You don’t have to handle life on your own. Difficult life experiences, trauma, grief and loss, accidents, abuse, chemical imbalances or harmful environments can create mental conditions that left unaddressed create larger issues. There’s no shame in not being “strong enough,” and it can be dangerous to “power through” and not treat mental health risks. Avera is here to support your mental health.
