Counseling Awareness Month
April 1 – April 30 CDT
Counseling Awareness Month is observed during April, honoring mental health counselors, school and college counselors, substance abuse counselors, and career counselors.
Counseling Awareness Month encourages people to learn about professional counselors and the benefits of counseling. Many people are afraid to seek counseling, even though they may benefit from it.
Seeking counseling is a way to proactively manage problems. If one has problems that impair the ability to function day to day, a counselor can teach skills to handle difficult times. In addition, some people seek counseling services to improve already great lives. Counseling has the potential to help people develop skills that help them excel in specific areas such as sports, business, and leadership.
