Mental health: am I crazy?

 

 

Looking for a psi professional is usually left as a last resort, a last resort, when we have reached our limit and we no longer hope that the situation has a solution. Why is that?

Perhaps one of the biggest myths that mental health professionals face today is the association of consulting or performing psychological counseling means madness, illness and or inadequacy.

Unfortunately, the people most affected by this prejudice are precisely those people who could benefit from psychological support, however, because they are functional and are able to “take it”, they do not allow themselves to reap the benefits of this self-care.

We do not want to suggest that everyone needs therapy, however, at some point in life, they may be able to benefit from a space for reflection and self-care.

If we do check-ups of our body, why not do our mind?
