April 2024: National Counseling Awareness Month

Counseling, in its many forms and settings, is a psychological specialty that has provided life-enhancing and life-saving help for millions of people across North America and the world. No matter the motive for seeking help - whether it's mere curiosity, mandated treatment, or severe challenges that limit functioning/negatively impact quality of life, or anything in between - psychological counseling is an invaluable, research-based engine for growth and wellbeing. 

BAC MAP welcomes National Counseling Awareness Month and recognizes the many ways in which BAC members and their families have been and will continue to be helped through counseling services. BAC MAP also aims to overcome stigma related to help-seeking behaviors (such as counseling), through recognition of these pathways as ones of strength and success, rather than weakness or failure. 

If you or a loved one may be seeking counseling or want to learn more, please contact BAC MAP at 1-833-MAP-TALK for confidential help. 

If you or someone you know is experiencing a life-threatening emergency, please call 911. You may also obtain immediate 24/7 help from the Suicide and Crisis Lifeline by calling 988
