October is Mental Health Month here at Care Resource. Mental illnesses can affect persons of any age, race, religion or income. Mental illnesses are not the result of personal weakness, lack of character or poor upbringing. Mental illnesses are treatable. Most people diagnosed with a serious mental illness can experience relief from their symptoms by actively participating in an individual treatment plan.
This month is a time to look at and reflect upon your mental wellness. Wellness is, after all, the active process of becoming aware of and making choices towards a more successful existence. It generally includes the pursuit of health, defined as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease.
At Care Resource, our therapists are registered and licensed Clinical Social Workers, Mental Health Counselors and Marriage and Family Therapists. Our therapists all have master’s degrees and possess in-depth knowledge of the ways that chronic health conditions impact mental health and substance abuse.
