Unfortunately, many people with problems that stop them from feeling good and functioning properly don’t seek professional help. Mental health professionals can help come up with a plan to solve problems, heal pains from the past, and build your self-confidence.

Sometimes, medication, other therapy methods, or the combination are needed. But suicide is never a good option.
