The Importance of Mental Well-Being
Mental health encompasses our emotional, psychological and social well-being. It impacts how we think, feel and behave in daily life. Our mental health also contributes to our decision making process, how we cope with stress and how we relate to others in our lives.
Mental well-being plays an important part in allowing you to adapt to changes in your life and cope with adversity and can promote productivity and effectiveness in activities like school, work and caregiving.

A specialist mental health clinician(s) will see you and take down your history and a list of presenting symptoms in an initial consultation. The aims of the appointment will be to clarify what your concerns are and to tell you more about the service, including the kind of problems we work with and the types of treatment offered and to develop a care plan with clear and achievable goals.Q: How long is the session?
Initial core assessment sessions are typically the longest and may last up to an hour. Other sessions are usually around 50 to 55 minutes long. However, some follow up appointments may be shorter, and some treatment review sessions may be longer. We will endeavor to let you know beforehand.
Clinicians also try their best to stick to appointment times, so we cannot guarantee how long a session may be if the young person arrives later than the allocated appointmentQ: Will my insurance cover this?
Insurance coverage depends on your insurance company, the level of coverage, and diagnosis of the person. You can use our insurance check tool to take a look at all the insurance companies that insure with us (https://www.medcare.ae/en/insurance-partners.html).
