There are different areas of our lives that we may not be at peace with:
It is possible to experience greater peace in your life and to feel that you are more fulfilled, especially with affordable mental health services. It is possible to feel the changes that you are wanting to experience, such as:
- feeling that you are able to tackle what life is dealing you
- having a feeling that you are a person you can be proud of
- able to keep it so that your personal problems don’t cause problems in your relationships
- determine what should happen with your relationship
- renew sparks that once existed with your partner
- be able to be assertive so others listen to you without you having to get aggressive
- learn better ways of trying to get what will improve your life
- being able to continue to have a full life, even without forgetting someone who died
- experiencing better understanding with your partner through improved communication
- managing your anger so that you can address things that are problems without getting in trouble
There are ways that you are able to improve your life and relationships. This is possible.
If you are looking for peace and wholeness in your life, you are not alone and you don’t have to walk this journey alone. Having someone to talk to and to explore ways forward with is something everyone is deserving. In the past, options for this in the Bronx and Northern Manhattan were limited. Journey to Peace wants you to be able to live life fully with healthy mind, healthy emotions and healthy relationships. We want you to find affordable mental health.
Some people say that you should not seek help on your journey to peace.
Perhaps I can just do this on my own…
When you work with one of our staff members, you remain in charge of your life. You are simply using the expertise of the staff member to help you as you walk along on your journey. An advantage of using one of our staff members is that not only do they have knowledge and experience about how people find a way forward but they also are someone who is not otherwise involved in your life so they do not have their own biases. Those who are wise and strong use all of the resources available to them.
But what would others say?
Other people are hesitant to seek help out of concern about what others would say. The first thing to know is that we take the confidentiality and privacy of those we work with very seriously. Beyond this, you should also know that most people experience times in their lives when they need to work on things to get back to peace and wholeness. There is nothing to be ashamed of when this is the case and you need someone with you on your journey back to healthy situations. Finally, some people may be concerned about how whether their faith will be respected. Not only do we respect your faith in our work together but we also believe that your journey is one that can lead you back to experiencing life abundantly.
Can I afford it?
We also understand that finances can be a factor in whether people are able to have someone walk with them on their journey. Journey to Peace was started as a program within Seeking Shalom to provide affordable mental health services to those in the Bronx and Northern Manhattan who are uninsured or whose insurance does not provide sufficient options in the area. For those eligible for the program, group programs are offered at $20 per person per session and other sessions are offered at $30. Those not eligible for this program have affordable mental health options through Seeking Shalom.
