Taking Care of Your Mental Health in the Face of Uncertainty

Stress can be a normal reaction, but sometimes it can also take a toll on our mental health. We don’t always know it’s happening. You might feel more on edge than usual, angry, helpless or sad. You might notice that you are more frustrated with others or want to completely avoid any reminders of what is happening. For those of us who already struggle with our mental wellness, we might feel more depressed or less motivated to carry out our daily activities.
 
It’s important to note that we are not helpless in light of current news events. We can always choose our response.

We are in this together, and help is always available. If you’re feeling alone and struggling, you can also reach out to The Crisis Text Line by texting TALK to 741741 or National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK.

We believe that successful experiences in leadership begin with a relationship based on trust and confidentiality. Our leaders aim to integrate treatment approaches, with specific techniques and interventions, tailored to the needs of each employee, as they explore their mental health concerns and navigate through life’s demands.

Medication Management

We believe that social, emotional and behavioral disorders are frequently the result of an imbalance in brain chemistry. Our clinicians complete psychiatric evaluations to determine the most effective medication regimen for each individual; employing empirically
based treatment models, including
Genesight Testing. Once a medication treatment plan is established, follow-up visits are spent discussing whether therapeutic levels are reached.
