Mental Illness

Why do I need couples therapy if my partner has a mental illness?

Although mental illnesses are very common, they don’t just affect the person diagnosed. People who have mental illnesses may go through a period of mood swings that may be difficult for their partner. By attending couple’s therapy together, you can obtain the skills and techniques needed to understand each other during frustrating times.

What are the most common types of mental illnesses?

The most common types of mental illnesses can include:

  • depression
  •  anxiety
  •  OCD 
  • Eating disorders. 
  • Schizophrenia 

Supporting your partner by reminding them how strong they are is one of the most helpful things you can do. Couple’s therapy can also teach you and your partner effective ways to communicate when you are feeling overly anxious or depressed. Expressing your feelings is an essential part of overcoming mental illness.
