Mental Health Resources
If you are suffering from depression and/or anxiety, I would highly encourage you to seek the help you need! It changed my life, and I know it can do the same for you. Even if you are on medication because therapy is its counterpart. You can always email me, I am here to listen. For professional help, here are some resources to get you where you need to be.
The first resource is to set up an appointment with your Primary Care Physician and discuss options for medications and have them direct you to therapy.
You can also call the number for behavioral services on the back of your insurance card.
If this isn’t an option for you, here are some more options:
There is a website called 7 Cups. 7 Cups of Tea is an on-demand emotional health and well-being service.
www.betterhelp.com This website is an online therapy service. They have some cheap plans and some aid with those plans, something to look into.
www.drugrehab.com this website helps, not only with addiction, but also with co-occurring disorders. “A person with a co-occurring disorder has been diagnosed with a substance abuse disorder and another mental health disorder. Co-occurring disorders, sometimes called dual disorders, are best treated through integrated treatment that addresses both issues at the same time”.
1-800-273-TALK (8255) This is the suicide hotline number. PLEASE call it if you ever get to that point.
Also, in regards to medications, Wal-mart and most pharmacies have a $4 medication plan that you can get on really easily, so you could get some medications through them.
If you know of anymore that I can add, please let me know. I’d love to make people aware of all their options.
And again, feel free to contact me anytime. firstname.lastname@example.org. I can lend a listening ear. I’ve been there!
