In this episode, the last of a four part series for #Mentalhealthawareness month, I talk about how to find a therapist that is right for you.
I list out factors to consider about your therapist like: cost, affordability, geographical location, types of licensed therapists, and specialties. I, of course, mention how you should find a provider who matches your style and someone who makes you feel emotionally safe.

Hello listeners! It’s me, Cristal Martinez Acosta, Licensed Professional Counselor, Nationally Certified counselor. It's #mentalhealthawarenessmonth and this episode is part 3 of 4!
In this episode, my special guest, Carlos, speaks about his depression. I have to say, this is one of the most candid and detailed interviews I have had on the podcast.
He talks about how being a gay, depressed college student in a mostly-Hispanic/Catholic community takes its toll. We talk about his struggle with depression, anxiety, and a history of suicidal thoughts. We also discuss medication types, side effects, how to help a depressed person, and of course, THERAPY.
He has a special message for all of you out there who are battling mental illness at 18:15.
If you or someone you know needs immediate counseling from the National Suicide Prevention hotlines you can text the number 741-741 or call 1800-273-8255 any time of day or night.
