Personal Statement
Many people don’t know where to turn when they are feeling extremely stressed, overwhelmed, or mentally exhausted. Trust me when I say you can turn to your medical providers. They are a concerned not only for your physical health but also your mental health. They might not know what to say once they see tears, but they do know to grab someone from the Behavioral Health department. Let us be that shoulder you can cry on or just someone you can open to and release those internal feelings/emotions that you have bottled up over the years. We aren’t here to pass any judgment; we just want to work with you to help you develop the skills you need to handle those difficult times.
