Emotional Struggles: Getting the Help You Need

woman looking out on lakeAt some point in their life, most people have struggled to handle emotional issues. Sometimes this struggle is temporary, but often the suffering remains. This can be the case when battling a chronic health condition.

If you feel that you are having difficulty handling your emotions or the situations in your life – regardless of their cause – consider taking steps to get help. A great first step is to discuss this honestly with your primary care physician. Depression screening is actually a component of your annual wellness visit.

Henry Ford Health System also has an award-winning program that has helped thousands of patients recover from or manage depression and other mental health issues. To learn more about this program, please call (800) 422-1183 or visit our behavioral health page.
