Mental Health

Because mental health issues are often unique and require highly specialized solutions, there are few general resources available for it. You may be able to find some support including counseling and primary care through the Community Mental Health Center network, or through some specialized or private clinics. The best way to find mental health care is often through a direct referral from a physician or other health care provider.
