The Challenge of Finding a Suitable Therapist in Sunrise, Florida

In Broward County, where Sunrise is located, residents are allowed to weigh in on issues that matter to them, including serious health issues, staying in school and finding work for young people. These are key elements of solving the mental health crisis, but only part of the full picture.

The stigma attached to mental illness is a big part of the problem when it comes to seeking help to improve mental health. Many also lack the knowledge regarding where to find the right therapist or health care professional to help them learn to deal with their illness.
