Why Is It Important to Pursue Treatment for Undiagnosed Psychiatric Conditions?

Undiagnosed psychiatric conditions can have significant negative impacts on an individual’s life in various ways. 
Here are some common ways in which undiagnosed psychiatric conditions can affect individuals:

Emotional and Mental Well-Being

Undiagnosed psychiatric conditions can cause emotional distress, persistent negative emotions, and a sense of unease or dissatisfaction with life. Symptoms such as anxiety, depression, mood swings, or irrational fears can significantly impact one’s overall well-being.
If these remain untreated, they may even lead to co-occurring disorders as well. It’s imperative to seek help and support if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms.

Impaired Functioning

Psychiatric conditions can interfere with an individual’s ability to function effectively in daily life. They may experience difficulties in maintaining relationships, performing well at work or school, managing daily tasks, or engaging in leisure activities.
Undiagnosed conditions can lead to decreased productivity, impaired concentration, memory problems, and decreased motivation.

Physical Health

Some psychiatric conditions can have physical manifestations and impact an individual’s physical health. For example, chronic stress and anxiety can lead to physical symptoms such as headaches, gastrointestinal issues, muscle tension, and sleep disturbances.
Additionally, individuals may engage in unhealthy coping mechanisms like substance misuse or self-harm, further compromising their physical health.

Social Isolation and Relationship Difficulties

Undiagnosed psychiatric conditions may also lead to social isolation and difficulties in forming and maintaining relationships. Individuals may struggle with interpersonal skills, have trouble understanding social cues, or experience mood swings that can strain relationships.
The stigma surrounding mental health can also contribute to social withdrawal or avoidance of social situations.

Reduced Quality of Life

Unaddressed psychiatric conditions can significantly reduce an individual’s overall quality of life. They may experience a persistent sense of dissatisfaction, a lack of fulfillment, and struggle to find enjoyment in activities they once enjoyed.
The condition may overshadow their daily experiences, leading to a diminished sense of purpose and engagement in life.

Increased Risk of Self-Harm and Suicide

Certain psychiatric conditions, such as major depression, bipolar disorder, or severe anxiety, can increase the risk of self-harm or suicide if left undiagnosed and untreated.
These conditions can lead to overwhelming feelings of hopelessness, despair, and a distorted perception of reality, making it crucial to identify and address them promptly.

Treatment Can Help You or Your Loved One Regain Wellness and Autonomy

It is important to note that timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment can help individuals manage and alleviate the negative impacts of psychiatric conditions, improving their overall well-being and quality of life.

Undiagnosed Psychiatric Conditions We Can Help Treat

An undiagnosed psychiatric condition can affect almost all areas of your life. At J. Flowers Health Institute, we believe that your mental health is as important as your physical well-being. There is often a correlation between the two, meaning holistic care is necessary.
Anyone with an undiagnosed psychiatric condition may also be at risk for physical, social, emotional, and financial side effects. It’s a primary reason we offer treatment options that comprehensively support all facets of your health. 

How Getting Care Can Help You Heal

The longer your condition goes undiagnosed, the more repercussions you may face. That’s why it’s important to get care and assessment as early as possible to ensure that you can start getting help and treatment.
J. Flowers Health Institute can help diagnose and evaluate your symptoms. Some of the mental health conditions we commonly treat at our all-inclusive offices will be detailed in the sections below.

Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety is a mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is a feeling of unease or worry ranging from mild to severe and can impact a person’s quality of life, relationships, and work productivity.

Anxiety symptoms can vary, but some common signs include overly worrying, being restless, having a lack of concentration, and sleep disturbances. Anxiety can be caused by genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors.
Anxiety can also be caused by stressful life events such as work-related stress, financial problems, or relationship issues.

Anxiety Disorders Too Often Go Undiagnosed

Anxiety disorders too often remain undiagnosed, misdiagnosed, or inappropriately treated. When someone doesn’t receive a proper diagnosis, they’re unable to receive the care they need. According to one study, less than one in five patients with an anxiety disorder receive appropriate medication.1
Over 40 million adults are dealing with an anxiety disorder. Children and teens account for another 7%. Unfortunately, only 43.2% of individuals seek treatment for an anxiety disorder.2
We strive to change these statistics at the J. Flowers Health Institute. Our goal is to help improve the mental health of adults and children.

Treatment After Anxiety Disorder Diagnosis

Once a diagnosis is made, there are various treatment opportunities. Our J. Flowers Health Institute team can help with:

  • Medications: Antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications can help alleviate anxiety symptoms by balancing chemicals in the brain. 
  • Therapy and counseling: Psychotherapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, can help individuals learn ways to cope, challenge negative thought patterns, and improve self-esteem.
  • Lifestyle changes: Lifestyle changes can also be beneficial in managing anxiety. Regular exercise, healthy eating, and getting enough sleep can help reduce stress and improve overall health. Relaxation techniques like deep breathing and yoga can also help alleviate anxiety symptoms.

Generalized Mental Health Disorders

A generalized mental health disorder can affect anyone, and we are here to assist. Our healthcare facility presents a relaxing environment where patients and their loved ones can relax throughout the diagnostic and treatment process.
Since generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is not the result of a medical condition, not all healthcare facilities are equipped to deal with this type of mental health struggle.

A Closer Look at Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Safe and Supportive Treatment

It’s not uncommon for symptoms of GAD to last for up to 24 weeks or longer. It’s why we are pleased to provide bespoke services to our clients. Our bespoke services include providing a safe and comfortable place for our clients to relax and determine their next step of treatment.
Whether our clients decide to remain at home or enjoy our comfortable settings, we provide exceptional care that includes testing for pre-conditioning factors, brain chemistry, and other environmental factors.

