I can't believe it is October already – and the pressure is already on to complete our holiday shopping early! With all of the additional stresses of the world piled on top of our already hectic lives, it’s important to be mindful of not only our own mental health, but that of our loved ones near us as well. October is National Children’s Health month. Children and teens are especially vulnerable to the unique challenges that we are facing with COVID and isolation. Their mental health issues can often go invisible to most others, even to those closest to them. We have therapists at LPC who are accepting child and adolescent patients so reach out if you are concerned about your child or teen.

Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day 2021 is October 10th. Mental health plays a vital role in everyone’s life.

A healthy mental stage helps you to take advantage of your everyday ability to succeed. We all deserve a break and do not need to be so hard on ourselves every day. If you are struggling with your feelings and mental health please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here for you.
