Family structure, life circumstances, trauma and grief can challenge the way we think and feel. Our emotions are often triggered by these life circumstances causing negative behavioral responses such as anxiety, angry outbursts, obsessive-compulsive disorders, drug addiction, alcoholism, sexual addiction, gambling, depression, and relationship conflict. The consequences of these behaviors cause heartache and pain in our lives and often have adverse effects on the people around us. Therapy can show you how negative behaviors limit... Read More

Overview of Mental Health Resources in Victorville

Victorville, California is located in southwestern San Bernardino County and is one of the largest centers in the High Desert region. As of 2013, the population of Victorville was estimated at 121,096. With affordable housing and a healthy economy supported by the healthcare, education, and transport industries the area is vibrant and growing. However, mental health issues such as depression and suicide remain a concern in the High Desert area and echo a growing trend throughout the state. The number of people within San Bernardino County needing access to public mental health services has been on the rise.

An Issue for All Ages

It is true that mental health issues affect people of all ages but it especially hits hard for the younger population. It has been reported in California that approximately 30% of high school students have had feelings of sadness or hopelessness. This type of condition can worsen without the proper outlets or emotional assistance to learn how to deal with these feelings.

The city of Victorville, being a significant area within San Bernardino County, can play a large role in improving the conditions for residents of the area and leading a path for other California cities to follow. Access to quality mental health services is something that each city should strive for.

If you are experiencing depression, sadness, stress, or another condition that is affecting your ability to lead the life that you want, it may be time for you to seek assistance. We can help you find the right Victorville mental health professional or therapist. Our aim is to make it easier for you to connect with someone that can understand what you are going through and can work with you on your schedule.

Admitting that you need help is not always easy, but when you feel that it is time to find a therapist in the Victorville area, we want to make the search process as simple as possible for you. Before you even begin to see what options are available to you, we suggest that you begin by thinking about your own needs and preferences first.

The Key Questions to Ask Yourself

You will have a much easier time identifying which services might be a fit for you if you start with a self-evaluation about what your needs are. The more clarity you have about why you are looking to work with a mental health professional the better you will able to identify the type of services you need. Take a moment to ask yourself a few questions such as:

  • How long have you been feeling the way that you do?
  • Why do you feel that you need the help of a mental health professional now?
  • What do you hope to get out of the therapeutic process?
  • Are you more comfortable talking with a man or a woman? (Perhaps for you the gender of the therapist is a non-issue.)
  • Over what time-frame are you willing to commit to meeting with a therapist?
  • Do you require the services of a mental health professional that specializes in your particular area of concern (such as addiction or an eating disorder)?

These questions are a good place to start and can get you thinking about what other important aspects of your unique case may be worth mentioning to a professional at the outset. The idea is that by learning more about yourself you’ll be better able to find someone with whom you can clearly communicate.

Will Your Health Insurance Pay?

For many, the cost of mental health services will be a big factor in determining whether they will be able to get the help they need. So, it is worthwhile to find out if your health insurance plan covers any or all treatment options. Be sure to get in touch with your insurance company. You may find that they have a directory of preferred professionals and you can save a significant amount by choosing someone already approved by your plan.
