Family, friends and community can be excellent sources of support and can be there for you when you need help the most. However, a trained counselor can provide you with additional support that can add to the help you receive at home or in your community. A counselor may work with you to develop new skills and coping mechanisms that help you feel better and more capable of handling problems on your own in the future. Counselors may also help you to discuss situations in which you are receiving conflicting advice from friends or family.
