Mental Health Resources

Mental health refers to our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. Our mental health affects how we think, feel, act, relate to others, handle stress, make choices, and more. A mental health condition affects a person's thinking, feeling, or mood. Such conditions may affect someone's ability to relate to others and function each day. It's important to note that every person will have a different experience, even if they have been diagnosed with the same mental health condition.

Mental health conditions are very common, and you are not alone. Mental health conditions are also very treatable but need ongoing care like any other medical concern. Your NWPC provider can help you find the care you need. You can meet our providers and schedule an appointment here. 

Our care team has also put together the following list of resources for mental health if you are in need of more immediate support and care. If you are having a crisis, thinking about hurting yourself or others, or experiencing a mental health emergency, call 911 or go your nearest Emergency Room.
