Heart and Soul

According to Thrive NYC, one in five New Yorkers experience a mental health disorder in a given year.

Compare that to the percentage of adults in this country with diagnosed heart disease, which, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is 11.7%,

You don’t have to be a math genius to figure out that that chances are that almost twice as many people in our community will suffer from mental health problems as will be faced with heart disease.

Whether you are seeking couples therapy in 10279, addiction counseling in CT, anger management therapy in NYC or depression treatment in NYC or CT, you are part of a large and growing number of people who are realizing that they don’t need to suffer in silence. For too long there has been a stigma attached to mental illness, but as more and more people seek treatment and experience welcome relief and healthy growth, I’m happy to say that stigma is fading away.

Depression is among the most common challenges to mental health – and among the most treatable. Many people have lived with depression, often characterized by feelings of sadness, uncertainty, anger or sorrow that you just can’t shake. Living with depression can be an isolating and frustrating experience. You may be experiencing feelings of pronounced lethargy, making routine tasks and activities you once enjoyed a challenge.
