Benefits & Risks: Although there are many potential benefits to mental health treatment (e.g., better relationships, improved self-esteem, reduction of specific symptoms), it can also be difficult at times. Part of the work during treatment is to talk about things that are difficult to discuss and may bring up unpleasant feelings. It is important for your minor child or dependent adult to let his or her clinician know when he or she is experiencing these feelings so that the clinician can be helpful. Sometimes a client may stop coming to treatment when it gets hard because they don’t realize that discomfort is a natural part of the process. The more consistently the client comes to treatment, the more value he or she will get from it.
