    I am 55 now, but in middle school and high school I suffered severe anxiety attacks, panic attacks, and depression in silence. I thought I was going crazy and that everyone else around me was “normal”.

    Back then the only after hours crisis help was the local emergency room and there were very few psychologist in the area, and certainly no psychiatrist.

    As I got older, I realized that many of my friends and students in the Carteret County schools were experiencing the same thing. Had I known that, and had I known that what I was experiencing wasn’t craziness, I think I would have done better.

    I am glad today that many younger kids and adults feel OK talking about mental health issues and I hope the county will do more to offer services.

    This needs to become a top priority in the county. With all the school shootings that are taking place and people getting in to crisis late at night, the failure of insurance companies and Medicaid system to pay attention to this issue is frustrating to say the least. Just like with medical care, mental health needs 24 hour coverage and care.

    I wonder if these agencies are seeing a surge in mental health crisis calls after Hurricane Florence with people getting depressed and overly anxious from homelessness and the overwhelming costs of putting things back together and dealing with FEMA. Look out for your neighbors and family folks, in a few months after everything dies down is when the internal sorrow will set in and people will be getting in to emotional crisis.
