APA Psychology Help Center [web resource]

mental-health66The American Psychological Association (APA) is the leading scientific and professional organization representing psychology in the United States.

APA’s Psychology Help Center is an online consumer resource featuring information related to psychological issues affecting your daily physical and emotional well-being.

Work & School
Learning how to cope with everyday pressures on the job and at school can help us find emotional balance and stay healthy — as well as boosting our productivity and our ability to reach our goals.

Family & Relationships
At every stage of life, our relationships and families present us with both joys and challenges. Learning to manage stress, to understand our own emotions and behaviors, and to communicate effectively can help strengthen our own emotional health, as well as our connections to the important people in our lives.

Health & Emotional Wellness
Our bodies and brains are connected. Stress can take a toll on our physical health, while physical challenges can also bring new stress into our lives. By understanding how stress impacts our health and what steps we can take to stay emotionally balanced, we can lay the foundation for complete wellness.

Disasters & Terrorism
Understanding the effects of traumatic stress and the normal responses that may follow these abnormal events can help you cope with your thoughts and feelings on the path to recovery.

Managed Care & Health Insurance
When seeking help through psychotherapy and selecting a psychologist, it’s important to understand your own health care coverage, or what programs may be available to you if you are uninsured. Knowing which questions to ask and where to turn for help can make the process easier and more straightforward.

APA also offers a Spanish language version of many of these resources in the Centro de Apoyo.

A screening can help you determine if you or someone you care about should contact a mental health professional. Clinical Services Coordinators can arrange a free 30 minute Care Consultation so you can explore options with an expert. Call or email our Clinical Services Coordinators at 650.688.3625 or careteam@chconline.org to set up an initial Consultation appointment.
