When it comes to negative mental health statistics, one of the biggest reasons is usually that people just don't have access to mental healthcare. Maybe their insurance doesn't afford it, or there are no free or low-budget treatment options.
Interestingly enough, Colorado is 17th in mental health access. Yes, we could be doing better, but we are in the higher half. For insurance carriers, Colorado ranks 8th, which is quite good. The problem is that many people just don't want to get the care they need. Perhaps it's due to the stigma, or they feel like they will be judged or put on medication they don't want.
Therapy doesn't have to involve medication, and a therapist will not judge you. They have probably seen a lot worse than your situation. Do not be afraid to see a therapist just because you're afraid of being judged.
Colorado has a lot of work to do when it comes to mental health, and there as a citizen, the change begins with you. Help someone in need. Get help if you are suffering. We all can do this together and improve our mental health crisis.

What a gift it is to help others! I love being able to walk with people on life’s journey, finding friendship and healing along the way.
When I’m not serving our clients at TMS, you can find me enjoying time with my beautiful family, out for a run, or taking photos in this marvelous place we call home.
I was born and raised in Colorado and I received my nursing degree in 1988 from Colorado Mesa University. In 1990 I moved to the Denver area, where I found my love for cardiac nursing in ICU and outpatient settings, and also had my daughter. In 2004, I moved back to the Western Slope, continuing nursing in a cardiac cath lab. Today, I am married to the love of my life of 7 years, together we have 3 children and 8 grandchildren and I have a new career passion in TMS therapy. I witnessed TMS therapy completely obliterate depression and PTSD and make a phenomenal change in a person's life. As I have seen the toll depression can take on a life and the effectiveness of TMS therapy, I have redirected my career to becoming a TMS technician. So, what do I do in my free time? Gardening, canning, quilting, woodworking, fishing, riding horses, working cattle, spending time with my grandkids doing all the above, and enjoying life.
