Roseann Bennett Meeting Mental Health Where It Lives

Mental Health is one of the largest stigmas to plague culture in the United States. It has been highlighted not only in the psychiatric world but is now becoming known as the cause of many physical ailments that are common in our society. Roseann Bennett has been influential in bringing assessment and treatment to those that might not be seeking assistance.

 

For any person struggling to cope with the hardships of life, seeking someone to talk to is the best way to manage the difficulties they are experiencing. When mental health has reached a pinnacle where functioning has been hindered, it is time to seek help. Most don’t know that simply reaching out to a friend, family member, or trusted community member to talk about the difficulties, can be the most beneficial. From within the family to local communities, to the workplace, there is no wrong place to address mental health. Roseann Bennett has created a practice in her community of Hackettstown, NJ, where all are welcome to obtain professional help.

 

Co-founder and Executive Director of the Center for Assessment and Treatment, Roseann is a licensed marriage and family therapist, focusing on treatment planning, case management, and crisis management. Her belief that everyone should be given access to professional help inspired her to focus her client base on those with low income, and those disenfranchised and marginalized in society. There is a lack of care for this demographic, and Roseann Bennett and her husband; Todd Bennett, built their nonprofit to support this concept.

 

Mental Health is an important part of an overall healthy lifestyle. For Mental Health Month in May 2018, Roseann imparted some practical wisdom in dealing with your own mental balance. There are many things in life that we cannot control. Recognizing in a scenario when you are not in control can be very important and helpful. If there is something to be done, then addressing it can be the fastest way to resolution. Sometimes bad things happen, and there isn’t a reason. Being able to identify these scenarios can be extremely helpful in moving past the mental strain. Click Here to learn more.

 

The Center for Assessment and Treatment is a charitable organization, open six day a week from 9am to 8pm.
