May is National Mental Health Month

Did you know that each year 1 in 5 U.S. adults will face a mental health challenge and 1 in 25 adults will experience a serious mental illness? Or that over 46 million adults live with and manage mental illness every day?

This month, we’re talking about mental health, overcoming stigma, and getting help. It is estimated that, despite the mental health challenges that affect so many of us at some point in our lives, less than half of us get the help we need. 

A healthy body needs a healthy mind. If you feel that you need help, call us at (360) 676-6177 to learn what treatment and resources are available to you.

She is passionate about child development, including mental health and behavioral development, and she has a background in early childhood education and coaching. Dr. Peterson went to college at Western Washington University and is happy to be back in Bellingham. We could not be happier to have her join our team!
