Your mental health is as important to your overall well-being as your physical health. Mental health includes the ways you cope with struggles like stress, anxiety, guilt, sadness, and fear.
Your mental health affects your everyday behavior, your thoughts, and your emotions. When you’re struggling with your mental health, you see the negative effects at work, in relationships, and on your physical health.
Mental health may show up as anxiety or depression, or it simply may cause you daily distress that interferes with your happiness and quality of life.
Counseling can help you become more aware of your mental health. You learn how to react to stress or anxiety more positively, so you’re better able to interact with other people at work, your family, and in social situations.
Counseling can give you the coping strategies to avoid the physical repercussions of poor mental health, like high blood pressure or obesity. When stress or other mental health concerns go untreated, patients can end up with heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.
