RESOLUTION: EVALUATE YOUR MENTAL HEALTH IN 2019

Executive Director, California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT)

The New Year provides the perfect opportunity to start anew. As we close the door on an extremely stressful year, Californians might be feeling more anxiety than usual. From wildfires and changes in weather, to mass shootings and the humanitarian crisis at the border it is understandable for Californians to be going into 2019 with concern and trepidation. With his swearing in, Governor Gavin Newsom vowed to support mental health, taking a step in the right direction in helping the state alleviate the stigma.

But how can families recognize when stress and anxiety have exceeded manageable levels and help is needed? Where can a person turn? Nabil El-Ghoroury, Executive Director of the California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists is available to discuss these issues and where Californians can go for help.
