Guide to Mental Health Professionals in New Orleans, Louisiana

New Orleans, Louisiana is known to many as a major cultural landmark of the United States. Known for its Mardi Gras events as well as other events that revolve around its culture and origin of being primarily inhabited by French colonizers in times past, New Orleans is known as a city that is in a constant state of celebration.

However, like any other city, like New Orleans is not always in a constant state of celebration, and anyone who lives there are subject to stress and other mental health issues that can and do warrant seeing a mental health professional. This will serve as a guide to not only finding mental health professionals in New Orleans but will also serve as a guide to facts about New Orleans that could warrant seeing a mental health professional.

The Lesson from Katrina

In what many would consider a major event not only in the history of New Orleans but also the history of the United States, hurricane Katrina affected the city almost permanently in 2005, reducing the city to its foundation. Additionally, the city did not get as much relief and assistance as it needed to, which resulted in its survivors suffering nearly insurmountable losses of all kinds. It was revealed that many of the people who lived in New Orleans did not prepare for Katrina, as they were likely in a state of panic.

One thing that mental health professionals specialize in is addressing feelings of panic and stress, as well as the development of the necessary leadership qualities that are necessary to prepare or a hurricane. While it is still a good idea to gather information from different sources about how to physically prepare for a hurricane (in terms of what to stock up on and what to install in your windows, among other things), a mental health professional can help you mentally prepare for a hurricane, which can result in a much less stressful approach to hurricane preparation.

The Dark Side of Entertainment

As mentioned previously, New Orleans is home to some of the most diverse entertainment venues in the entire United States. But that title comes with a price: and that price is violent crime. According to its Wikipedia page, New Orleans has a very dark history of violent crime that remains relevant to this day. As of last year, New Orleans currently has the highest rate of firearm violence.

This can affect mental health on two fronts. The first is a fear for safety. While fear can be very normal and, in this case,, understandable, it can still prevent somebody from doing things that they want to do with their lives. In this case, it can prevent somebody from enjoying what the city has to offer. Mental health professionals can assist in managing these very normal and understandable feelings of fear, this way they do not grow into feelings of paranoia.
