May is Mental Health Awareness Month, an excellent time to share that mental health wellness is critical to overall well-being.

Mental and behavioral health issues affect millions of people nationwide, and many people don’t realize the depth of support and services that are there for them. For instance, at Coordinated Behavioral Health Services (CBHS), we partner with healthcare providers throughout Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester Counties to connect Medicaid recipients to support. People can often receive services in their home or their community and in the way that feels right to them.

For example, peer counseling support allows individuals to connect with others who have shared the same experiences as they have. Working with a peer who has had similar challenges in their lives can be especially impactful and allow people to connect on a deep level. Other types of resources and counseling are available as well, such as family support, job training and employment assistance, among others.

Getting help does not have to be complicated and stressful, and working on your wellness goals can be something that you actually look forward to. Embracing healthier solutions and lasting recovery is possible, as well as empowering. Please reach out if you are unsure of your next step; we will either help you or connect you to the help you deserve.
