Did you know that in Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth counties, we now have more people to help with mental health?
That’s right, Pillar Health and Kenosha Community Health Center (KCHC) have added more experts to provide therapy to our team. These experts, called behavioral health service providers, are here to help with things like feeling really sad or worried. They know a lot about how to help both kids and adults feel better.
It’s important to know that a lot of people sometimes struggle with their mental health and therapy can help. In fact, in 2020, nearly 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. had a hard time with this. In Wisconsin, where we live, it’s the same. But it’s been hard for people to find the help they need. And it’s not just adults; kids and teenagers can have these feelings too. More and more young people are feeling anxious, very sad or thinking about very sad things.
That’s why at Pillar Health and Kenosha Community Health Center we are doing our best to help. We offer something called Psychiatry, which is when doctors check how you’re feeling and can give you medicine if you need it to feel better. We also have Psychotherapy, or talk-therapy, where you talk to someone about your feelings and thoughts. Talking things through can really help make life better.
Our clinics and staff are like big helpers in our community. They make sure everyone in Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth counties can get good care for their mental health. If you or someone you love needs someone to talk to, especially during the holiday season, the KCHC/Pillar Health team can help. Call 262-656-0044 to talk about it or set up a time to meet.
