Most people would agree with the importance of preserving our physical health. When we get a bad rash or a suspicious mole, we see a dermatologist. When we have high blood pressure or high cholesterol, we may consult with a cardiologist. But when we feel like something is “off” with our mental health, we aren’t always quick to schedule an appointment with a mental health professional.
There are many reasons for this. Some people feel like they should be able to handle their struggles on their own. Others feel too ashamed to admit they have a problem in the first place. Some know it’s important but never make the time to actually prioritize their mental health and see a specialist.
But mental health conditions like depression and anxiety are unlikely to just go away on their own. Without professional support, mental illnesses may worsen over time, causing uncomfortable symptoms and unnecessary suffering.
This can happen to anyone, no matter their background, age, or level of success. Take actor Michael B. Jordan, co-star of the Marvel Studios smash hit Black Panther, for example. He has opened up publicly about his need for counseling for his internal struggles, especially after portraying the villainous Erik Killmonger in the 2018 blockbuster hit. Jordan has expressed gratitude for having the opportunity to unpack his emotions and work through his issues with a trained professional.
Jordan isn’t the only celebrity struggling with his mental health, and he is one of the millions of Americans who seek out counseling every single year. It’s important to remember that whatever you’re feeling, you don’t have to go through it alone. Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Solana Beach is ready to help.
