Affordable Ways To Get Therapy
Just like it seems like health care should be available to everyone—no matter their financial status—doesn’t it seem like mental health care should be accessible by the masses, too? It’s something you may not have thought much about, until you needed it. Many individuals have this frustrating, funny and ironic situation: they slowly come to terms with the fact that they could use a little help in the mental health department, and they finally put their pride aside enough to seek out help only to find out they cannot afford it. Talk about a kick to that pride they were just trying to ignore. Taking care of your mental wellbeing is just as important as taking care of your physical body. In fact, some would say taking care of your mental health is an important part of taking care of your physical body since things like eating disorders and high blood pressure can stem from mental conditions. If you feel like you need someone to talk to but can’t pay for a private clinic, here are affordable ways to get therapy.
Reach out to your religious leader
Almost every religious center—regardless of your faith—offers free counseling. Considering that places like churches and synagogues are, in the big picture, places where groups of people seek counseling on life, it is a part of the rabbi/priest/pastor’s job to offer private counseling to members of the center.
