What We Treat
Mental health is the foundation for emotions, thinking, communication, learning, resilience and self-esteem. Mental health is also key to relationships, personal and emotional well-being and contributing to community or society. Many people who have a mental health issues do not want to talk about it. Mental health issues are nothing to be ashamed of! Mental health issues are a a medical condition, just like heart disease or diabetes – and mental health conditions are treatable.

In most cases, symptoms can be managed with a combination of medications, talk therapy (psychotherapy) and life skills training.
