A resident problem that is particularly important and can be easily overlooked is mental health. One resident named Maria at Lawrence Village, located in South Point, OH, was experiencing anxiety and nervousness. As a result, she was uncomfortable being around people, which was making her unhappy and hindering her relationships. Thankfully, the Service Coordinator at Lawrence Village, Vicki, helped Maria overcome these challenges.
Vicki provided Maria with information on anxiety disorders and discussed counseling opportunities with her. Vicki also helped Maria create a plan to manage her anxiety. This plan includes going outside regularly, riding in the car with a family member, and taking daily walks. Maria’s property manager has also been made aware of Maria’s anxiety problems and accommodates her as much as possible.
Maria’s life has improved greatly because of the services that Vicki provided. Maria attests that going outside to sit on a porch or walk in the yard helps her anxiety by making her feel more stable.
Mental health is vital to overall well-being. If you know of a tenant struggling with mental wellness, contact their property’s service coordinator so they can provide access to mental health resources.
