Mental Health

Depression, anxiety, fear, loneliness. These are feelings we may experience at one time or another. However, when these feelings linger and become overwhelming or too challenging to handle, it is likely time to consider professional help.

Mental illness affects millions of Americans. Nearly one in five Americans ages 18 and older experience some form of mental illness which can also include a substance use disorder. At TASC, our counselors specialize in treating the following mental disorders:

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental disorder. 6 years old is typically the earliest age of first onset for those who have lifetime anxiety.1

Depressive disorders are the second most common type of mental disorder.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a brain disorder. Behaviors include inattention, and/or hyperactivity and impulsivity.

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a disorder that develops in some people who have experienced or been exposed to a traumatic or life-altering event.

Every individual is unique. Mental health disorder symptoms vary, can occur once, reoccur, and co-occur with other disorders including substance use. This is why it is so important to consult with a professional if symptoms are interfering with your physical and emotional well-being. Our services include:

  • A comprehensive biopsychosocial assessment to understand your unique needs
  • A personalized treatment plan including coping skills
  • Counseling services for the individual and family
  • Psychiatric evaluations and medication monitoring at our main Phoenix office

    • The mental health assessment is a one-on-one interview with an individual to address their mental health needs. The following is reviewed: current stressors/issues that are causing distress, medical history, previous treatment for mental health, and social support. Additional services may be recommended if substance use is a factor.

    • Individual counseling is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained clinician to learn the skills to manage feelings, thoughts and behaviors.
