Making Mental Health Care a Priority.

Let’s have a reality check.  If you have a comfortable sum of wealth you can afford better health care.  Perhaps you have enjoyed the finer things in life for years.  You bought a bigger home than you really needed.  Your car is a luxury model.  You took some vacations.  Why…because you can, that’s why!  Enjoying the good life also means staying grounded.

So many people in this country live with physical and emotional trauma and do nothing about it.  Many times the reason is they simply cannot afford good mental health care.  If you have feelings of desperation and do nothing about it then it is on you because you CAN afford it and you may need it.  This is not the time to just “buck up”.  Seek the counseling that you deserve from a professional.
