Mental Health Monday: The Ultimate Guide to Therapy

I know I say this a lot, but in a society that benefits from the working class denying their emotional needs, it bears repeating: therapy is good for everyone. Everyone. Regardless of if you have a mental illness or not, therapy can help everyone in some way. For a long time, therapy just helped me survive my extremely depressed, self-loathing mind, but even now that my symptoms are much more manageable, I still get so many benefits from therapy.

Today’s post is an ultimate guide, a masterpost full of links regarding every aspect of therapy I could think of. Feel free to browse and click on whatever you need right now, bookmark it and come back later, or share with a friend who might need the resources as well.

  1. This post is exactly what I needed. I have been denying therapy for a while because I felt I could handle it on my own and it was too expensive. Your links on how to afford therapy are very helpful!
