When to Seek Psychological Help & Services

There are times in our lives when you, or someone you know, might require some help with a mental health problem. Perhaps it's just because you or they are going through a tough time and need professional assistance to work through the issues.

Often, too often, people wait until there is a crisis in their lives — or they are burned out or deeply depressed — before they seek the psychological services that they may need.

But you don't have to wait until the problems become overwhelming before coming to the professionals at Y2CP. We know that making a decision to see a psychologist is never an easy one. First, you have to come to the realization that you have a problem that you cannot deal with on your own, and then that you want to do something about it.

Even though you may be concerned about talking to someone you don't know, you should be comforted by the fact that you will be dealing with a professional who has the experience and knowledge to make you feel comfortable discussing your concerns and problems, and who will be objective (when others can't or might not be).

As the Canadian Mental Health Association states, what happens if:

  • You are so angry or so sad that you are unable to cope with day-to-day life?
  • Your physical health is suffering and every day you feel like your body is letting you down?
  • You don't know which way to turn, and like a deer caught in the headlights, you are unable to move?
  • Life seems so much better through the bottom of a bottle or with the help of drugs?
  • You are constantly fighting with your spouse, or you have pulled back from your relationship with your partner?
  • There is no joy left in life?
  • Death seems like a better option than life?

In addition, are there other things that are not going well in your life?

  • Are you are having difficulty coping with the death of a relative or loved one?
  • Are you are having trouble sleeping?
  • Are you feeling anxious or depressed?
  • Are things running smoothly for you at the office or in your work environment?
  • Do you have an eating disorder or a gambling problem (or another addiction)?
  • Are you having trouble relating to your children or adolescents?

Sometimes we just need to talk to an objective listener who will focus on, and respond to, our needs. Often we hear people say that "talk is cheap". However, at Y2CP, we believe — on the contrary — that "dialogue is RICH". At Y2 you can have rewarding, two-way conversations with trained professionals. We have an interest in your issues and provide immediate attention to them by employing the right psychologist for you. We offer comprehensive psychological assessments, clear intervention plans, and concrete and measurable results — all focused on improving your general functioning and well-being. And we work with you on your health, hope and happiness.
