Mental Health

Find Support At SunMed Skin & Medical

At SunMed Skin & Medical we believe mental health is just as important as physical health. It’s not something to be ashamed of, but rather an aspect of your overall well being that deserves care and attention. We offer a safe and supportive environment where you can address your mental health concerns, develop coping mechanisms and rediscover joy in your life.

Here at SunMed Skin & Medical, we believe in creating a safe and supportive environment where you can:

  • Openly discuss your mental health concerns: Whether you’re experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, or other mental health challenges, our team is here to listen without judgement. We understand that every person’s experience is unique, and we’ll work with you to identify the root cause of your concerns.
  • Develop healthy coping mechanisms: We’ll work together to develop coping mechanisms that empower you to manage stress, improve your mood, and build resilience. This may include techniques like mindfulness exercises, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), or relaxation techniques.

What are some common myths about mental health?

Unfortunately stigma still surrounds mental health. Some common myths include: 

  1. Myth: Mental health is a sign of weakness
  2. Myth: Mental health is rare
  3. Myth: Medication is the only effective treatment for mental illness 
  4. Myth: You can’t recover from mental illness

It’s important to remember that mental illness is a medical condition, just like any other and treatment can be highly effective.

Do I need medication for my mental health condition?

Medication can be a helpful tool for managing some mental health conditions, but it’s not always necessary. We will work with you to discuss all treatment options and will develop a plan that’s right for you. As part of SunMed’s service, we also work with mental health professionals. We can help refer you to the right mental health professional.

How do I know if I need to seek help for my mental health?

If you’re experiencing persistent changes in your mood, sleep or behaviour, or if you’re struggling to cope with daily life, it’s a good idea to talk to a mental health professional.
