We all are aware that taking care of health is highly critical, no matter what the age. And when we talk about health, it is typically considered physical health. But it is now more than ever that we need to accept mental and physical health are part and parcel of an individual’s overall health and well-being.
No matter what the diagnosis, psychologists, and counselors can evaluate emotional challenges and offer advice, support, and solutions to tackle them better.
