Signs of Mental Health Issues

If you’ve been experiencing any of these symptoms, it may indicate you’re struggling with your mental health, especially if you’ve had these issues in the past:

  • Feeling constantly stressed
  • Mood swings
  • Changes in sleep patterns, such as insomnia
  • Changes in weight or appetite
  • Withdrawing from social situations
  • Interpersonal/relationship conflict

In significant cases, you may also be having suicidal thoughts or substance use problems. It’s important to detect and intervene early when you notice these signs in yourself or someone you love so that the situation doesn’t get to a point where symptoms are worsening and more serious troubles may occur. Even if your mental health situation may be a long-term battle, Anuvia can provide counseling and coping strategies that prevent a continuous downturn.

Our Mental Health Services in Charlotte

Anuvia offers a host of mental health services that may be beneficial, depending on your situation. In particular, we offer:

  • Coping Skills Training
  • Individual Counseling/Therapy
  • Family Counseling
  • Medication Management
  • Psychosocial Rehabilitation: a program that helps individuals with serious and persistent mental illness develop the emotional, social, and intellectual skills they need to live, learn, and work in the community

You’ll meet with a professional, certified counselor to learn the coping skills you need to keep your mental health steady and your outlook positive. These mental health counseling programs and sessions are open for you to discuss your life and struggles, and you can trust Anuvia to match you with a therapist who will be able to assist. A psychiatrist may also be involved so that necessary medications can be prescribed to you. We also offer telehealth services for those who need a more flexible option for their treatment. Both mental health services and substance use aftercare can be conducted through telehealth if requested or needed.

An In-Depth Look at Specific Mental Health Issues


The primary symptom of depression is a pervasive feeling of sadness throughout your daily life. This feeling can lead to issues sleeping, eating, and motivating yourself to complete work or tasks. Treatment options for depression typically include therapy and medication. Anuvia can provide both of these treatments in-house, so you feel taken care of and can get on a steadier path forward.


Anxiety may sound like a familiar feeling for many, but anxiety is not the same thing as stress. Anxiety is a more severe, panicked feeling about everyday activities and difficulties. Physical symptoms may even manifest, such as sweating and a rapid heartbeat. Medication can help lessen anxiety for many people, but it’s also important to learn coping skills to help you get through the tasks that cause that feeling of dread and fear. Anuvia’s therapists are well-equipped to find the coping strategies that work best for you.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder can look different for different people depending on the type they have and the symptoms they deal with but is always characterized by vast mood swings from mania to depression. Medication is usually necessary to help balance these wide mood swings. Not only can Anuvia provide support to individuals with bipolar disorder, but it can also do the same for families of those with bipolar.

Substance Use

Substance use disorders are typically defined by a constant craving for alcohol or other substances to help one get through the day. Treatment for substance use disorders is often more involved, including steps like detox and outpatient treatment in addition to counseling and coping strategies. Substance use disorders often co-occur with mental health issues and require  a dual approach that addresses both issues. Anuvia provides each of these services and can provide substance use aftercare via telehealth. Our treatment plans are individualized to our patients and their needs.

Virtual Mental Services

Telehealth is an easy alternative to in-person talk therapy that allows you to receive online mental health treatment from the comfort of your own home. Whether you have a busy schedule, you’re not local to our treatment center, or there are other factors at play that dissuade you from coming in person, we understand. You can receive quality virtual mental health treatment and substance use aftercare through secure online meetings that can be scheduled by contacting us or by calling us at 704-376-7447.
