LEE COUNTY COMMUNITY PARTNERS REESTABLISHING MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES

Lee County, NC — August 31, 2022 — Although many of us usually recognize when to treat physical injuries, it may be more challenging to identify mental health issues.  Just like staying in shape physically, maintaining your mental health is essential to your overall well-being at every stage of life.

Treatment can make a difference in your health and well-being.  Connecting with care to receive some method of treatment has far-reaching benefits.  These benefits include strengthening existing relationships, reigniting a sense of purpose, enjoying a brighter outlook on life and much more.

Treatment refers to counseling, possible medication, or any other number of approaches to mental health care.  No matter the type of treatment, each has the ability to produce positive and meaningful changes in symptoms and an overall improved quality of life after just a brief amount of time.

Daymark Recovery Services, Central Carolina Hospital and the Lee County Division of Social Services and Health Department are partnering to assure these services are available for all who are interested in improving their whole health.  Whole health centers around what matters to you, not what is wrong with you.  We will work collaboratively to get to know you as a person before working with you to develop a personalized health plan based on your values, needs and goals.

“These services were being utilized at the Lee County Government Center until the beginning of the pandemic and at that time we paused the services” said Heath Cain, Lee County Health Director.  “We are challenged now to discover our new normal post-pandemic.  The services and treatment which will be provided are some of the many tools we will utilize to improve the overall health of our community and our residents”.

For more information concerning these types of services, please inquire to any of the community partners mentioned above and they can provide you the necessary information you need to begin the path to improving your whole health.

For media inquiries, please contact Hailey Hall, Communications Specialist/Clerk to the Board of Commissioners at (919) 718-4605 or hhall@leecountync.gov.
