May is designated as National Mental Health Month. This year's theme is "Before Stage Four," in an effort to promote awareness of mental illness, symptoms of problems, how we can all help prevent larger mental health issues, as well as how we can treat our mental health as seriously as we treat our physical health. Follow our blog, TFI Talks, to learn more about how to live healthier lives and build strong family bonds, different types of therapy and how mental and physical health are related. #B4Stage4.
Everyone feels anxiety, fear or sadness at one time or another. These are natural responses that help us cope with danger, threats and loss. However, when these symptoms are persistent or have an adverse effect on daily living, they may represent a more serious condition, such as an anxiety disorder or depression.
The Family Institute offers a selection of therapy, support and psychoeducational groups on an array of topics, from children’s social skills and anxiety to mindful couples and men’s issues. Therapy groups are great for a number of reasons, including addressing a specific difficulty, learning a new skill or simple to seek support from others who share a common experience.
