Overview of Mental health Resources in Newport News, Virginia

Located within the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, Newport News is home to nearly 185,000 residents and is considered the fifth-most populous city in the state. Known for having access to the waterfront, the city is on the end of the Virginia Peninsula off the James River in the Hampton Roads Harbor. Military, Aerospace and shipbuilding account for the major industries of Newport News. Newport News Shipbuilding is the city’s largest employer (over 15,000 employees) followed by CSX Transportation due to the city’s location next to the Hampton Roads rail network which provides unique advantages for the area. Education and research are key factors in Newport News’ economy as the city is home to the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator, a U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science national laboratory. With over 2,000 scientists and 675 employees, the facility is world-renowned for its research.

Additionally, there are many military facilities within the area including Fort Monroe, Langley Air Force Base, Naval Weapons Station Yorktown and Camp Peary. Near the city is the Naval Station Norfolk which is considered the world’s largest naval base. With Air Force, Army, Coast Guard and a Marine presence, Newport News military presence is 5.64% of the population.

The city, along with the state of Virginia, has seen a 6% increase in prevalent mental health cases amongst the state’s adults. State government does trend towards institutional spending (Virginia is ranked 9th in the country) as part of their health investment plan. When looking at community-based care, the state is ranked as low as 39th in the country for mental health. For those individuals with any mental illness, 50% of adults surveyed did not receive mental health treatment or counseling even though they recognized there was an issue.

Research has shown that one-third of adult health issues are due to mental health.  Whether it is you or someone you know, this means that you are not alone.  If you feel anxious, suffer from schizophrenia, or feel overwhelmed, the first step is recognizing that you need help. Treatment is important and we are here as our community of Newport News medical professionals that will aid you in your needs. The first step is to determine the symptoms that affect your well-being even if you just don’t feel like yourself anymore. In doing so, our site will help you narrow down the therapist that can help you create solutions to your problems. Take a moment to review their profiles, blogs, and bios to ensure that their specialties meet your needs. When researching your potential therapist, consider the following questions:

•    Why am I seeking help?
•    What are my goals in therapy?
•    Am I more comfortable with a man or a woman?
•    Are there any personal aspects I’m not willing to discuss?
•    Do I want to be able to lead the discussion, or have it led?
•    How long do I plan to attend therapy?
•    Does my problem need extra specialization?

Engaging in effective treatments from one of our licensed therapists will help you on the path to living a successful and productive life. Many mental health issues can affect you, how you think and feel on a daily basis. Decide how often you need to visit your therapist and make sure that their office is located near where you work or live. This will increase your chances of keeping your appointment times, which is important in making your treatment journey successful. Most offices are open only during the work day so if you need appointments outside the typical 9-5 work hours, add that request to your list of interview questions. These sessions will help you build a relationship with your chosen professional so take time to set-up a phone interview with them. It is important that you feel that you can connect with your potential therapist, learn their style and if they seem engaged in the conversation.

There is no “one size fits all” type of mental health treatment and it will take time for you find the right therapist to help with the issues you have been struggling with for a while like an eating disorder or post-traumatic stress disorder.  Many individuals suffer from mental health concerns at various times in their life. It is a concern to take seriously when you notice symptoms and ongoing signs that prohibit your ability to function in society, causes frequent stress and does not allow you to enjoy life. Take your time to ask plenty of questions and to get to know your practitioner. Each will have a different skill set and that will help you achieve your personal goals while improving your life. The time spent researching our Newport News directory of professionals is an investment in a better you and future.
