PSY 181 Week 5 Discussion: Discussion Board 5
Before we delve into the discussion of seeking help from a mental health professional, consider a time you needed assistance. Many people seek assistance for a variety of things in one’s life: buying a house, a medical ailment, managing debt, improving their game/sport performance, moving, finding a job, etc. When it comes to asking for help with everyday tasks, many people find it easy to reach out for help or guidance. However, when it comes to seeking assistance for mental health, many people tend to be more apprehensive.
Feel free to support this response with personal experience on how you overcome either everyday tasks or mental health barriers.
*Remember to use in-text, and full reference citations in APA format for all content that you bring in from the readings. Your textbook should be your PRIMARY source of information, not an internet search. Feel free to express personal feelings/views/opinions, but also remember to use an academic voice when writing your post and responses. *
Discussions play an integral role in monitoring your course participation throughout the term. You should check back to the weekly discussions multiple times throughout the week to engage in the discussion with your professor and peers. Participation is only counted during the week in which this discussion is assigned. Be sure to appropriately cite any sources you use to support your responses with standard APA citations. Answer the prompt question(s) thoroughly, using at least 150-200 words, and respond to as many of your peers as possible. Note that responses to 2 of your peers are required for full credit. Be sure to answer any additional questions asked by your professor in the discussion threads. Your initial post is due by Day 3 of the current week, and follow up posts to your peers are due on Day 7!
