Mind Matters: Mental Health Support at Hawthorn East Medical Clinic (HEMAC)

At HEMAC, our practitioners possess extensive experience in recognising the early signs and symptoms of mental illness, enabling us to provide timely and effective treatment interventions. We understand that early detection and intervention are crucial for improving outcomes and promoting mental well-being.

Mental illness can significantly impact individuals’ feelings, thoughts, behavior, and interactions with others. Our practitioners are trained to identify a wide range of mental health conditions, including depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, personality disorders, eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, as well as drug and alcohol addiction. By offering comprehensive assessments and personalised treatment plans, we strive to address the unique needs of each patient.

Treatment for mental illness may encompass various therapeutic approaches tailored to the individual’s specific condition and preferences. This can include counseling, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness practices, and the use of over-the-counter medications such as St. John’s Wort. Additionally, prescribed medications may be recommended to manage symptoms effectively.

Furthermore, our practitioners can facilitate referrals to mental health specialists, including psychologists and psychiatrists, for specialised care when needed. These professionals can provide in-depth assessments, psychotherapy, and medication management to support individuals in their recovery journey.

In some cases where intensive treatment is required, hospital admission may be necessary to ensure the safety and well-being of the individual. Our practitioners work closely with hospitals and mental health services to coordinate appropriate care and support for patients requiring hospitalisation.

At HEMAC, we are committed to providing comprehensive and compassionate care for individuals experiencing mental health challenges. By offering a range of treatment options and facilitating access to specialised services, we empower our patients to achieve better mental health outcomes and improve their overall quality of life.