Treating Substance-Induced Anxiety Disorders

Using specific prescribed medications or illicit substances can cause symptoms of anxiety. In some cases, the condition also occurs due to withdrawal from those substances.
A few of the common psychoactive substances that may cause the condition include:
  • Caffeine
  • Alcohol
  • Cannabis
  • Inhalants
  • Cocaine
  • Phencyclidine
  • Amphetamine
We treat substance-induced anxiety disorders with compassion and care. Along with using a variety of traditional and holistic treatments, we also offer extended stays to our clients who require more time to learn how to deal with their anxiety disorder.
An extended stay can also be part of a client’s detox program, where withdrawal symptoms are handled with care and respect.


In the United States, it is estimated that two-thirds of all cases of depression go undiagnosed.3 Globally, it is estimated that an average of 5% of individuals struggle with some sort of depression.4 With the severe overarching impacts of depression, this highlights the importance of psychiatric diagnosis and care.

What is Depression?

Depression is a mood disorder that can cause feelings of hopelessness, despair, and loss of interest in activities that were once enjoyed.
Depression can impact a person’s quality of life, relationships, and work productivity. It is essential to understand the symptoms of depression, seek help, and get proper treatment.5

Identifying the Symptoms of Depression

The symptoms of depression can vary from person to person, but some common signs include:
  • Feeling unhappy or empty
  • Loss of interest in activities
  • Increase or decrease in weight or appetite
  • Difficulty sleeping or oversleeping
  • Feeling tired or lacking energy
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
  • Feelings of worthlessness, guilt, or hopelessness
  • Thoughts of self-harm or suicide

A Closer Look at Clinical Depression

Risk Factors for Depression

Depression can be caused by a combination of genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors.
Depression can also be caused by stressful life events such as the loss of a loved one, divorce, financial problems, or chronic illness. Women are twice as likely as men to experience depression, and the risk increases with age.6
We take these risk factors into account when performing diagnostic evaluations and curating custom treatment plans.

Treatment After Receiving a Diagnosis for Depression

Treatment for depression can include medication, psychotherapy, or a combination of both. Antidepressant medication can help alleviate symptoms of depression by balancing chemicals in the brain. 
Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy, can help individuals learn skills to cope, change negative thought patterns, and improve relationships. Lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, healthy eating, and getting enough sleep can also be beneficial in managing depression.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder frequently goes undiagnosed or is misdiagnosed altogether. Up to 40% of individuals with bipolar disorder are estimated to receive a misdiagnosis for their condition.7

What is Bipolar Disorder?

Bipolar disorder is a mental health condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is a mood disorder that can cause extreme shifts in a person’s mood, energy, and activity levels. Bipolar disorder is characterized by episodes of mania and depression, which can last for days, weeks, or even months.8

Symptoms of Bipolar Disorder

Symptoms of bipolar disorder can vary from person to person, but some common signs include:
  • Mood swings
  • Elevated or irritable mood
  • Racing thoughts
  • Decreased need for sleep
  • Impulsivity
  • Reckless behavior
  • Feelings of hopelessness or worthlessness
These symptoms can significantly impact a person’s daily life, relationships, and work productivity. It is believed to be caused by a combination of genetic, biological, and environmental factors.

Treatment After Receiving a Bipolar Disorder Diagnosis

After receiving a proper diagnosis, bipolar disorder can be treated with psychotherapy or medication, or a combination of both. Family therapy can also be beneficial in understanding and managing the impact of bipolar disorder on family members.
Lifestyle changes can also be helpful in managing symptoms of bipolar disorder. Regular exercise, healthy eating, and getting enough sleep can help reduce stress and improve overall health. Avoiding alcohol and drugs and maintaining a regular schedule can also help stabilize mood.

Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is a disorder that affects both children and adults. It is characterized by hyperactivity and impulsiveness that can significantly impair daily functioning and quality of life.

What is ADHD?

Causes of ADHD

The causes of ADHD are not entirely understood, but research suggests that genetics, brain structure and function, and environmental factors may all play a role.
Studies have shown that there may be differences in brain structure and activity in individuals with ADHD compared to those without the disorder.9

Treatment After Receiving an ADHD Diagnosis

After an ADHD diagnosis, treatment typically involves a combination of medication and psychotherapy. Behavioral therapy can also help set goals and reinforce positive behaviors.10
While ADHD can be a challenging disorder to manage, it is treatable, and individuals with ADHD can lead successful and fulfilling lives. At  J. Flowers Health Institute, we are experienced in diagnosing individuals with ADHD and providing them with the support needed for symptom management and sustainable wellness.

Our Comprehensive Diagnostic Evaluations Process

Diagnosing your psychiatric condition will typically begin with a physical examination.
The examination aims to check and confirm if the signs of anxiety connect to an underlying medical condition or medication.
If your mental health condition is due to a medical condition, the doctor may order a urine test and other tests to ascertain the illness. Other necessary steps for proper diagnosis include asking detailed questions about medical history and using questionnaires.
To avoid a potential misdiagnosis, we follow the standards set by the DSM-5.

Medication Management

Medications are often prescribed by our healthcare staff to reduce and manage symptoms. The medications we often recommend will depend on the condition, but may include antidepressants, buspirone, and benzodiazepines.

Therapy and Counseling

We believe that treating the mind and body produces the best results for our patients. It’s why our dedicated medical team often recommends clients participate in psychotherapy.
This typically involves cognitive-behavioral therapy to teach individuals how to manage their worries and return to daily activities to improve their overall well-being.

Healthy Practices

We also emphasize social support and the development of healthy coping mechanisms. Some coping strategies that facilitate treatment include increasing physical activity, eating a proper diet, and getting enough sleep.
Talking to a loved one or joining a support group also proves efficient in helping with anxiety symptoms.
