In today’s world, doctors are focused on the overall health of a patient including their physical, emotional, and mental health. We believe that when a patient’s mental health is suffering, their quality of life suffers. Discover three reasons why you should see a Mercer Medicine mental health counselor:
A Mental Health Counselor is Trained to Help You
Your counselor has had extensive training and education to know exactly how to help you overcome your challenges. Every person is different which means that every person needs a unique solution! Your mental health counselor can ask questions and offer solutions that you may not have thought of yourself.
A Mental Health Counselor is an Objective 3rd Party
Have you ever opened up to a family member or friend just to feel awkward around them a few days later because of what they know? That’s a normal feeling, and that’s why it’s important to talk to an objective third party about your concerns, thoughts, and feelings. Your mental health counselor is someone with whom you can be open and honest, without feeling judged or awkward.
A Mental Health Counselor Prioritizes Your Mental Health
Simply put, your mental health is important and should be prioritized. How your brain works, what you think about, and your focus throughout the day overflows into other areas of your health. Have you ever been so worried about something that you feel sick to your stomach? This is because your thoughts and focus can affect your physical and emotional health! A mental health counselor will discuss strategies to implement a healthy mental state and how to make productive choices.
