MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES in Surfside Beach with an emphasis on prevention of long-term struggles.
For over 35 years I have worked in social services, starting my career as an interpreter for the Deaf. Working with people of all walks of life, many different cultures, ages and functioning levels has enabled me to grasp that there is a natural response to stress in all of us. Yet very few people have been taught or understand it. When people understand something, they can learn new ways to deal with it and have better mental health.In 1995 I started my career in mental health serving adults and children. My primary focus has been working with people who have survived trauma. Recently, I decided to make a change in my career after a colleague committed suicide. I thought, "If a mental health professional isn't even comfortable seeking help, how can we expect the general public to seek help?" This event stunned me and prompted me to start this website. It occurred to me the extent that mental illness is a stigma and needs to be approached in a new way. I hope that we can start a conversation about actually preventing mental health problems, and by doing so, preventing more violence, grief and loss in the world.
