Mental Health Support

Your mental health is a vital part of your overall well-being. It affects how you feel, think, reason and remember.

At Mercy, we take a sensitive, compassionate and caring approach to mental health. We provide a full range of mental health services for you and your loved ones.

Defining mental health issues

Conditions that can affect your mental health include anxiety, depression, schizophrenia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In most cases, these disorders are caused by genetics, brain chemistry and environmental factors. But sometimes they can be triggered by a life-changing event, tragedy or trauma.

In any case, mental health issues are medical problems like any other, with no need for blame or shame. If your symptoms cause stress and prevent you from leading a normal, happy life, it's time to ask for help.

Symptoms may include:

  • Feeling depressed
  • Excessive worry & fear
  • Extreme feelings of guilt
  • Withdrawal from family & friends
  • Extreme mood changes
  • Chronic tiredness, low energy or problems sleeping
  • Detachment from reality (delusions), paranoia or hallucinations
  • Inability to cope with day-to-day life
  • Trouble relating to people and situations
  • Confused thinking or reduced ability to concentrate
  • Alcohol or drug abuse
  • Extreme changes in eating habits
  • Sex drive changes
  • Excessive anger, hostility or violence
  • Suicidal thinking

Mental health issues can also appear as physical symptoms, such as stomach pain, pelvic pain, back aches, headaches, and unexplained aches and pains.

No concern is too small

When it comes to your mental health, taking action is key. If you or a loved one are experiencing any mental health issues, Mercy can help.

Support and treatment for mental health issues

Our psychologists, psychiatrists and social workers provide the care you need to regain your life.

  • First, we will evaluate your symptoms to determine the underlying cause.
