    Comprehensive Mental Health Services and Recovery

    At Real Psychiatric Services, we understand that each individual’s path to mental health is unique. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of outpatient mental health services tailored to meet your specific needs:

    Individual and group therapy sessions: Our licensed therapists use evidence-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help you develop coping strategies and improve your mental health.

    Medication management: Our psychiatric nurse practitioners work closely with you to find the right medication regimen, monitoring your progress and adjusting as needed to minimize side effects and maximize benefits.

    PTSD and trauma therapy: Our specialized trauma-informed care helps survivors process their experiences and develop resilience.

    Depression and anxiety treatment: We provide targeted interventions to help you manage mood disorders and reclaim your life.


    Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health issue that affects individuals who have experienced or witnessed traumatic events, such as abuse, natural disasters or combat situations. Symptoms can persist for extended periods and impact daily life, with women being more likely to be diagnosed than men. Seeking help from healthcare providers is essential for managing PTSD symptoms through treatments like psychotherapy and medication.

    PTSD occurs in people who have experienced or witnessed traumatic events, leading to long-lasting distressing thoughts and feelings related to the event.

    Symptoms include flashbacks, avoidance, difficulty concentrating, and sleep problems which can interfere with a person’s ability to function in daily life.

    Women are more likely to develop PTSD than men due to various factors such as increased likelihood of experiencing certain types of trauma and biological differences in response to stress.

    Treatment options include psychotherapy, medication, and support from loved ones, all of which can help individuals overcome their symptoms and improve overall well-being.

    Stress is a common experience that can impact both mental and physical health. Real Psychiatric Services in Columbus, Ohio provides comprehensive support for those dealing with stress-related issues. It’s crucial to seek help when necessary to manage stress effectively.

    Symptoms of stress include headaches, sleep disturbances, fatigue, and irritability.

    Common causes of stress are work pressure, family conflicts, financial concerns, and major life changes.

    Stress affects women’s health by exacerbating pre-existing conditions and impacting reproductive health.

     Unmanaged stress can weaken the immune system & increase risks of cardiovascular disease.

    BiPolar Disorder

    Bipolar disorder, or manic depression, is a chronic mental health condition causing extreme mood swings with episodes of mania and depression. This article highlights the symptoms, causes, and treatments for bipolar disorder.

    Types of Bipolar Disorder: The three main types are Bipolar I (at least one manic episode), Bipolar II (one hypomanic and one depressive episode), and Cyclothymic Disorder (milder form with persistent hypomanic and depressive symptoms).

     Symptoms and Causes: Symptoms include manic (increased energy, elevated mood) and depressive (sadness, hopelessness) phases. The cause is unknown but involves genetic, environmental, and neurological factors. Family history increases risk, as do certain life events or stressors.

    Diagnosis and Treatment: A mental health professional evaluates a person’s mood symptoms and history to diagnose bipolar disorder. Treatment typically combines medication (mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, antidepressants) with talk therapy to manage symptoms effectively.

    Living with Bipolar Disorder: Early intervention is crucial for managing bipolar disorder. Real Psychiatric Services in Columbus, Ohio offers personalized care including medication management and psychotherapy to help patients lead healthier lives.
