A Salute to Our Counselors: #BurnBrightNotOut

Apr 10, 2020 | Blog, Careers, Mental Health

April marks Counseling Awareness Month, a time to honor mental health, substance abuse, and school counselors.

We recognize and appreciate our dedicated Coleman professionals that are working tirelessly in an environment of unprecedented unemployment, uncertainty, and stress.

In this turbulent time of COVID-19, seeking counseling is a proactive way to manage your problems, whether it’s the loss of a job, shifting to working from home, or dealing effectively with other family members that are generally not in your home 24/7.

Counseling can help you develop new skills and put together a plan to cope with whatever life experiences have come your way. Professional counselors assist in bringing you back to a state of restfulness and balance.

Counseling is a safe place to express any feelings you may have difficulty sharing with your employer, family members, and friends. Counseling can touch you at any point in your lifespan from childhood through your senior years.

The infographic below represents the number/type of counselors in the United States and the percentage of individuals who have sought counseling.
