I was trying to think of a blog subject to write about this time for my blog. As I contemplated this, I noticed almost everyone in my Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Intensive Outpatient Group (IOP) was talking about their struggle to be perfect, or how they feel like failures if things are not exactly as they think they should be. I was hearing phrases like:

In my Previous article written in December of 2016, When To Be Concerned About College Related Stress,  I referenced research conducted by the National Alliance on Mental Illness regarding mental health on college campuses:

Mental Health Patients and the Emergency Room
It happens every day and all around the country. People suffering from various mental illnesses go to the ER for treatment and are either sent home after an evaluation or sent to inpatient care at a psychiatric hospital. In case you or a loved one ever find yourself in this position, here is what you can expect:

Happy Spring!
With the beginning of Spring, The Behavioral Wellness Group, LLC has some new and exciting things in bloom which will be announced soon. Stay tuned!

How many times a week do we have to reset our computer programs, update our various apps and log out and try again? Although this can cause stress and take some time we figure it is needed and we do it to keep things running in the correct manner. We need to take the time to reset ourselves as well. As a season change approaches, we are often hard on ourselves for not keeping New Year’s commitments or various other things we thought we would do for ourselves or our life. We often look at the things we have not done, kept up with or changed and become our own worst critics. We all are very negative to ourselves at times, when we may just need to refresh the page and be kind to ourselves.

At The Behavioral Wellness Group, we complete thorough initial assessments on new patients which ultimately result in recommendations for appropriate levels of care. This may mean outside referrals for Inpatient Hospitalization or Partial Hospitalization. BWG itself offers Intensive Outpatient Therapy, Medication Management and Outpatient Individual Therapy. Outpatient therapy at BWG may entail such things as support, unconditional positive regard, meaningful professional relationships and coping skills to deal with life.

As the holiday season is approaching many of us will find ourselves in overcrowded living and dining rooms with family and friends we see once a year. In such close proximity, people can bring up hot button issues like religion and politics which can cause discomfort over a holiday meal.
