Being the Best You Possible
1 in 5 adults in the US experiences a mental health condition in a given year. That’s 46.6 million people per year. In addition, just over 4 million children are also treated for mental/behavioral health conditions. With that knowledge, we also are very aware that many go untreated because of the stigma associated with treating mental health conditions.
Whether it is an acute area of concern, such as grief, trauma, loss or sudden change, or a chronic issue such as depression, anxiety, or major mental health disorders, with treatment people can get the assistance needed to not only understand their condition, but also learn to manage it and live with it effectively.
If you or someone you know is dealing with an interruption or hindrance in their daily life due to mental health needs, we encourage you to reach out and get the help needed to treat these concerns. Just like with one’s physical health, treating the mind is necessary in being the best you possible.
