WHAT IS MENTAL HEALTH?
Mental health comprises the psychological and emotional factors that affect how we feel, think, and even act. The state of our mental health also has some control over the ways we handle stress, make choices, and get along with others. Having a healthy mind is essential for people at every stage of life, from the toddler years to old age. At Integrative Pain and Wellness Center, we understand how important it is to feel good inside and out. Dr. Matthew Barker and Dr. Melanie Gray have a great deal of respect for the millions of people who battle with their mental health daily, and we strive to do everything in our power to make you feel like you again. We take every possible factor into consideration to ensure that you receive the thorough, attentive care you need for your emotional, physical, and psychological wellness. Even if you've suffered from mental health issues for most of your life, we want you to know that there is hope.

WHAT CAN AFFECT A PERSON'S MENTAL HEALTH?
Dysfunction in any of the following areas may cause depression or anxiety in many patients:
- Hormonal imbalances
- Thyroid dysfunction
- Sleeping disorders
- Vitamin or nutritional deficiency
- Digestive health issues
All of the above problems can be diagnosed with lab testing or a sleep study, and there are treatment options available if abnormalities are found. Functional and integrative treatment are two areas of medicine that are currently growing in popularity. The goal for both of these specialties is to find the root cause of a patient's problem and to provide effective treatment while doing the least amount of harm.
HOW IS IT TREATED?
Before we address your mental health condition, we will first need to determine the cause of your concern. We may run some blood tests to assess your hormone levels and thyroid function so we can rule out possible causes or treat them effectively. If a sleep disorder is causing your depression or anxiety, we may remedy this with a customized oral appliance. Medication management is also available, as well as microcurrent neurofeedback and osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). Some of the mental health conditions we treat with these therapies at Integrative Pain and Wellness Center include:
