Mental Health and You

Mental Health and You

How many people do you know who are struggling with issues in life?  How many people do you know who are being treated for “mental health issues”?  Can you guess?  The answer may surprise you.

Often, we look at other people’s lives and imagine they must be happy.  They might have plenty of money, successful careers, and travel the world, but that doesn’t mean they are free from physical or psychological challenges.  Recently, Prince Harry, of the British royal family, revealed that after years of “not dealing” with the death of his mother, Princess Diana, he sought counseling services.  He stated in numerous articles that his life was in “chaos”.  His brother had been encouraging him to seek help for some time. He and other family members have recently formed charities designed to help awareness of mental health issues and treatments, specifically to destigmatize psychological problems.

I recently attended a lovely dinner at a close friends’ house.  She confided in me her son had started counseling after being encouraged by his parents to do so for many years.  He is happier than he has ever been, she reported.

What do these two people have in common?  Both suffered for years before taking their loved one’s advice and sought help.  Both spent years living miserably, but no more.  Treatment works! Despite this fact, people are often reluctant to acknowledge the need.


If you were running fever of 102 for several days, and still feeling ill, would you go to the doctor?  If your washing machine breaks, would you seek the help of a repair person to fix? So why not seek help in fixing your life?  Psychological problems, psychiatric disorder, mental illness, it doesn’t matter what you call it.  It is not a choice, nor a moral failure.  It occurs when the stress of life overwhelms an individual’s unique ability to cope.  For some people this could be the result of a tragic event.  For others, the stress of everyday life can overwhelm.  Sometimes talking to someone can help you put a different perspective on things.  This might be enough.  For others, however, there may be some chemical or brain change needed.

At Ketamine Wellness Centers, we provide both.  If you’re struggling with lifelong issues, or a recent overwhelming event, call us.  We offer both counseling and Ketamine infusion therapy to help you overcome whatever challenges life has thrown in your way.  Do you have a loved one who is suffering?  Call us for ideas on how to discuss this with your family and dear friends.   We can change lives, one person at a time.
