Psychology Cares Clinical Services

Adults Clinical Services (18-65 Years)

Clinical care for adults at Psychology Cares is informed by established evidence-based practices and also by the development of our own innovative theories and treatment models by our Centre for Research and Clinical Innovation [CRCI].  Using these theories and models, we regularly assess, formulate, and successfully treat some of the most complex psychological and neuropsychological disorders as well as comorbid physical health conditions in adults. Our specialist adult clinical services also promote optimisation through improving self-esteem, self-regulation, performance and functioning, and by enhancing resilience throughout the course of adult life.

The World Health Organisation reports that one in eight adults experience a diagnosable mental health condition during the course of their life [The World Health Organisation, 2022]. However, in practice, the reality of these statistics is likely to be much higher given that we all encounter challenges at different stages during the course of our adult lives. In the UK alone, over 70% of adults report that they feel overwhelmed by stress and are unable to cope [Mental Health Foundation, 2018]. Our specialist clinical services will provide you with the ability to cope better with distress, stress and a full range of mental health difficulties, not only helping you to recover but also to positively adapt and grow from your circumstances.

Navigating the Maze: Understanding & Addressing Adult Mental Health Challenges

In the intricate landscape of mental health, the journey through adulthood is characterised by a labyrinth of challenges and uncertainties where navigating the path to mental wellness can feel daunting. At Psychology Cares, our Centre for Research and Clinical Innovation (CRCI) and LifeLab (LiL), with specialist and dedicated clinical research, continue to contribute to the development and improvement of adult wellbeing during the course of their lives.

Many adult mental health disorders such as mood, anxiety, personality and behavioural or functional disorders often find their routes in adolescence. During one’s developmental journey, the complex interaction of genetic, developmental, social, and environmental factors can shape the trajectory of mental health outcomes, with varying degrees of impact.

Adult mental health disorders contribute significantly to the number of years lived with disability, impairing educational attainment, straining familial relationships and reducing work productivity. The burden of these disorders is not limited to the affected individuals but also communities and societies, highlighting the urgent need for effective interventions and support systems.

Addressing mental health disorders requires a multifaceted approach that encompasses both community-based interventions and specialised healthcare platforms. Community initiatives aimed at raising awareness, reducing stigma, and promoting mental health literacy play a crucial role in early intervention and prevention efforts. Additionally, access to mental health services, including therapy and counselling, is essential for individuals grappling with these challenges.

The journey through adult mental health is littered with obstacles but it is not without hope. Through a comprehensive understanding of the underlying factors of mental health and implementation of targeted interventions with effective support systems, we can navigate the complexities of these challenges more effectively.
