Counseling Awareness Month is observed during April and is sponsored by the The American Counseling Association (ACA). The American Counseling Association (ACA) honors 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 could benefit from it.
Seeking counseling is a way to proactively manage your problems. If you have problems that impair your ability to function day to day, a counselor can teach you skills to handle difficult times. In addition, some people seek counseling services to improve their already great lives. Counseling can help people develop skills that will help them excel in specific areas such as sports, business, and leadership.
