    [post_content] => In these unprecedented times we’re all trying to adjust to a ‘new normal,’ and these adjustments can impact our mental health. The prevalence of stress - and distress - born from uncertainty is well documented. Many wait until they are at ‘breaking point’ before accessing a psychologist’s services. It’s our collective responsibility to remove the stigma around seeking support from a psychologist, and mental health disorders.

 

While the process of obtaining psychological support is tailored to each individual, common reasons people seek support include:
<ul>
 	<li>Lack of direction</li>
 	<li>Assessments and ongoing interventions around social, educational or occupational difficulties</li>
 	<li>Relationship difficulties</li>
 	<li>Memory or cognitive concerns</li>
 	<li>Mood or behaviour problems</li>
 	<li>Grief and loss</li>
</ul>
Psychological services offer a safe space to receive clinical advice from an expert as you work toward your mental health and wellbeing goals. <a href="https://humanityhealthgroup.com.au/">Humanity Health Group</a> provides a variety of support including individual assessments and interventions, group programs and workplace programs delivered via face-to-face and digital platforms. Receiving psychological support produces a plethora of positive outcomes, including:
<ul>
 	<li>A better understanding of the presenting problem and how to manage it</li>
 	<li>Improved/strengthened coping responses</li>
 	<li>Effective problem solving and decision making</li>
 	<li>Insights into the link between thinking, feeling and behaviour</li>
 	<li>Development of strategies that break unhealthy cycles</li>
 	<li>Self-efficacy and confidence</li>
 	<li>Clarity about values and goals</li>
 	<li>Effective skills in managing distress</li>
 	<li>Improved communication with others</li>
</ul>

Psychologists work in many settings including private practice, community agencies, hospitals, aged care facilities, schools and correctional facilities. To access a psychologist, we recommend speaking with your GP. You can find psychologists near you by searching online or via location tools such as the <a href="https://www.psychology.org.au/for-the-public/about-psychology/how-to-access-a-psychologist">APS Find a Psychologist Service</a> and Health Direct Service Finder (Psychology). You may have access to a psychologist through your workplace under an Employee Assistance Program.

<strong> </strong>

Like most health or stress problems, the earlier you seek intervention the better. Mental and emotional health problems are part of the overall wellbeing spectrum - start a conversation today, and receive the support you need.
