If a client has not had professional counseling, or might show signs of a mental health disorder, a coach can help make referrals to Licensed Professionals that can diagnose or talk to the client about medications if needed.
A mental health coach helps a client find ways to cope and create meaningful connections and support as the client navigates through the mental health issues they are encountering.
A mental health coach can be a support of ongoing care and assist clients in making plans, obtaining goals and moving forward in their life and help restore the client to a new normal.
