An accurate diagnosis is crucial for effective mental health treatment for several reasons. First and foremost, it enables our team to personalize elements of treatment plans, including treatment types and duration, as well as medications prescribed. It also cuts downs on time wasted on unproductive courses of treatment and empowers patients to engage in treatment by helping them understand why they think and feel the way they do.
In the current landscape of mental health treatment, most providers take a top-down approach, making the initial diagnosis and then focusing almost solely on how to change one’s thinking.
At Enterhealth, we turn that model on its head, starting with identifying all the root causes of a mental health condition – whether they are mental, physical, emotional – so we can begin healing core issues from the bottom up.
