Foothills Counseling Center observes Mental Health Month

If you’re feeling stressed or nervous during these days of COVID-19, you are not alone. Uncertainty, physical distancing, the drumbeat of round-the-clock news, empty grocery shelves, and the feeling of not being safe are extremely stressful, but, what you are feeling is common around the world.

Mental health challenges are a concern at any time in our lives, but during this unprecedented pandemic that has created the need for social distancing, the lack of moments to be “with” others for such long stretches of time can be paralyzing. Foothills counselors have adapted to the lack of “in-person” office appointments by using all the technical tools available, and “face-to-face” therapy has not been interrupted.

Foothills charges clients on a sliding scale fee, which means you pay based on your income, or on what you can afford. We are supported by contributions, the United Way, and our own fundraising events. Since the pandemic, those events have been put on hold, and we have had to adapt to seeking funds in other ways. We ask that you please consider adding Foothills to your charitable donation list and help us continue providing these life-changing services to our community.

These past few months have been tough, and during this time of isolation, uncertainty, and tragedy, it is vital that no one feels alone in their mental health journey. Let’s work together and make mental health for everyone a priority, and come out stronger on the other side!
