Ask for Help
When we talk about mental health, we are referring to the ways in which our feelings, thoughts, and behaviors affect our day-to-day lives. Our mental health affects the way we interact with our family, friends, work, and school. We often recognize physical signs of illness; however, being aware of our mental wellbeing is just as important to our overall health.
What to Look For
Everyone has their ups and downs, but if you or a loved one is experiencing overwhelming feelings of distress that interrupt daily life, it may be time to ask for help. Some signs that it’s time to talk to a mental health professional can include:
The Right Time
If you had a broken arm, you would not wait to get medical attention. Likewise, the best time to begin counseling services is when you first notice the problem. A professional therapist can help you or your loved one find ways to identify the issue, cope with the situation, and alleviate the symptoms, allowing you to get on with leading a happier, more constructive life.
We Can Help You Today
If you need immediate assistance, The Village Life Center provides emergency services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please call our emergency hotline at (225) 385-3278.
