You Are Not Alone
Educate yourself on your mental health condition. Plenty of resources are available to give you a better idea of what you’re experiencing and to remind you that you are not alone. Research reputable sources online or check out library books to help you understand what you’re experiencing and how to manage it.
Most communities have resources, such as a community mental health center, that can help you decide if you should pursue additional mental health care. Your primary care doctor can also help you decide if you should seek therapeutic assistance.
Additionally, researching types of professional help can be beneficial. Mental health professionals, such as therapists or counselors, are trained to help individuals cope with mental health challenges and can provide personalized guidance tailored to your situation. You likely have friends who attend therapy and feel better; perhaps they have a personal recommendation to offer.
