Your mental health is just as important as your physical health but many of us put it on the back burner to focus on our families, our work responsibilities, and other parts of our lives. We forget that our mental health is what allows us to do well at work, be present with our families, and live a happy, healthy life.
The good news is that no matter what you’re struggling with, it’s not too late to find support. Mental health professionals can help you reduce stress in your life and find more happiness each and every day.
Finding convenient mental health care can be difficult –– the typical process for finding a counselor or therapist is often frustrating. At Thriveworks, we saw the need for a better way and our mission is to make it easier to access essential mental health care services.

Should I Start Seeing a Licensed Counselor or Therapist?
Mental health professionals specialize in techniques to help you work through and understand the challenges and mental health issues in your life. You’ll meet with a counselor to talk about your difficulties and any symptoms you’re experiencing.
One of the biggest misconceptions about mental health care is that it’s only for people with severe issues. Therapy is incredibly valuable for people going through major mental health challenges but it can also help people with mild symptoms. It can also help people who are facing relationship difficulties, family conflicts, or substance abuse issues.
Therapy can help in situations like these:
- Juan started a new job but he hasn’t been getting along with his boss. He’s never really experienced anxiety before but now he spends most nights worrying about what the next day will bring.
- Julia’s mother passed away a few weeks ago. She’s grieving and having trouble coping with the loss.
- Mark’s son started acting out at school. He’s a calm kid at home so Mark isn’t sure what’s going on.
Have you ever felt like Juan, Julia, or Mark? Working with a mental health provider could help you improve your mental health and get your life back on track. Our licensed therapists and counselors at Thriveworks Counseling in Indianapolis, IN (University Park) can create a judgment-free space for you to discuss your issues and forge a path forward.

What Is a Licensed Psychiatrist and What Do They Do?
Psychiatrists are medical doctors who specialize in treating and managing mental health conditions. They’re highly trained in understanding how a person’s physical health can impact their mental health and vice versa. For example, an overactive thyroid can sometimes cause symptoms of a mood disorder or anxiety disorder. Your psychiatrist can work with you to figure out what’s behind your condition and help you move forward.
Your psychiatrist has a medical degree, so they’re able to prescribe medication as part of their treatment plans. Medication isn’t beneficial for every client but it can help some people cope with the physical symptoms of a mental health issue or accommodate an underlying chemical imbalance.
