How Mental Health Impacts Us

Mental health impacts how you think, feel and act. It determines how you relate to others, make choices and handle stress, according to the Cơ quan Quản lý Dịch vụ Sức khỏe Tâm thần và Lạm dụng Chất gây nghiện (SAMHSA).

It's just as important as your physical health. Trầm cảm can even increase the risks of some physical health concerns.

If you're struggling, ask for help. It's a sign of strength. We're here when you need us most.

How to find a mental health provider

Finding a mental health provider can take time. On What's the 211? podcast and the Minorities and Mental Health Series on 92Q, we've talked with behavioral health specialists about the wait times and difficulty finding someone you trust, especially for the Black community.

It may take a few providers before you find the right fit. But don't delay treatment. Start the conversation with an available therapist as soon as possible.

  • When finding a therapist that's right for you, ask about:
  • types of therapy they offer
  • treatment options
  • payment methods

You want a therapist you can have an honest and open conversation with. It may take a few tries before you find the one you connect with and trust. If your first choice isn't available, start the conversation with a therapist who has openings. It's a starting point. Mental health help is a process.

Therapy can help you feel validated and put words to what you're feeling.

Set mental health goals that work for you, and don't let excuses get in the way of getting help. Remember, it is ok not to be ok.

If you can't get in with a therapist, you can schedule time with 211 Kiểm tra sức khỏe, You'll talk with a trained mental health professional who can help support you each week.

Behavioral health help is available. You can also search our resource database, and filter options based on what you need.
