The presence of a mental health condition has the potential to cause a great deal of distress in a person’s life, regardless of how young or old that individual may be. Especially when a mental illness includes behavioral disturbances as a symptom, the effect on an individual’s functioning can be significant. With an awareness of how such disturbances can impede a person from living a life that is desired, Harbor Oaks Hospital has created a variety of programming options that aim to treat any existing mental health concerns and the problematic behaviors that occur as a result.
Children, adolescents, adults, and older adults are known to struggle with behavioral concerns when mental illness is a factor in their lives. For young people, academic performance could be compromised and result in failure and they could have a great deal of difficulty forming healthy relationships with peers. Additionally, there is a high likelihood that these youth will experience disciplinary action at school or with the legal system if problematic behaviors are allowed to remain without proper intervention.
Adults are similarly effected when acting out or when impulsive behaviors occur regularly in their lives. It could prove difficult for men and women to acquire and maintain employment if poor impulse control and decision-making occurs due to the presence of a mental health disorder that elicits destructive behaviors. Furthermore, adults with these types of disturbances may even begin to engage in criminal activity if treatment is not sought and implemented. By seeking and receiving treatment as soon as problematic behaviors become apparent, people, young and old, can be recipients of the care needed to manage behavior and urges to act out.
