OK High Point seeks to normalize, educate, and create awareness about mental health resources available to Greater High Point residents to support their overall health and well-being.
In recent research conducted by The Foundation for a Healthy High Point, over a quarter of High Point residents who participated indicated increased levels of depression and anxiety. Whether due to trauma, a crisis, stress, COVID-19, substance use, unhealthy relationships, or other factors impacting people’s lives, most people will need mental health support at some time in their lives.

Signs of mental health challenges can show up differently. How we think, feel, and behave can connect directly to our mental wellness.
If we know the signs, whether we see them in ourselves or in others we care about, we can take steps to find support, tools, and paths to wellness and resilience. Below are some common mental health concerns:
Addiction and Substance Abuse
Be a Gate Opener, not a Gatekeeper
Stigma around mental health can deter someone from seeking support. Be the person who opens those doors instead of closing them.
If you are in a position of influence, normalize mental health for those around you.
If you feel comfortable, share your mental health story or mental wellness resources.
Don’t reinforce stigmas in the way you talk, respond, or act.
If you see someone struggling, let them know about OK High Point or use one of these conversation starters.
Mental wellness and accessing the right care for you is a complex and often intimidating process. But access to care is more abundant than ever, and we at Mental Health Associates of the Triad are dedicated to helping you find the mental health solutions you need.
