Prioritizing Your Wellness: Where to Find Mental Health Support, Treatment and More

By WORLD CHANNEL

 
Mental health battles are not yours to fight alone.

1 in every 5 Americans copes with mental health on a daily basis. Only in recent years, most notably during the COVID-19 pandemic, has the conversation surrounding mental health become more normalized – struggling in secret is no longer the expectation. No matter what you may be diagnosed with, who you are, how you identify or what you believe in, there is a resource, practitioner or organization available to assist in working towards your mental wellness. Addressing your mental health options is the first step in caring for your mind.
