Start your mental health journey at St. Ann



MONROE, La. – Are you worrying often or feeling sad? Do daily stressors make it difficult for you to function at work or at school? Have you lost interest in things you used to love? Would you like help dealing with COVID-19 related stress?

For most of us, the past year has been one of the most difficult for a number of reasons. Whether it’s fear of COVID, loneliness from stay-at-home orders, loss of a job, or concerns about getting back to a “new normal,” there has been more to cope with than ever before.

Morgan Shirley, LMSW states, “Prioritizing your mental health and wellbeing have never been more important, especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

If you’re navigating these feelings for the first time, it can be hard to know where to start. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to mental health. Knowing your options can help you feel empowered to take the next step for treatment.

  • Individual therapy: Meeting one-on-one with a licensed therapist. Frequency and visit type are largely dependent on your individual needs.
  • Group therapy: Meeting in a group setting with other individuals experiencing similar stressors or situations that is facilitated by a licensed therapist in a supportive, non-judgmental atmosphere.
  • Psychiatric Evaluation and Medication management: Evaluation by psychiatrist to include diagnosis, treatment planning, and – if necessary – ongoing medication management.
  • Wellness Education: Ongoing education regarding mindfulness, coping skills, and stress-management.
