Important Terms about Mental Health Centers

Mental health centers provide a wide range of services to persons suffering from psychological disorders. These clinics typically have facilities to treat everything from serious mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia, to marital discord. If you are seeking out information on psychiatric treatments available at clinics in your community, you may encounter some terms with which you may not be familiar, so below we'll define some of them.

  • Inpatient - A person who stays continuously at a hospital or clinic for an indefinite period of time. Conversely, an outpatient is someone who visits a medical center only long enough to receive treatment, then is allowed to return to the community.
  • Psychiatrist - A doctor who specializes in the treatment of mental disorders. Unlike psychologists and other kinds of mental health workers, psychiatrists are legally authorized to prescribe medications to treat their patients.
  • Substance abuse - The habitual use of legal or illegal drugs in a manner that causes disruption to one's personal or professional life. Many mental health clinics offer aid to persons suffering from drug addiction.
  • Eating disorder - The umbrella term for a variety of abnormal eating patterns. The most common eating disorders are anorexia, the dangerous practice of severely restricting one's food intake, and bulimia, a type of compulsive behavior where sufferers routinely eat massive quantities of food and subsequently attempt to lose weight through hazardous methods. A less common eating disorder is pica, the compulsion to ingest non-edible materials.
  • Depression - A mental illness marked by persistently low mood and loss of interest in normally pleasurable activities. Severe depression lasting at least two weeks can meet the criteria for a major depressive episode.
  • Emergency detention - Committing an unwilling person to a facility if they are in imminent danger of harming themselves or others. Also called involuntary commitment.
