Mental Health

According to a 2018 status report from Missouri Department of Mental Health, an estimated 828,00 adults in Missouri experienced and/or struggled with mental illness in the past year.  This number included 127,000 young adults and 702,000 adults over the age of 25.

In an online nationwide report from Mental Health America in 2018, it states that a little over 18% of adults in America struggle with mental health problems annually and almost 12% of youth have suffered a major depressive episode in the past year.  34-53% of people with severe mental illness reported childhood physical and/or sexual abuse.

These stats are tackled by a mental health professional, meeting clients where they and providing empathy, understanding, and therapeutic services to help them work through any baggage from their past that may hinder their ability to become the person they want to be.

Office based individual therapy is offered as well as telemental health services for those who do not wish or are not ready to be seen in an office setting.  Potential clients are assessed for appropriateness of office based and/or telemental health services by clinician before any appointments are made.  Potential clients can call or email T.A.V.E.R.N. Health and Wellness, LLC for a consultation.  Established clients will have the option to submit appointment requests to their clinician’s calendar via a HIPAA compliant website, secure email, or by phone.
