My first adventure to Costa Rica was with Under 30 Experiences ( U30X) which was unforgettable and a feeling that is almost indescribably. Because I decided to travel with U30X all the planning was done for me, I meet new people, and I was able to awaken emotions/feelings that I have been sleeping on.

Seeking help from a Mental Health Professional is important because he or she will give you sound advice and unbiased counseling.
Don’t get me wrong, speaking with family and friends can be beneficial when you need a support system, but I have found professional help makes it easier to be open about emotions and addressing things that have taken place.
Some people will attempt to hide and ignore symptoms that point to mental health issues: he or she may be ashamed or don’t know how to handle it. According to Better Health Television, talking to your doctor or mental health professional about emotional difficulties is a positive step toward improving your mental health. A professional can help you achieve a healthier lifestyle.
