    Your Primary Care Doctor

    Unless you’re dealing with a severe mental health condition, a good place to start is your primary care doctor. He or she can review your medical records, talk with you about any symptoms or concerns, and create a treatment plan for your needs. Your doctor may connect you with other resources if needed, such as a therapist or mental health specialist.
