Guide to Finding Mental Health Professionals in Indianapolis

Mental Health in Indianapolis

Indianapolis is the 16th most populous city in the U.S. with an estimated 863,002 residents as of 2017. As one of the largest cities in the American Midwest, its population has had to adjust to the changing economics brought on by deindustrialization. Businesses in the auto manufacturing industry have left which has also meant long-standing jobs leaving the city. As the times change, new markets emerge but many residents may feel left behind or improperly prepared to deal with the adjustment. The stresses of a shifting and uncertain economy can leave individuals and households at risk of not only financial worries but also mental health issues.

A Concerning Trend

The changing landscape of the city may perhaps be related to a concerning trend that has been occurring throughout the state of Indiana. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Indiana’s suicide rate has increased 31.9 percent between 1999 and 2016.

Being the capital of Indiana means that Indianapolis is positioned to play an important role in helping to change the trajectory of this trend. The importance of being able to connect with quality mental health professionals in the Indianapolis area is paramount to tackling such an important issue.

If you are suffering from depression, undue stress, or are afflicted by some other condition that is affecting your quality of life you may consider reaching out for assistance- we can help in your search for an Indianapolis mental health professional or therapist.  We want to be able to connect you with the help that you need and with a professional that can work around your available hours.

It can take time to recognize that you need some additional support, but when you are ready to find the right therapist in the Indianapolis area, we want to make your search as smooth as possible. Before you begin looking at the different types of mental health professionals that are available, it is a good idea to think about what your specific needs are.

Where to Begin Your Search

The guiding questions that can help improve your search should be centered around why you’re seeking help. The clearer you are about your objective and what issues you are dealing with, the better you will be at identifying who might be able to provide the help that you need.  You may want to take an inventory of your intentions and preferences before beginning your search. Some of the questions you might want to ask yourself are:

  • What do you hope to get out of the therapeutic process?
  • Have you considered whether you might feel more comfortable talking with a man or a woman? (Perhaps for you the gender of the therapist is a non-issue.)
  • How long are you willing to commit to meeting with a therapist?
  • Do you require the services of a mental health professional that has a specialization in your area of concern?

 

Asking yourself the above questions will give you a better idea of what you are looking for in the process and can help focus your search for a mental health professional that is the right fit. Finding someone that you can have clear communication with is an integral part of effective treatment.

Health Insurance Considerations

Health insurance may be another consideration for you in your search for a therapist. Your insurance provider might require that you choose from their own network of mental health professionals, so this will narrow down the people who may be available to you. Be sure to get in touch with your health insurance company to find out which therapists and mental health professionals are covered under your plan.

How E-Counseling.com Can Help You Connect with an Indianapolis Mental Health Professional

Our site can connect you with Indianapolis therapists or mental health professionals that provide the services you need. You can look through the detailed profiles and bios to find potential candidates to work with. It is a good idea to contact the ones you think may be a good fit. This will be a good opportunity to ask whatever additional questions you might have. An initial phone call may help give you a feel for the rapport between you and the therapist. If you can find someone who you feel understands you, and that you can communicate well with, then they may be a great resource to go to when you need help working through a mental health crisis.

Finding the right mental health professional could be the first step to living a better quality of life.
