Are you looking for help? Feeling overwhelmed? Unable to fall asleep? Can’t turn your mind off? Having mood swings or anxious thoughts? In a ‘dark place’ and unable to pull yourself out? Unable to focus?
Have you been been diagnosed with OCD, Depression, Bipolar, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, PTSD, ADHD… or JUST WONDERING if you might be struggling with a medical or psychological issue?
Sometimes it is difficult to find the RIGHT KIND of help:
You might have called your mother to vent some of your emotions only to be told “it will all be okay.”
You might have confided in a friend, who, despite their steadfast commitment and dedication to journeying with you, has been unable to to fully comprehend the nature of your struggle (or your child’s struggle).
You might have sought counsel from a pastor or pastoral staff and subsequently found comfort and strength in your relationship with Christ, but continued to battle with impact of mental illness on your (or your child’s) daily life.
Perhaps you visited your primary care doctor and attempted to tell him/her your story, but were suprised when the doctor, working under the high pressures of Managed-Care, rushed out of the room in 10 minutes after writing you (or your child) a prescription for an antidepressant and Xanax.
Perhaps you searched the internet and found a random therapist, whose credentials and areas of specialization you have little understanding of, and took a long-shot by booking an appointment – only to find out that the therapist was a bit odd and lacked the specialized training necessary to treat the condition with which you (or your child) are struggling – assuming the therapist had the courage to tell you they lacked such training.
