Mental Health Symptoms

While most people recognize a depressed or anxious mood, many people are affected by less well-known mental health symptoms. These include irritability, fatigue, avoidance of triggers, and substance use. If you or a loved one are experiencing these mental health symptoms or others, here are some steps you can consider:

  1. Talk with your current health provider. This might be your primary care provider, your optometrist, or your chiropractor! These medical providers are familiar with mental health and counselors in the Roanoke Valley and New River Valley areas. They can help you connect with the right mental health provider to meet your needs.
  2. Check out Psychology Today to find out more about the mental health providers listed in your area. Psychology Today allows you to search by location, and provider type, while also letting you filter out characteristics about your provider such as insurances accepted, demographic information, and experience.
  3. Consider telehealth for your mental health needs. More mental health providers than ever are now offering mental health services online. From the comfort of your own home, you can work with a counselor through a computer screen or your mobile device.
