When symptoms from mood and mental health disorders are left untreated, they can be completely debilitating. Those who suffer from these disorders often undergo a substantial amount of distress, potentially resulting in maladaptive coping mechanisms and self-destructive behaviors. Unrest from the severity of your symptoms, combined with self-destructive behaviors, can be devastating and cause you to feel an overwhelming sense of hopelessness. At Life Healing Center, we are proud to offer the Empowerment Program for those suffering from mood and mental health disorders.
