A young father has a blossoming, lucrative career, a beautiful home, a loving wife, and healthy children. From the outside, his life is complete. What more could he want? This young father’s life is not what it appears. He has secretly struggled with anxiety since a child. He is an African-American who was adopted into a Caucasian family. As a child, he would look for his biological father in the face of every black man he met, all while hiding this desire from his adopted father. This man’s anxiety remained hidden until he had a public panic attack—his feelings could not be hidden any longer. This young father, of course, is Randall from the hit This Is Us. The show had developed a large and loyal fan base, in large part because it does not shy away from reality. The storyline portrays the ups and downs of mental illness. It highlights the shame many people struggling with mental illness feel. It illustrates the isolation and secrecy they may feel. It also spotlights the love, joy, and beauty of life—goodness that mental illness cannot steal. While relational challenges and mental illness may be a given in life, so is help.
“I know how important good mental health care can be because
I personally benefited from it.”
Mental health care can bring untold benefits to an individual’s life. Tipper Gore stands with many others who have experienced the improvement mental health care brought to their lives. The stigma that once surrounded mental health is fading, and many people are receiving the care they need. Whether the trouble is emotional, relational, or psychological, people have options and help is available. Many people have learned how to live life from their own values and toward their own goals.
The staff at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Newark gets that life is full of highs and lows. Our therapists, counselors, and life coaches have ridden life’s rollercoaster with many clients, and seen firsthand how prioritizing mental health can improve an individual’s overall well-being.
Connect with a Counselor or Therapist
The basis of individualized care is trust. The success of the client-therapist relationship is contingent upon trust being established. Trust allows clients to be honest about what is happening in their lives. Trust allows clients to step back from the chaos of life and feel safe. Trust allows clients to feel, think, and evaluate. Trust allows clients to step back into daily life with renewed perspective and with a game plan.
Skilled mental health professionals not only provide a safe space for clients, but they often help them avoid common pitfalls on the road toward recovery. For example, many people become stuck in blame and finding vault as they heal. When people are honest about their experiences, especially difficult ones, it is easy and natural to blame and find fault. Initially, blame allows people to feel powerful; however, it focuses people’s attention upon other people instead of their own healing. This often distracts people from what they can do for themselves for their own healing and growth. Skilled therapists, counselors, and life coaches can help their clients bypass this and other roadblocks.
Therapy is not an easy button or a silver bullet. Change often takes hard work and means sacrifice. However, people who have made adjustments to improve their mental health will almost always say that they are so glad they did so. The short-term sacrifice almost always leads to long-term gain.
Here are just a handful of the many challenges that the therapists and counselors at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Newark have empowered their clients to overcome…
