Happy life begins with mental health
The main reason why many Chinese do not seek psychological counselling is the lack of understanding of this aspect or their shame regarding their own psychological barriers.
Long-term psychological distress can easily effect daily life functions, interpersonal relationships and multiple physical health problems.
Timely seeking of mental health services can alleviate or even eliminate the negative effects and unnecessary pain.

When should I seek professional treatment?
Most encounters in life will cause mood swings but not necessarily mental illnesses. When we continue to feel sadness and anxiety, or greatly affect our lives, this is an emotional mental disorder, we must first seek help from professionals. A mental illness or a physical illness is a malfunction of the human machine. The machine should be regularly maintained so that no major accidents occur. Psychology is also a glimpse. It is necessary to carry out active health care before it may be ill.
How can a clinical psychiatrist help me feel better?
Psychotherapy is a treatment based on psychological theory.
Clinical psychologists have the expertise to understand factors such as family history, biology, culture, personal and life history that interact with psychological problems. The goal of treatment involves helping the client change his or her views on things.
Feelings and emotional reactions, improving individual adaptability and eliminating psychological distress and gradually helping patients change their thoughts and emotions is the outcome of clinical psychology.
