that come from Mood Matters. Here are a few.

You will have the tools to recognize the triggers of your depression and anxiety

When you start feeling depressed, sometimes you don’t even know where it came from. You just wake up one day feeling sad and hopeless, and have no idea how to lift yourself out of it. But knowing the triggers of your depression is key to being able to avoid them. If you know what sends you into a downward spiral, you can learn to sidestep the pressure and navigate your life in a way that keeps you out of that state as much as possible.

Your First and Last Mood treatment

You’ll understand why you feel the way you do, and learn techniques to cope.

One of the most frustrating things about dealing with depression and anxiety is not knowing why you feel the way you do. It’s often a mixture of sadness, hopelessness, and an overwhelming feeling of being trapped. You may feel like you don’t deserve to be happy, and that the bad things in your life are too much to handle. You may feel like nothing is going your way and that things will never get better. Your treatment program will help you understand why you feel this way, and give you coping mechanisms to work through the negative feelings and emotions.

You’ll be able to repair any broken relationships in your life.

When you’re in a depressed or anxious state, it can be incredibly difficult to see the people you love and care about, let alone repair broken relationships. But when you’re in treatment, you can ask your therapist for advice on how to approach the people in your life that need to be brought up to speed on your mental health.

You’ll be armed with knowledge on how to prevent a relapse in the future.

One of the scariest parts of any mental illness is the fact that there is a high chance of it happening again. You may have come to terms with the fact that you’re always going to experience some level of anxiety and/or depression, but you don’t have to accept that it has to be a life-long sentence. If you participate in a long-term treatment program, you will learn a lot about how to prevent a relapse in the future. You will learn what triggers your mental illness, and what to do when those things come up in your life. You will also learn ways to prevent or manage relapse when you’re in a state of anxiety or depression.
