Caring for your mental health is a vital part of maintaining optimal wellness. As an expert in mental health disorders, Amr Beltagui, MD, uses the latest therapeutic techniques to transform your mental health and maximize your overall wellness.

Dr. Beltagui is a board-certified psychiatrist who continues to bring advanced innovations in psychiatry to help you better cope with conditions like depression and anxiety.

Understanding the importance of mental health

Your mental health has a direct link to how you think, how you behave, and how you feel. When you’re experiencing issues that affect your mental health, it can have a significant impact on your relationships, your job, and even your physical health. 

Unfortunately, there are a lot of myths and stigma surrounding mental health issues, and for this reason, many people don’t seek the treatment they need to thrive. With one in five adults in the United States dealing with a mental health issue, it’s never been more important to seek help when you need it.

Common mental health disorders

These are some of the most common mental health conditions that can affect adults throughout their life:

Depression

Depression is a mood disorder that causes persistent feelings of sadness and hopelessness, and a lack of self-worth.

Anxiety

Anxiety is a mental health condition that causes you to worry consistently or have illogical fears, even if the situation doesn’t call for those emotions.

Bipolar disorder

Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition where you experience periods of extremely high moods (manic episodes) followed by periods of extreme lows (depressive episodes).

Schizophrenia

Schizophrenia affects your cognitive function and how you view the world. This condition can cause hallucinations, delusions, and abnormal thought patterns that interfere with your quality of life and ability to function in the world.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

OCD causes you to experience cycles of compulsions and obsessions. This disorder affects how you think, act, and function in your everyday life.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

PTSD is a condition that typically develops after a traumatic event, such as an accident, domestic violence, or sexual abuse. You may be directly involved in or witness the event. PTSD-related symptoms include intrusive thoughts, mood swings, nightmares, and persistent irritability for weeks, months, or years after the incident.

Many mental health disorders can worsen over time without the right treatment. These conditions can also cause undue stress and decrease your quality and enjoyment of life.

How to transform your mental health

As a skilled psychiatrist, Dr. Beltagui offers comprehensive treatment plans that can transform your mental health as well as your physical health. He focuses on building a trusting relationship and creating a judgement-free zone where you feel safe sharing your thoughts and feelings.

Dr. Beltagui successfully uses a combination of medications and psychotherapy to help you overcome your mental health struggles and keep you in control of your symptoms. Psychotherapy is a form of talk therapy that helps you recognize your challenges and triggers and teaches you how to better cope with what you feel.

Through individual therapy sessions, Dr. Beltagui focuses on helping you thrive and live your best life. During each session, you learn how to let go of negative thoughts and habits to restore and stabilize good mental health.
