Mental Health Care

Everyone reacts to stress and traumatic experiences differently. While some have reactions that can be seen as normal responses to life events, others may experience signs or symptoms of more serious conditions. It is important to seek help if you're concerned that you or a loved one may be experiencing mental illness. Mental health is an important part of overall health and well-being, yet mental illness affects millions of people worldwide.
Mental health disorders include:
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Seasonal Affective Disorder
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Or other mental health illnesses.
