How Do I Know If I Should Try Therapy?

Making the decision to attend sessions with a therapist can seem daunting. Many people believe that they can handle their own difficult emotions, and don’t want to look for help. This way of thinking can lead to embarrassment and avoiding taking the positive steps needed to make your life better.

  1. Feelings of being overwhelmed – Sometimes there are just too many things going on at once… you feel like you need space to breath, but just don’t know how…
  2. Feeling tired – Feeling tired all the time is a sign that your body is struggling, oftentimes due to emotional stress and mental strain. 
  3. Feelings of apathy – Maybe you no longer enjoy doing the things you used to love to do. Even if you want to go back to enjoying certain activities, you just may not want to do anything at all…
  4. Feelings of social withdrawal – While it’s normal for people to want to spend time alone, we are by nature social creatures. Spending too much time away from others can lead to feelings of sadness and depression.
  5. Feelings of hopelessness – When you begin thinking that you have no future, it can lead to other negative thoughts which make it even harder to function in your daily life.

If any of this feels familiar to you, imagine how much better life will be once you allow someone to help – WE CAN!

How COVID-19 Impacts Our Beneficiaries

In times like these it’s easy to get caught up in the sensationalized day-by-day news cycle. 

We should all take a moment to remember one important fact: things will improve the world will go on.

We will bounce back from COVID-19 and its impact on our lives, and when we do we will all be stronger than we were before.  

Healing Arts has not forgotten our mission that we promised to fulfill – to eliminate the stigma attached to receiving mental health services, specifically among culturally marginalized communities. To promote growth and development of children, families, adults and the community by way of leadership, psycho-education and evidenced based therapies. We hope you haven’t forgotten why you chose to stand by us in the first place. 

We can each do our part as individuals to keep our community healthy. As we practice social distancing and do our part to stop the spread of this virus, we hope you’ll also remember how our children and their families need you. 

Your donation will be a tremendous help in keeping our mission alive. We won’t stop working towards building strong children and strong families.

But to do that we need your help. Please forward this email as you see fit to friends who support our mission.  
On behalf of the families we serve, thank you!
