Before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. were diagnosed with a mental health disease. Now the number of Americans seeking help to improve mental health is higher than ever. Southwest Louisiana, in particular, is facing a unique set of circumstances following natural disasters in addition to the pandemic. There are many resources and treatments for managing your mental health, but beginning the conversation with a professional is the first step to mental wellness.
