It’s no secret that divorce can heavily impact your mental health. That’s why we reached out to Janie Lacy, LMHC, NCC, CSAT to chat with her about divorce and what you can do no matter what stage of divorce you are in currently.

Key Takeaways

Don’t be ashamed to reach out for a mental health check before, during, and after.

Situational depression is normal but work with a mental health counselor while you adjust to this life change.

A grief process is normal.

During this process, you may experience “survival mode”. After everything is finalized, you may start to feel more overwhelmed and more emotions can flood your mind. Reach out to a counselor asap.

If you know you’re about to go through this life change, be proactive, and seek mental health counseling to find a positive support system.

Don’t be nervous about interviewing other counselors. The first counselor may not be the one that fits and it’s ok to try another.
