Mental Health Resources
Pretty much everyone knows the benefits from therapy. But not everyone has the time or money to be able to get one-on-one help. With today’s technology, there are so many other resources that could help you. And if you are in therapy, some of these resources can complement the help you’re already getting.
Open path is a website where you can get online therapy from $30-$50 a session with a licensed therapist. This is a great resource if you don’t have health insurance.
National Alliance on Mental Health (NAMI)- provides education and support to increase awareness and understanding of mental health.
There are many apps you can download. I wrote a blog post on some of my favorite mental health apps. I would suggest typing the mood you’re in in the app store search and download a few to find a few of your own favorites.
