A World-wide Mental Health Care Crisis
A sharp increase in mental health issues has been reported all around the world. One study followed over 1,700 participants in 190 Chinese cities during the height of the pandemic from late January to late February.
Twenty percent of survey respondents in Spain met the criteria for having a mental health disorder. Almost 20 percent were depressed, 25 percent were anxious and 16 percent had PTSD. In Slovenia, half of the survey participants reported high levels of stress.CALL NOW
Can Stress Cause Mental Health Problems?
Chronically high-stress levels can cause schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety disorders, and depression. Stress can disrupt restorative sleep. Poor sleep reduces your ability to cope with stress.
Stress affects your body as well as your mind. If the stress continues or becomes chronic, you might develop conditions such as these over time:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Abnormal heart rhythms
- Menstrual issues
Mental Health Programs in New Jersey
At Renewed Light, we offer Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP) and Outpatient Treatment Programs (OP) in a private, confidential, and protective setting. Our IOP provides structured support for individuals who require ongoing assistance but do not need inpatient care, while our OP offers short-term interventions to address specific challenges. We understand the unique needs of our clients and are committed to providing comprehensive mental health care tailored to your individual journey.
Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOP)
Our Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP) offers structured support for individuals requiring ongoing assistance, without the intensity of inpatient care. Our tailored treatment plans prioritize essential therapeutic elements to meet your specific needs.
What Sets Our IOP Apart:
Diverse Therapies: Our comprehensive therapy options encompass individual, group, and couples therapy, complemented by a range of evidence-based approaches that nurture the mind, body, and spirit. These include practices like yoga, mindfulness training, art therapy, and grief counseling.
Peer Insights: In our group therapy sessions, you’ll gain valuable insights from individuals who share similar experiences. Beyond fostering accountability, these support groups offer guidance on managing specific challenges.
Trauma-Informed Care: Our program is rooted in trauma-informed care, providing a safe space to address past experiences that may have exacerbated your mental health concerns. Trauma therapy allows you to heal and gain a deeper understanding of your present self.
Physical and Mental Health: IOP is an excellent choice if your mental health symptoms jeopardize your physical well-being. It also serves as a transitional program for those moving from residential treatment to everyday life. Here, you can gradually adapt to a healthier life while continuing to receive vital support from our expert team.
Outpatient Treatment Programs (OP)
Our Outpatient Treatment Programs (OP) offer short-term interventions to help individuals cope with challenging life events that have the potential to resolve within a few weeks or months.
Key Features of OP:
Weekly Sessions: OP typically involves a few sessions of counseling or education per week. It’s an excellent option if you’ve completed a more intensive program like IOP and still require support. It’s also suitable if you prefer weekly therapy sessions for maintaining psychological balance.
Customized Counseling: Our therapists work closely with you to address specific concerns and goals, offering tailored support during short-term counseling.
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT): While CBT is not a standalone program, it plays an integral role in our therapy approach. CBT is a highly structured form of therapy that challenges self-defeating thoughts, emotions, and behaviors.
In addition to CBT, we also incorporate Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) into our treatment model. DBT is a specialized form of therapy that focuses on enhancing emotional regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance. Together, these evidence-based therapies empower our clients with effective tools to navigate their mental health journey and build resilience.
Medication Management: We provide Medication Management, which is distinct from Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT). Our focus is on psychotropic medications to support your mental health.

What Are Co-occurring Disorders?
Someone with a severe personality disorder might meet the criteria for four, five, or even more disorders. A co-occurring disorder is any previously diagnosed disorder. If a new disorder is identified, a preexisting disorder is called a co-occurring disorder.
New disorders can appear spontaneously, in response to stress or gradually over time for no apparent reason.
In January of 2019, scientists at the University in Denmark analyzed the records of nearly six million Danes. They found that individuals with one mental health disorder were more likely to develop one or more additional disorders.
For example, you might be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder at age 33. However, you’ve also had PTSD for the last 10 years, and you acquired a binge eating disorder in adolescence.
Scientists don’t yet understand the dynamics of co-occurring disorders. We do know that each disorder must be treated independently as well as in connection with any other disorders.CALL NOW
Can Mental Health Disorders be Cured?
Mental health disorders cannot be cured. Nevertheless, they can usually be managed with therapy, self-care, and medication.
Many disorders are triggered by stress. Skyrocketing stress levels caused by the pandemic have taken a severe toll on everyone’s mental health whether you have a disorder or not. These days, everyone needs a therapist.
If exceptionally high-stress levels continue, individuals without ongoing support may be unable to function as parents, partners, or on the job. Some will lose the ability to complete the tasks of daily living.
