Much has changed about people’s understanding of mental health issues and disorders, and why shouldn’t it? Afflictions are far-ranging, with one in 10 adults nationwide suffering from depression every year, and a whole host of other conditions affecting the New Orleans community. From anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorders, to mental illness and addictions, the conditions and illnesses are complex and sometimes difficult to recognize. Fortunately, however, medicine and psychiatry have made remarkable advances in both understanding and treatment of mental health. With more accurate diagnoses and more complete understanding of the physiology behind the illnesses, psychiatrists are able to help more than ever, and New Orleans offers some great options for anyone in search of help.
