Everyday life presents different challenges to us all. While everyone feels worried, anxious, sad or stressed at times, when those feelings persist they may become severe enough to interfere with your daily life. It is important to remember that even people with good emotional health can sometimes experience distress and can benefit from professional consultation.

Mental health…

  • Relates to how we think, feel, and act as we cope with life.
  • Helps us determine how we handle stress, relate to others and make choices.
Like physical health, attention to individual and family mental health issues is extremely important at all stages of life.

Today, the most common causes of death and illness are strongly related to a person’s behavioral choices. These include:

  • Smoking cigarettes
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Poor diet
  • Poor coping skills
Fortunately, we can help to change this. By learning better coping skills and ways to control negative thoughts and behaviors, you can make positive healthy changes to your life.

The Child Anxiety Program is run within the PCC to provide psychological services to children experiencing problems with anxiety. Please visit the Child Anxiety Program for more information.
