Silver Hill Hospital Blog


Silver Hill began this blog to share our expertise and begin a dialogue with the public about mental illness. It is our hope that this will help to demystify and destigmatize a disease that has been shrouded in misperceptions, confusion and often incorrect information. We cover a range of topics, from suicide to addiction to gardening, and the importance of nutrition in caring for the brain. 

 

We hope you will submit questions and comments so we can further explain an illness that affects one in four Americans. If there are any other topics you would like covered, please send them along too.

 

We hope you will find this helpful, and look forward to hearing from you.

An Overview of Chronic Pain
An estimated 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain, which can last for years and may even last a lifetime, depending on the cause. People experience changes in their nervous system, which actually make them more sensitive to pain. Over time, they begin to lose hope of ever feeling well again and it evolves into Chronic Pain Syndrome, a condition that is comprised of physical, psychological and behavioral symptoms. Pain is no longer just pain; it’s suffering both physically and mentally.

Sending Your Child to College While in Recovery from an Eating Disorder
Most college students are excited to start a new year on campus with friends, while parents try not to shed tears as they watch their babies turn into adults before their eyes. Although college is portrayed in the movies as non-stop fun and excitement, that is not the case for everyone; especially for the 25% of U.S. college students who struggle with eating disorders.

Depression & Older Adults
If you are responsible for caring for an aging parent or older relative, you may grow accustomed to their occasional grumpiness or glass half-full attitude, but don’t be so quick to chalk it up to the typical aging process.
