Are You in Need of Mental Health Counseling?

As the effects of mental illnesses have become more apparent to the public, quality mental health counseling has never been more important. There is no single cause for mental illness. Various factors contribute to poor mental health, such as:
  • Trauma or abuse
  • Chronic medical conditions
  • Social isolation
  • Drug abuse
More than 20% of American adults have experienced a mental health issue at some point in their lives. Visit St. Thomas and learn more about our mental health counseling services.

April Is Alcohol Awareness Month

As festival season rolls around in New Orleans, it's important to know how to have fun in a safe, responsible way. April is Alcohol Awareness Month, and though some alcohol consumption is harmless, binge drinking and heavy drinking can have disastrous, unintended consequences. Here are some tips from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to prevent excessive alcohol use:
  • Monitor how many drinks you consume on a weekly basis.
  • Do not drink alcohol if you are underage, pregnant, or about to perform complex tasks (like driving).
  • Talk with your health care provider about your drinking behavior and seek counseling if you need it. 
At St. Thomas, we provide treatment and preventative care to all our patients. Our mission is to fight back against common health problems by treating and educating our community.
