How To Get Yourself Help

1 in 5 adults live with mental illness in the United States. Less than half (NAMI) of these people seek help and end up in treatment, however. We know that sometimes things can get in the way of treatment. We, however, do not want there to be unnecessary barriers to treatment, such as a lack of access or stigma. These barriers keep hundreds of thousands of people away from treatment. If you need help, there are ways Villa Tranquil Recovery can help you. Read on below for more information.

First: Talk to a trustworthy person

Reaching out directly to a doctor may seem scary for many people. Instead of jumping straight into the deep end, start by talking to someone you trust. They don’t have to be a trained professional, just someone who can help you reach out for help. This step is more manageable than going directly to a professional for help. It’s still going to be hard, but it’ll be a bit easier to have someone by your side.

Second: Talk to a professional

Once you have spoken to someone you trust about the issues you’re having, try to then go to a professional for help. Research doctors in your area. This can be scary, but getting help is worth it. The professional may recommend you see someone for talk therapy. This is another step in the right direction. Trying out different therapists is much like trying on different pairs of shoes. The first one might not fit just right, and that’s okay. It may take a couple of different sizes or styles, but you’ll find the right one for you. You’ll find someone who you feel comfortable with and that you can trust.

Next: Build a support system

Having loving friends and family by your side is a vital part of the puzzle. This doesn’t have to be a bunch of people, just a few who really get it is all you need. If you are struggling, make sure you can call someone you trust. Let them in and let them help you. It’s okay to ask for help. 

Last: Seek further help if necessary
