Mental health insights
In the U.S., about 70% of adults have experienced some sort of traumatic event at least once. That’s the equivalent of 223.4 million people. Trauma is an incredibly intense emotional response to an experience that threatens your health, physical or emotional.

Wedding bells aren’t ringing as much nowadays. According to U.S. Census Bureau statistics, more than 1 in 3 (34%) people 15 years or older have never been married in 2022. That’s up from about 1 in 4 (23%) in 1950. So, we wanted to ask why fewer people are walking down the aisle.
Finding a therapist and finding the right therapist for you aren’t always the same. It’s not as simple as it should be. Maybe you find a great therapist, but after a few sessions, you’re having doubts. Or perhaps you’re seeing a couple of red flags, and it’s time to switch therapists.
While you can show up to therapy without any preparation and be completely fine, it can help to prepare a little if you’re nervous. If you have never been to therapy before and don’t know what to expect, a new experience can feel daunting in addition to whatever you may be feeling.
