Family counseling can help individuals and families cope with a multitude of mental health conditions
The stigmatization that occurs to the individual identified as “mentally ill” is one of the greatest barriers of mental health treatment. As a result, when individuals struggle, they often need the support of others to encourage them to make positive change.
We all know that when one family member is struggling, everyone struggles. Since mental health issues impact the entire family, it makes sense to treat the whole family. At Oregon Counseling, our approach to counseling includes helping families adjust, realign and cope with trauma, anxiety, depression, and change that naturally impacts the whole family.
Research on family therapy suggests that it is an ideal approach for the treatment of typically ‘individual’ mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety. If you really think about this, it makes a lot of sense. Depression does not occur in a vacuum. It affects (and is impacted by) family and close friends.
