FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 8, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — HIGH-ACHIEVERS ALSO REQUIRE BEHAVIORAL HEALTH TREATMENT
As the country recovers from Covid-19 fatigue, rampant inflation, and a general state of heightened anxiety, mental health awareness is at the forefront of our minds. Round-the-clock news reporting, viral social media stories, and a new focus on maintaining behavioral health wellness bombard us with a sense of dread – “Am I okay emotionally?” “Why do I feel down today?” “Do I need professional help?”
The simple answer is – “yes, you are okay emotionally, it’s okay to feel down at times and sure, we could all use some counseling.” As community-based care centers, schools, and even employers are now repeating this same message and offering mental health care services to increasing numbers of people, there is a surprising niche of the population that is also recognizing the need to ask for help.
Call them the one-percenters, high-achievers, or anything else – the reality is those who (seemingly) do not have a care in the world struggle with the same anxiety, concerns, and human emotions we all do. Chief executive officers, business owners, professional athletes, actors, and those with extreme wealth; these bon vivant carefree few not only share the same frailties and flaws that mere-mortals do, but they also often carry enhanced responsibilities and challenges that come from achieving extreme success. The spotlight is on them – be it market watchers, employees’ dependent upon them as an owner, or the media scoping them out for the first sign of fragility; those in this position cannot or will not show any weakness for fear of shame or ostracizing. Now, many in this segment are stepping out from behind the curtain and asking for help. Some in a public manner and others quietly, behind the scenes. The reasons do not matter, the point is we all need to find equilibrium and support that enables us to function at our best – in mind, body, and spirit.
