Behavioral Health

Your mental health is just as important as your physical well-being. It affects how you think, feel and act. Severe mental illness can have real physical symptoms and make daily life difficult.

Unfortunately, many things can make our mental health a struggle. Even people who have good emotional health can sometimes have problems. Mental illness sometimes has a physical cause that can be treated. Stress and problems with family, work or school can sometimes trigger mental illness too.

Know the signs

It’s important to know when to seek help from a physician or a counselor. Left untreated, mental illnesses can affect your thinking, mood, and activities.

If you think you or someone you love may be suffering, take a look at these warning signs on the American Psychiatric Association’s website. One or two symptoms may not mean that you have a mental illness, but it never hurts to ask.

If you are thinking about suicide or think that a loved one may be, seek help immediately. The local crisis hotline, provided by our local community partners at Foundation 2 is available to help 24/7. The Foundation 2 Crisis Hotline can be reached at 1-800-332-4224 or 319-362-2174.

Mental illness is not your fault

There are many causes from your genes, family history, and your life experiences, such as stress or a past of abuse. Biological factors can also be a cause.

Help is available

There is hope!  Be sure to tell your team at Eastern Iowa Health Center if you are struggling. We will work with you to find treatment that works.
