May is Mental Health Month

May is recognized as national Mental Health Month and Tri-County Services is calling on the community to help the 1 in 4 American adults who live with a diagnosable, treatable mental health condition and understand how important mental health is to overall health.

Mental Health America has chosen this year’s theme as “Pathways to Wellness.” Tri-County Services supports this theme calling attention to strategies and approaches that help all Americans achieve wellness, good mental and overall health.

Wellness is more than an absence of disease. It involves complete general, mental and social well-being. And mental health is an essential component of overall health and well-being. The fact is our overall well-being is tied to the balance that exists between our emotional, physical, spiritual and mental health.

There are steps that maintain well-being and help everyone achieve wellness. These involve a balanced diet, regular exercise, enough sleep, a sense of self-worth, development of coping skills that promote resiliency, emotional awareness, and connections to family, friends and the community. These steps should be complemented by taking stock of one’s well-being through regular mental health checkups.

Just as we check our blood pressure and get cancer screenings, it’s a good idea to take periodic stock of our emotional well-being. One recent study said everyone should get their mental health checked as often as they get a physical, and many doctors routinely screen for mental health, which typically include a series of questions about lifestyle, eating and drinking habits and mental wellness. But a checkup doesn’t necessarily require a special trip to the doctor. There are also online screening tools you can use. While conditions like depression are common—roughly 1 in 4 Americans have a mental health condition—they are extremely treatable.

Tri-County Announces AMH Waiting List in Conroe and Cleveland

Effective May 1, 2018, Tri-County Behavioral Healthcare regrets to announce the need to put lower need adults on the mental health waiting list at the Conroe and Cleveland Clinics. Higher need persons and persons with certain types of insurance will still be able to access routine services.

The Center is currently at 115% of the State Contract Target for adults and the majority of adults seeking treatment have had no medical insurance.

The AMH waiting list policy will be reevaluated monthly and may change over time.

Please call 1-800-550-8408 if you have further questions about routine intake.
