With mental health symptomology at record highs in certain demographics, it's clear that not enough people are getting the help they need.

And though many people know the potential benefits of therapy, they might still feel hesitant to actually seek it out. Or others may be on the cusp of making the call, but something keeps holding them back.

Today we talk about five very common barriers to seeking therapy, and how to overcome them. If you've ever been on the fence about it, and you think it can help but you have some concerns, today's episode is for you.
