I often face some questions about when we should go to a psychologist. For example, when going to a psychologist?, do I need psychotherapy? Who is a clinical or counseling Psychologist? Etc.
It’s not always easy to know when to seek professional help for our mental health. We may feel like we should be able to handle our problems on our own, or we may be embarrassed to admit that we need help. However, there are certain times when it is appropriate to seek help from a psychologist or psychiatrist. If you are experiencing the following, it may be time to seek professional help.
When will I go to a psychologist?
It’s not possible to tell when you will go to a psychologist. Anyone can go to the psychologist if he wants to share his feelings and want someone to listen to his words. As a psychologist, we say that if anyone feels-
- extensive sad
- can’t sleep well
- having a problem while working
- personal relations are going bad
- don’t feel alright or
- too much tension is killing the peace.
At that time you can go to a psychologist.
What is the mental health condition in the contemporary world?
In research of the world health organization (WHO) shows, “One in four people in the world will be affected by psychological or neurological disorders where 450 million people are currently suffering from mental health problems”.
As a third-world country, it has been seen that the Indian sub-content adult people have some mental disorders. In another research, it has been seen that about 18% of the people in Bangladesh under 18 suffering from a mental illness. This means a large number of people in Bangladesh need mental health treatment.
Outside of this, a large number of people whose mental health illness is not acute. These people can also share their problems with a professional psychologist who will listen and solve them.
When will I understand that the people I know myself suffer and need to go to a psychologist/psychiatrist?
Mental illness doesn’t come in one day. The thinking of people is changing gradually. We start thinking about something which naturally affects our emotions. If I think of myself as an awful person, my feelings will be sad and terrible, and the behaviors will follow the same. I may be excited and cannot focus on anything, or I may frustrate about everything, or I may get too much anxiety.
If someone thinks about something he never used to think about before, he is doing some work he never used to do before. If you experience the same, you must go to a psychologist.
You might need to take help from clinical or counseling or other mental health professionals in the above circumstance. So now you may think to whom I will go.
After identifying a severe psychological/emotional problem, where can you go?
You can get psychological treatment from a psychiatrist or a mental doctor. And they can give you medicine according to your problem. Besides, they can also provide you with other treatments like psychotherapy.
You may also go to a clinical/counseling psychologist. You can know the activities between psychologist, psychiatrist, and counselor and their fees here.
What are the activities of clinical or counseling Psychologists with people with a mental health conditions?
Clinical or Counseling Psychologist never gives you medicines. Clinical or counseling psychologists are those people who work with counseling or psychotherapy through talking or discussion. Within a systematic procedure, they will try to identify the problem and provide a proper solution through counseling/psychotherapy.
If you feel to talk with a mental health professional or see someone around you who needs mental health help, don’t be late and go to the nearest mental health help center. After getting proper psychotherapy, you can get back to your golden days.
These days in government and nongovernment hospitals, these services are available. There have the psychiatrist, clinical psychologist, counseling psychologist, and so many others.
