NEW YORK, Sept. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Manhattan Mental Health Counseling, a psychotherapy private practice

in NYC that accepts insurance, today spoke about the risks of suicide and depression in the modern day United States.

Numerous reports and studies have shown that instances of major depression are on the rise amongst virtually every demographic. Middle-aged men and women, college students and young adults from otherwise stable families suffer from depression more frequently than in the past. A particularly large spike occurred amongst millennials, with nearly 10% of Americans aged 18 to 25 admitting to experiencing major depression in the last year.

There are multiple factors contributing to this downturn in mental health. The advent of social media, smartphones, and dating sites have led to young men and women feeling commodified and left out. Other studies have found loneliness to have reached "epidemic levels," while financial security and the economic recession are both said to play a major role.

"Humans have always struggled with depression to some extent," said Natalie Buchwald, Founder at Manhattan Mental Health Counseling. "But it's only recently that it's begun to receive widespread media attention. And while the sharp upturn in major depressive episodes and suicides is extremely concerning, the fact that we are talking about it is incredibly important."

Buchwald created Manhattan Mental Health Counseling to provide a highly-personalized approach to therapy, with each session tailored to a patient's individual needs and income. Counselors at the organization work with adult patients of all ages and demographics. This flexibility and affordability is extremely important, explained Buchwald.

"Everyone, no matter how stable they are, can benefit from sitting down with a therapist," Natalie Buchwald continued. "Our lives can be confusing and overwhelming. We're constantly overloaded with information, constantly under stress from work, family, and finances. A therapist can help make sense of all that, and allow patients to live with greater clarity and serenity."

Buchwald is committed to her part in helping New Yorkers achieve better overall mental health, and emphasized that her practice accepts many of the health insurances popular in the New York metropolitan area.

Manhattan Mental Health Counseling is a full-service psychotherapy private practice based in New York. We provide specialized care at an affordable price by accepting many of the insurances which are popular in New York.

In a comfortable and serene atmosphere, our psychotherapists provide a highly personalized approach tailored to your individual needs. We are committed to helping you find the right therapist at an affordable rate.
