The Intersection of Mental Health and Real Estate: A Guide
The pandemic has brought a new set of challenges for many people, with job loss and financial stress being among the top concerns. This stress has taken a toll on mental health, with many people seeking help for their struggles. In this blog post, we'll explore the intersection of the mental health industry and the real estate industry, and how they are working together to support people in need.
During the pandemic, the demand for mental health services has increased significantly. Mental health agencies, such as Hope Family Support Services, have had to adapt to meet the growing need for their services, including offering more virtual outpatient therapy. But as the demand for mental health services has increased, so has the recognition that people can't do it alone. Many people have reached out for help, recognizing that they need assistance to manage the stress and anxiety brought on by the pandemic.
There are many community resources available to help people struggling with mental health and real estate issues. Social services can help with utility bills, while churches and charities can provide food and other resources. Hope Family Support Services have access to a book of resources that they can use to point people in the right direction, even if they don't know about the specific resource themselves.
Unfortunately, the funding for mental health and real estate support has been limited by government cuts. Afterschool programs, which were once widely available, have been cut, leaving many children with no place to go after school. This lack of support can have serious consequences, including increased risk of gang and drug involvement. Mental health agencies, including private agencies, can provide support in the home, but these children need more.
In this episode of the Marching 2 More podcast real estate professionals, Donavan McFadden & Roger Lee sit with mental health professionals to discuss the intersection of mental health and real estate as it is an important issue that has become increasingly relevant during the pandemic. Hope Family Support Services have had to adapt to meet the growing demand for their services, while community resources are available to help people in need. Despite the challenges posed by limited government funding, mental health agencies remain committed to providing the support and resources that people need to manage their mental health and real estate challenges.
