LET’S TALK MENTAL HEALTH
An active process to become more aware of how to make choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. Individuals are given access to a qualified professional to help address any problems or needs associated with their emotional health, wellbeing, relationships and productivity. This solution helps address and manage the high rate of mental illness currently recorded in our country. Wellness for adults in daily life not only means physical, but also social, spiritual, emotional and intellectual wellness as well. Stress results in depression, anxiety, relationship problems, thoughts of suicide, PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), and even PND (post-natal depression). So instead of struggling alone with these issues, talk to us.

This offers a direct line to talk about and deal with traumatic experiences that often involve a threat to life or safety. This includes any situation that leaves you feeling overwhelmed and isolated, which can result in trauma, even if it doesn’t involve physical harm. We provide an opportunity for individuals who have been exposed to any type of acute trauma to work with a therapist in order to manage and work through the trauma on a holistic and practical 4-step basis to get the survivor to return to their normal life as soon as possible. The prevalence of trauma and related psychological functioning in communities is very concerning. Professionals call this ‘traumatic stress symptomatology’, which means there is a very strong correlation between post-traumatic stress, depression and anxiety and somatic symptoms.
