Conditions treated

Individuals living with neurological conditions such as stroke, epilepsy, brain and spinal cord injury, multiple sclerosis, dementia and Parkinson's disease can experience a wide variety of mental health symptoms that can interfere with their quality of life - and which can benefit from psychiatric, behavioral or pharmacological intervention. These include:

  • Depression
  • Anger management difficulties
  • Anxiety/panic disorder
  • Impulse-control issues
  • Self-esteem issues as a result of their condition
  • Learning problems
  • Social difficulties including withdrawal and isolation
  • Cognitive and memory deficits
  • Aggressive behavior and agitation
  • Sleep disorders
  • Delusions and hallucinations

Equally important, spouses, children and other family members of patients with neurological conditions can suffer from "caregiver burnout" and experience symptoms such as depression, sleep disturbances and anxiety. Resources such as outpatient counseling and psychosocial support groups also are available through MMC to help address these issues.
