Get back to being you

Think of a dozen people you know. On average, at least two of them are living with a mental health condition, such as depression or anxiety.5 These conditions are not personal faults. They are treatable disorders that can affect how people think, feel and act. And they get worse if they're ignored. So click on one of the links below to:

Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety is a feeling of uneasiness or fear. Everyone feels anxiety sometimes. But in some people, anxiety becomes so powerful that it affects their relationships, work and home life.

In any given year, about 18 percent of U.S. adults will have an anxiety disorder. But less than half will get proper treatment.1

There are many types of anxiety disorders. Some of the more common ones are:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Social anxiety disorder

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common condition. It affects children and teenagers, and can continue into adulthood.

Children with ADHD have problems paying attention or concentrating. They can’t seem to follow directions and can get easily bored with tasks. The behaviors associated with ADHD can make it hard for children to function at school.

Autism spectrum disorder

Autism is one of a group of disorders that fall under the term “autism spectrum disorder.” Other autism spectrum disorders include Asperger’s syndrome, Rett syndrome and pervasive developmental disorder. Symptoms are related to social problems, communication problems or repetitive behaviors. The severity of the symptoms will be different in each person.

Current estimates are that 1 child in 68 has some type of autism spectrum disorder.* It can be diagnosed in children as young as 18 months. Boys are 4 times as likely as girls to receive a diagnosis.

Early intervention is important.

Depression

Depression can affect your thoughts, mood, health and behavior. It’s more than just “feeling sad.”

Depression is a treatable condition. Usually, a combination of therapy and medicine is effective. If not treated, however, depression can get worse.

Eating disorders

You’re more than what you weigh. But you might lose sight of this fact if you have an eating disorder. When an obsession with weight or food takes over, it can hurt your health and self-image and even be life threatening. It is important to get help for even a mild eating disorder.

Substance abuse

Many people think that substance abuse is a weakness. But when substances are controlling you,  it takes more than a strong will to stop. Substance abuse can occur with alcohol, prescription drugs or street drugs. Alcohol abuse is the most common type of substance abuse.

Support can help you develop strategies to:

  • Handle withdrawal, both physical and psychological
  • Deal with triggers
  • Manage everyday stress
  • Meet your responsibilities
