When is the best time to seek help?
Anytime. Psychiatrists provide support. That support may be in the form of talking or in the form of medication. Mental health concerns are real, and medication is no sign of weakness. It is a way to stabilize and get your head above water as you conquer your struggles.
I'm worried, I've never been to a psychiatrist before.
That makes sense. When you contact MIS, you will often reach Dr. Monterroso, that will talk with you to get a better understanding of what to expect before you ever walk into the room.
