97.5 Y-Country Medical Minute – It’s OK to Ask for Help

Aired 1.28.2019

Most will agree life can be difficult sometimes.  Between the balancing act of school, work, friends and family, life can become hectic or for some, just plain overwhelming.  Often we feel like we have to have it all together all the time, but sometimes it is helpful to just have someone to talk to outside of our circle.  This week’s Y-Country Medical Minute quickly discusses why it’s ok to ask for help.

Benefits

Counseling services provides a safe and private setting to address personal concerns or problems that cause us distress.  According to the University of Michigan, those who have utilized counseling services have reported a reduction in distress after their first meeting while for others it takes additional sessions.  

Whether the issue be anxiety, academic stress, loss of a loved one, stress from work, relationship troubles or other, counseling services give individuals a safe place to talk and work through their distress. 

Where can I go?
