Behavioral and Mental Health

Image of a sign for coping steps: help, support, advice, guidance
At some time in our lives, each of us may feel overwhelmed and may need help dealing with our problems. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (2019), more than 46 million U.S. adults  ages 18 and older deal with any mental illness (AMI).  Sometimes we may need help dealing with feelings and problems that seem beyond our control — problems with a marriage or relationship, a family situation or dealing with losing a job, the death of a loved one, depression, stress, burnout or substance abuse. Those losses and stresses of daily living can at times be significantly debilitating. During times of disaster, during this current outbreak of Coronavirus Disease or other illness, feelings of stress and anxiety may become exaggerated and burdensome. Help is available. Below are some of the resources available to help navigate you through difficult times. Stay postive, in control and healthy.
