Last year, President Obama called for the hiring of 1,600 new mental health care providers to assist veterans across the nation. In June 2013 the state of Alabama gained 43 new mental health professionals at the VA Medical Center in Birmingham. This addition means that veterans in towns like Gadsden, AL, now have better access to mental health care.

The Process of Selection

Recovering from a mental health disorder usually begins with treatment. The key to finding the best care for a loved one is to find a provider or program that is suited to the individual. Below are some factors to consider when searching for appropriate mental health treatment for someone you care about:

  • Provider. Psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed counselors, and others all treat mental health disorders. But not all providers offer the same level of care, nor do all have the same level of education or experience.
  • Personality. Assess whether or not the treatment method suits the individual’s personality. Also, consider whether or not the individual and the care provider can relate to each other.
  • Cost. Know what the provider charges per session and if they participate with the individual’s insurance company. If the individual has to pay out of pocket, learn what payment options are available.
  • Location. Since many families choose to be involved in the individual’s treatment process, choose a convenient location to facilitate this involvement.
