Community Resources in Louisiana

You Matter

Being aware of our mental wellbeing is vital to our overall health. Our mental health dictates the way we interact with our family and friends at work and at school. It dictates our feelings, our thoughts, and our behaviors. It affects our day-to-day lives. When you’re struggling, it may seem impossible to find help, but there are many available resources in our community to help those who live with mental health problems. You just need to know where to look.

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. The following are some signs that it’s time to talk to a mental health professional:

  • Persistent feelings of unhappiness or hopelessness
  • Excessive anxiety that disrupts your activities
  • The inability to concentrate on daily tasks
  • Insomnia or fatigue
  • A change in appetite or significant, sudden weight gain or loss
  • Difficulty coping with a recent loss, like a death or the end of a relationship 
  • Feeling so overwhelmed by your current circumstances that you cannot focus on everyday activities
  • Thoughts of hurting yourself or others

The Time is Now

If you had a broken arm, you would not wait to get medical attention. Likewise, the best time to begin mental health services is when you first notice the problem.

Please contact us. We are  happy to answer your questions, discuss our services, or schedule an appointment to see a counselor.
