Psychiatrist, psychologist, therapist, prescription medication, counselor...oh my!


If you’re experiencing prolonged and/or debilitating mental health distress or battling with a mental illness, a professional might be able to help you navigate what you’re going through.


But how do you know if you actually need to seek professional help?


And with so many different types of professionals out there, how can you be sure you know who to talk to? Will that person (or medication) be the right fit for you?


Join the Stronger Together community this week to talk about seeking professional help. We’ll discuss determining whether you need help, how to identify which professional(s) to seek out, and how to navigate barriers like trust, cost, stigma and time.
