Myths Around Therapy & Mental Health Services

TAKE CONTROL OVER
Your Life & Mental Health With Therapy
Therapy is for everyone no matter their walk of life, income level, or reputation. You don't have to have the "best of the best" doctors to achieve mental peace, however, you must be willing to do the work to achieve mental stability.
In full transparency, it's best to have a few preventative therapy sessions so when you feel symptoms of depression or anxiety, you have a provider that you trust to work through your anxiety, depression, or overall mental illnesses with.
Medication isn't always the answer, however, some mental illnesses are easier to manage than others with medicine. Be open with your provider on your thoughts or fears around medication for any diagnosed or undiagnosed mental disorders.
