The cost of therapy can be expensive, even with health insurance coverage. Yet, mental health is the ultimate wealth.


Mental health includes your emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how you think, feel, and act. It also impacts how you manage stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices.


Mental Health Tip of the Day:


Consult your physician for personalized medical advice. Always seek the advice of a physician or other qualified healthcare provider with any questions regarding a medical condition. Never disregard or delay seeking professional medical advice or treatment because of something you have read on the internet.

Other mental health counseling and therapy options include asking a therapist if he or she offers a sliding scale. In addition, some pychologists and health professionals in training may also offer services within your budget.


Mental health is wealth.


Your mindset can impact your emotional, psychological, and social wellbeing. Having a positive mindset can affect how your think, feel, and act every day.

It was one of the best decisions of my life.
