Supporting Mental Health at Home, Work, and in the Community

While May is National Mental Health Awareness month, at The Women’s Center, our focus is on mental health and well-being every day of the year. Taking care of ourselves and our loved ones includes recognizing the signs of mental health challenges, as one in five people will be affected by mental illness in their lifetime. Many individuals will encounter difficulties in the normal course of life that affect well-being, including stress, grief, and prolonged periods of sadness. The Women’s Center is a community resource for anyone wanting to better understand these challenges and speak with a professional on how to manage and work through mental health concerns.

Individual and Family Counseling 
With more than 60 professionally trained therapists on staff, The Women’s Center meets the diverse psychological needs of women, men, families, teens, and children by offering numerous services and specialties. In a safe, supportive environment, clients learn to understand emotions, develop confidence, and regain control of their lives. The Women’s Center takes many insurance plans, and for those without insurance, our sliding fee scale ensures that no one is turned away due to an inability to pay. 

Support and Therapy Groups 
In addition to meeting one-on-one with a therapist, we also offer several support and therapy groups. Support groups provide individuals a setting in which they can share life experiences with others dealing with similar challenges. Therapy groups offered at different times during the year may deal with a number of topics, including anxiety and depression, surviving emotional abuse, anger management, and grief. 

Mental Health in the Workplace
Mental health challenges not only impact the family unit but impact the workplace as well. The varied demands of work and personal life can be factors of an increasingly stress-filled life that can lead toward anxiety and other health-related issues. 

To address this need, the Center offers our Healthy Minds/ Healthy Workplace Program to: 
• Better understand how mental health factors show up in all domains 
• Recognize mental health signs that may need attention 
• Change the language and stigma often associated with mental health 
• Learn about resources and practices that can improve mental well-being.
