How therapy can benefit everyone
For a long time, mental health and therapy seemed to be taboo subjects. Something you really shouldn’t be talking about, and if you did, people can be judgmental or stigmatizing. However, over time, countless nonprofits and social justice groups have been advocating for the destigmatization of mental health struggles. Since the beginning of the pandemic, it seems that it is much easier to talk about mental health and that it is more “okay” to bring it up and ask for help. I guess we all start to realize that we’ve all been struggling in some way. And that’s okay.
Over the past year, I have introduced all kinds of coping techniques and strategies to manage stress and improve mental health. But I have always avoided anything related to therapy. So today, I am going to share some of the Benefits to seek mental health therapy.
Helps improve communication skills.
Helps you feel empowered
Learn to make healthier choices
Develop strategies to cope with distress
Improve relationships with others and with yourself.
There are many other benefits of therapy, but these are definitely the biggest benefits. In fact, I can talk to them since I have been going to therapy for years. For me, therapy is something that helps me get through some of the most difficult times in which I struggle with my mental health. It is also something that helps me stay euphoric when my sanity is in a very good position. Yes, you heard right. I keep going to therapy even when I’m not necessarily “struggling.” This is because it is still a place where I can learn about myself, learn to express emotions in a healthy way, and learn to communicate appropriately with others. I can also have the opportunity to resolve even the smallest internal conflicts and vent the frustrations of everyday life.
Therapy can be a powerful tool. And whatever your reason for going, you don’t need to justify it to anyone. For more information on how to go to therapy, contact PACS at (603) 862-2090.
