Happy Holidays From Counseling Space

Happy Holidays From Counseling Space

As we near the close of the year, it is a great time to access the previous year and look ahead to the next. For Counseling Space it has been a year of progress and growth. We have been working diligently to make online counseling an option for some of our clients, discussed the stigma of seeking
mental health in a nationally syndicated article, and expanded our clinical staff with the hiring of our newest therapist. All of these successes and a little research is leading us into a year that we hope will be one that allows us to further serve our clients.

Pride And Mental Health, Don't Let The Stigma Kill You

In similar fashion stigmas about mental health have kept many African Americans from seeking the help that they need, often with deadly results as mental illness is viewed as a “white problem.” It is the downside of a legacy that has made us so self-reliant that the notion of needing medical treatment is a sign of weakness. Especially for an ailment that isn’t physical. For women of color, these views of strength and frailty are compounded by their womanhood.
