For many people with disabilities and mental illness, the biggest challenge of living with a disability is not their disability itself, but the way society responds to that disability. Persons with mental illness and intellectual and developmental disabilities often face stigma and discrimination. This can result in feelings of isolation, depression, and emotional distress.
People who live with mental illness and disabilities may find help in counseling. At Harmony Center, Inc., our counselors can support a client to manage the stress of disability, explore feelings of loneliness and isolation that come from stigma and discrimination, and to navigate the effects of disability on relationships. Our counselors can also advocate for your needs, help you figure out your goals, enhance your self-confidence, and help you change behaviors that may be holding you back from living a happy, fulfilled life.
Let us help you find a home. For more information, contact us at 225-383-9139 to schedule a pre-placement interview.
