We are Here To Help

Many people are reluctant to use mental health services because of the “stigma” of having an “emotional” problem. Society has a tendency to view mental health issues differently from medical ones. When someone breaks a leg, has chest pains, or needs to get a prescription, they’ll see a doctor. However, when they experience depression, excessive fears, or a problem with alcohol, they may be embarrassed to seek help. Many people view these conditions as weaknesses” they should handle themselves.

Unfortunately, this view prevents them from getting professional assistance that may alleviate their problems.
