What is mental health treatment?

Mental health disorders affect your mood, behavior, and emotional well-being. Treatment can vary depending on the type of mental health concern you have and its severity. As a compassionate health care provider, Dr. Favuzza works with you to create a mental health treatment plan that addresses your symptoms and helps you develop coping strategies.

Which disorders can mental health treatment address?

Dr. Favuzza is a strong advocate for mental health treatment. At Hometown Health Care of NEPA, she creates individualized treatment plans for mental health disorders, such as:

Mood disorders

Mood disorders affect your emotional state and behavior. You may experience intense emotional highs and lows that can interfere with your professional and personal life.


Anxiety causes persistent fear and dread that is disproportionate to the situation. While everybody has anxious feelings from time to time, those with the disorder experience excessive worry that can impact their day-to-day life.


Depression is a common mental health condition that causes feelings of sadness and hopelessness. You can also experience physical symptoms, like headaches and unexplained aches and pains.

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that makes concentration difficult. Some people with ADHD talk excessively and struggle to sit still, while others have a hard time paying attention to others. Understanding the type of ADHD you have helps Dr. Favuzza create the best treatment for your symptoms.

Dr. Favuzza performs a full mental health evaluation to diagnose and treat your specific mental health concern. At your assessment, she may ask questions about your medical history, lifestyle, stressors in your life, and any medications you’re currently taking.

What are the different types of mental health treatment?

  • Medication 
  • Psychotherapy (talk therapy)
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
