While much of the stigma formerly attached to mental health issues such as depression and anxiety has been erased, there are still a number of conditions which will make those affected hesitate before seeking help. Few people will want drug addiction or a history of sexual abuse to become public knowledge, and a therapist’s assurance of professional confidentiality might seem purely theoretical in such a situation. When you go to see a therapist at their office or in a medical building, it is pretty obvious that you are there for mental health care so if you are trying to hide it, that is not the way. Even though hiding the fact that you may need to talk to a therapist is not really necessary, some people just are not comfortable letting others know their business when it comes to that kind of thing.
