Mental illness its Cost, employment discrimination and incarcerating kids in jail








The workplace can be a strong contributor to mental wellbeing, giving people the opportunity to feel productive and achieve their potential. Yet it can also be a stressful environment that contributes to the rise of mental health problems and illnesses such as depression and anxiety. With most adults spending more of their waking hours at work than anywhere else—and with many youth holding at least part-time jobs—addressing issues of mental health at work is vitally important for North Americans.
Teenagers are caught in a world where they are no longer children and not quite adults. They face daily challenges that include peer pressure, anxiety, low self-esteem, drugs and a variety of high risk behaviors. When a teenager begins engaging in self-destructive behavior, the whole family unit is affected, and slowly it becomes a family crisis.

Sessions are confidential and take place from the comfort of your own home. We are here to help you balance your life not complicate your schedule. Try us. We can help!
