REACH OUT FOR HELP
There are many paths to recovery from a mental and/or substance use disorder and several ways to get help. If you, a family member, or friend needs help, resources are available. You are not alone. A person with a mental and/or substance use disorder may find it difficult to take the first step toward finding help, but reaching out for support can make a positive impact. Recognizing the signs and symptoms of a mental health or substance use problem is the first step toward obtaining help and getting better. Many options are available to help people seek treatment and sustain recovery. Whatever path a person chooses, it is important that each individual finds the treatment and support that work best for him or her.
Mental Health America of Kentucky provides an online screening page for mood disorders, anxiety disorders and substance abuse. These free screenings are taken anonymously. The screenings are provided so that you may find out – in a few minutes – whether or not professional consultation would be helpful to you.
Mental Health America of Kentucky serves to advance mental health wellness using evidence-based treatment for mental illness. We provide pubic education and a support network for hope and recovery. We envision a day in which mental health is health, not a separate issue about which we should be ashamed. We envision a world in which there is no more discrimination against people with mental and addictive disorders. We believe that mental illness and addictions are treatable and recovery is possible.
