Here’s how to seek help

  1. Start with self-care, like exercise or meditation.
  2. If self-care doesn’t work and you’re really struggling, talk to someone you trust. They might help you find professional help.
  3. There are different kinds of mental health treatments, like talking to a therapist or taking medications. Often, it’s a mix of both.
  4. Before you find a mental health pro, think about what you need, what’s available, and what you can pay for:

What kind of therapist you want, like their background or if they speak your language.

How you can get therapy, like in person or online.

What your insurance covers.

How much you can afford if you don’t have insurance.

When you’re ready to look for help, talk to people you know who might have suggestions. Your friends or family might know someone good. If not, you can reach out to your school or workplace. They might have counseling or can help you find a therapist.

If that doesn’t work, try reaching out to your state’s psychological association or local mental health center. You can also use online tools to find therapists. But remember, the most important thing is to feel comfortable and understood by your therapist. Don’t be afraid to try different ones until you find the right fit.

Cultural background is important too. It can be helpful to work with a therapist who understands your background, but make sure they don’t make assumptions about you based on it. You should feel comfortable talking about it with your therapist.

Sometimes, therapy isn’t enough, and you might need medication. If you have serious issues like severe anxiety or depression, medication can be a big help. You might need to see a psychiatrist, nurse practitioner, or physician’s assistant for this. They should explain why you need the medication, what it does, and any possible side effects.

Medication often goes with therapy, and your care team should check on you often to make sure it’s working right. They’ll adjust the dose if needed as your body gets used to it.

In the end, the goal is to find the right help to make you feel better. It might take some time and trying different things, but it’s worth it for your mental health.
