Mental health awareness is so important. Here at Detroit Mom, we want to support you however we can. So, we’ve put together a guide to therapists in and around Detroit, with the help of the readers in our community. These therapists are personally recommended by our readers, some of whom have also shared why they recommend seeing the specific provider. If you need support, and are looking for a therapist, please know that you aren’t alone. We are here for you, and so are the readers in our community.
In addition to our guide, we also have a Mental Health Community Group on Facebook that you can request to join. In the group, you’ll find local mothers who are walking similar paths as you. You’ll find support, encouragement, and maybe even a few new friends. On our main website, you’ll also find personal posts from some of our contributors about their journeys with mental health.
We hope this guide to therapists in and around Detroit will be beneficial to you. If you know of therapists that we can add to our list, please let us know. Bookmark this post; we will update it periodically. And of course, feel free to share with a friend who may be looking for support.
