bonmente is focused exclusively on mental health, meaning our providers are specialized in providing evidence-based treatments for all types and presentations of psychiatric conditions.
Anxiety disorders, characterized by excessive fear or worry, are the most common mental illness, affecting more than 40 million adults and 4 million children in the United States. Anxiety, however, is one of the most highly treatable mental illness.
Affecting more than 260 million people worldwide, depression is the leading cause of disability on the planet. Depression symptoms vary from sadness and irritability to suicidality and rage. Treatment is available and remission is possible.
Sleep disorders, such as insomnia, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, and narcolepsy, impact physical health and can lead to mood disturbances. In some cases, sleep disorders can trigger depression and anxiety or lead to substance abuse.
An estimated one in seven women experiences peripartum depression, which poses a risk to both the mother’s and the baby's health and quality of life. Unlike "baby blues" that last a couple of weeks, permpartum depression can last months and lead to other mental health problems.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) causes above-normal levels of hyperactive and impulsive behaviors. People with ADHD may also have trouble focusing their attention on a single task or sitting still for long periods of time. An estimated 3 million people in the U.S. are affected by ADHD.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can result from experiencing or witnessing a traumatic event such as a natural disaster, a serious accident, a terrorist act, war/combat, rape or other violent personal assault. An estimated one in 11 people will be diagnosed PTSD in their lifetime, with women twice as likely as men to have PTSD.
Schizophrenia is a chronic brain disorder that affects how a person thinks, feels, and behaves. Although there is no cure for schizophrenia, medications can reduce symptoms and therapy can help enhance function, reduce stress, and improve social skills.
Bipolar disorder, categorized as bipolar I, bipolar II or cyclothymic disorder, is characterized by extreme mood swings ranging from manic highs, sometimes with psychosis, to intense depression. More than three million Americans live with bipolar disorder. Treatment is individualized based on the patient, but typically includes a combination of medications and psychotherapy.
Personality disorders involve a way of thinking, feeling and behaving that deviates from the expectations of the culture, causing distress and creating problems with functioning. Psychotherapy is central to treatment of personality disorders.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder in which recurring, unwanted thoughts, ideas or sensations are "managed" with repetitive actions. The repetitive behaviors, known as compulsions, can significantly interfere with a person’s daily activities and strain social relationships.
Gender dysphoria is a sense of discomfort or distress occurring in individuals whose gender identity is different from their assigned sex or physical characteristics. This dissatisfaction may trigger anxiety or depression and can have a negative impact on daily life and function.
Anyone can be affected, despite their level of success or their place on the food chain. In fact, there is a good chance you know someone who is struggling with it since nearly
20% of American adults face some form of mental illness
in their lifetime.
So why aren’t we talking about it?
