Advancements in Mental Health Treatment: Understanding the Importance of Seeking Help

Psychiatric conditions, on the whole, are not fixable.
One in four Americans is affected by mental health issues each year, with many struggling with severe and life-threatening conditions. On a recent episode of One Hour at a Time, host Mary Woods spoke with Dr. Richard Duvall about the advancements in mental health treatment and the importance of seeking help. Dr.
Duvall, a practicing psychiatrist and head of the Leadership in Medicine program at the College of Medicine at Texas A&M Health Science Center, discussed the history of mental health treatment and the role of primary care physicians in providing care for those with mental health disorders. He emphasized that while psychiatric conditions are not fixable, effective treatments are available, and it's crucial to find the right healthcare provider to oversee treatment. Additionally, Dr.
Duvall stressed the need for advocacy in mental health care, as many insurance companies do not cover psychiatric conditions, making it difficult for patients to receive necessary treatment. This episode of One Hour at a Time provides valuable insight into the current state of mental health treatment and the importance of seeking help for those who need it most.
