Guide to Finding Mental Health Professionals in Columbus, Ohio

Columbus, Ohio is not only the 14th most populated city in the United States, but it is also the biggest in the state. As the capital of Ohio, Columbus is routinely one of the most popular metropolitan areas in the region and is also one of the fastest-growing large cities in the United States.

Columbus doesn’t only have a large population, but as it continues to grow it is also developing a very diverse population as well. This population is no stranger to several different concerns, one of the most pressing being high school drop out rates. At 14 of the 17 high schools in Columbus, the drop out rate is more than 40 percent. Most of these schools are actually defined as “dropout factories” where more than 60 percent of students never make it to graduation day.

Unfortunately, these high dropout rates ultimately lead to issues with poverty and depression. In fact, there are many mental illnesses, problems with low self-esteem and drug and alcohol addiction. Those who drop out of high school also tend to struggle with finding stable employment and financial woes, which can lead to problems with stress and anxiety as well.

As problems like this continue to plague Columbus, more and more residents of Ohio’s capital need professional counseling services. A licensed therapist can help with issues ranging from anxiety and depression to severe addition. However, every person is different and requires different services from their therapist. Therefore, before you start looking for a licensed Columbus therapist, it is important to ask yourself a few questions in order to make sure you are finding the right professional for the job.

  • What is the main issue I’m seeking help for?
  • What are my goals for therapy?
  • Am I looking to be treated with drugs or medications, or do I just want a therapist I can talk with?
  • Do I prefer a male or female therapist?
  • Am I looking for a therapist to treat a specific issue, or do I want longer-term counseling to help support my life?
  • Am I someone who will drive or commute to see the right therapist? Or do I need someone who is as close by as possible to ensure that I go?
  • Do I feel like my issue requires specialized attention or a therapist with a certain degree or specialty (such as drug addiction)?

Take your time to really think about these questions and the answers that you come up with. This will help you get a better vision of who the right type of therapist for you is. Once you have an idea of the ideal therapist to help you with your mental health concerns, you should also check with your health insurance provider. You may be limited on which health professionals you can work with based on your health insurance.

The city of Columbus has already taken steps to address growing need for mental health professionals in Franklin County.

Remember, this individual is instrumental to your success and to your overall mental health, so you want to take the time to make certain you have the right fit.
