Did you know that a senior citizen mental, or behavioral, health has positive or negative effects on their physical health? Whether its pain issues, cardiovascular health or some other medical conditions, maintaining good behavioral health can significantly improve recovery time from illness and continued well-being. Specific mental health programs are designed for seniors; it's important to get the appropriate type of treatment for geriatric behavioral health.Sometimes a seniors behavioral health issues may be treated on an outpatient basis by doctors' orders and may base on group therapy. During group therapy, licensed health professionals lead the group by setting appropriate topics for group discussion and encourage members of the group to participate.Group interaction helps the senior to talk and socialize with other seniors who may have similar experiences. The senior may also receive individual, family or marital therapy if ordered by the doctor. If behavioral health needs cannot be met on an outpatient basis, more intensive services such as acute geriatric behavioral health treatment in a hospital are available. A senior may need this type of treatment due to thoughts of self-harm, not wanting to live, severe depression, anxiety, or medication management issues.How does someone go about requesting behavioral health care? The first step is a phone call to a geriatric behavioral health provider, and an assessment by a healthcare professional. Strict laws regarding rights to privacy protect all conversations and treatment, and confidentiality is protected by law. If you think that you or a loved one may benefit from these services, please call today.Ed.
