Mental Health Q & A

What is mental health?

Your mental health encompasses more than just your emotional and psychological wellness, it also includes your physical and social well-being. 

It affects how you handle stress, make decisions, and interact with the world around you. Mental health issues can be caused by several factors, including genetics, environmental factors, and experiences. 

Mental health challenges also affect people of all ages, including children. Sometimes, it’s difficult to know when a child is struggling. They may not be able to express their concerns fully. 

Lukner Medical Clinic provides mental health support for children and adults, addressing their concerns with the utmost care, understanding, and compassion. While many mental health conditions have stigma surrounding them, but Dr. Lukner wants to help you get the care you need for your own personal wellness. 

When might I need mental health support?

There may be many reasons why you need mental health support, but some signs that you can benefit from professional counseling include: 

  • Behavior and mood changes
  • Difficulty focusing 
  • Appetite changes
  • Sleeping too much or too little
  • Withdrawal from friends and loved ones 
  • Loss of interest in activities
  • Trouble keeping up with daily responsibilities
  • Decline in self care and personal hygiene 

Lukner Medical Clinic offers counseling to help talk with you about your concerns, and can refer you to a psychiatrist for additional care. Dr. Lukner can help you find the appropriate care for:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety 
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) 
  • Chronic fatigue

If you’re struggling with a mental health issue, you might feel very alone. But know that your condition is treatable with proper care, even in the most severe cases. 

What happens during mental health counseling?
