Mental Health Q&A

What is mental health?

Mental health describes your emotional, social, and psychological health needs and has an impact on your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors.

Several mental health issues can develop throughout your life, especially if you have a family history of mental disorders. You might also be at increased risk for mental health problems due to:

  • Trauma
  • Genetics
  • Brain chemistry
  • Life experiences
  • Environmental factors

At JM Psychiatry Inc, Dr. Murdock specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and ongoing management of conditions that affect your mental health and your overall quality of life.

When should I schedule a mental health consultation?

You should schedule a mental health consultation at JM Psychiatry Inc if you have bothersome symptoms like anxious thoughts, persistent sadness/hopelessness, or if you experience unexpected changes in your behavior.

Dr. Murdock also recommends a mental health evaluation if you need help managing underlying mental health disorders like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Schizophrenia
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

In addition to diagnosing mental health disorders, Dr. Murdock also provides holistic, integrative treatment plans to keep your condition well controlled. He focuses on relieving your symptoms, so you can enjoy a more stable, productive life.

What happens during a mental health consultation?

During your initial mental health consultation at JM Psychiatry Inc, Dr. Murdock spends quality time with you to learn more about your medical needs. He reviews your personal and family health histories and your symptoms to better understand your diagnosis.

You might also need blood work or another lab test to rule out physical health issues that can trigger mental symptoms.

To relieve symptoms of a mental health disorder and to enhance your quality of life, Dr. Murdock uses a combination of psychotherapy and medications. Therapy helps you identify negative thoughts and behavior patterns, unmanaged stress, and other factors that contribute to your mental health symptoms. He provides you with resources to support a healthy lifestyle and keep your symptoms under control.

You can meet with him in the office or through the online telemedicine platform for follow-up visits and medication management appointments.
