Mental health is important to one’s well-being and needs to be acknowledged and properly managed. While the best course of action for mental health illnesses is to seek professional help from doctors and other mental health professionals, we can help alleviate some pain by talking about some of the challenges you are facing. Children and youth are developing depression, anxiety, ADHD as well as a myriad of other disorders at younger ages and can be unsure about what they are feeling before or during a diagnosis. Talking about your issues can decrease the impact you feel and talking about suicide and suicidal thoughts can help reduce the chances of suicidal actions.
Substance abuse can affect anybody. It is the use of licit or illicit substances outside of what is recommended by health professionals. It can include taking alcohol, illegal drugs, or even over-the-counter or prescription medication to the point where the substance is negatively affecting one’s everyday life or quality of life. We can help you talk about how substances are affecting your life and support you in working towards positive action and change.
