Hello … I from Situbondo need psychotherapy from a psychologist … because for many years I have experienced excessive anxiety, making sounds or movements repeatedly, schizophrenia
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Mental health, according to the definition of the World Health Organization (WHO), is a healthy state (well-being) in which an individual realizes the potential he has, can deal with stress / natural challenges in life, can work productively, and able to contribute to society. Meanwhile, the characteristics of mental health disorders include:
Clinically there are disorders of the mind, feelings, or behavior
Causing problems (distress), dysfunction (dysfunction), or disability for yourself and the environment
Do not rule out the possibility that your complaint (excessive anxiety, making sounds or repetitive movements) is a symptom of mental health disorders. However, the diagnosis of mental health disorders cannot be done without direct evaluation by a doctor. The diagnosis of a psychiatric problem can only be done on the basis of the results of a direct examination by a doctor or a specialist in psychiatry. The doctor needs to make a systematic history about the history of complaints and related biopsychosocial factors, then conduct a comprehensive physical examination, and supporting examinations according to the indications found. Doctors also need to ensure that complaints that occur are not caused by physical health problems or the effects of drug abuse or illicit substances. Through a series of evaluation processes, then the doctor can provide an objective assessment of the patient's health condition and provide the necessary treatment.
Unfortunately we cannot say whether you have schizophrenia or other mental health disorders because submitting complaints through an online platform alone cannot replace the series of evaluation processes that are needed. We recommend that you consult directly with your doctor or psychiatric specialist so that evaluation and treatment can be carried out appropriately. Self-diagnosis of symptoms experienced is not recommended for ordinary people because it is generally only based on searching for limited information on the internet and scientifically cannot be justified.
Your doctor can provide you with supportive counseling and psychotherapy to help you deal with (coping) and manage stress, identify symptoms, plan realistic therapeutic targets, and control yourself when symptoms appear. If there are indications, your doctor may give you medicines that can help you feel more comfortable and help deal with the disease. It is hoped that later you can be helped to be able to perform daily activities optimally.
As a suggestion, you are encouraged to talk about complaints that are felt to those closest to you who trust and believe you can support therapy. Support from the people closest will greatly support the success of handling health problems. You should also continue the activities that you enjoy doing so that you can channel your feelings through positive things
