When I opened Laura Gatien & Associates Counselling Services, my mental health practice, I was scared and surprised that people would actually pay me to talk to them (having come from years in government, this was a huge change), but I was determined to reduce stigma and increase access to mental health therapy.
I continually push for change in the culture and perception around mental health by demystifying mental health treatment and filling gaps in the system. Mental health is a continuum that requires support at times, just like any other health issue. I want to make going to a therapist as normal as going to a dentist - so that the doors are wide open for everyone to get the help they need to reduce mental suffering and maintain wellness in their life. This makes for healthier families and a better society overall.
