“You need to see a therapist!” Has anyone ever uttered these words to you? Has it scared you? Well, it shouldn’t—because seeing a therapist really isn’t a big deal. 

According to renowned therapist Sainiya Bedi, every one of us needs therapy to vent out. And that doesn’t mean there is something wrong with you mentally. You can talk to a friend and that’ll also work as therapy.

But at times there can be actual emotional and mental turmoil that even your friends and family don’t understand. And sadly, it can push you towards bigger problems like depression and anxiety. And that’s where a therapist can come to your rescue.

That’s why today, we want you to spare two minutes of life and take this quiz. This quiz will help you decide whether you should seek therapy for your mental well-being or not. Because your mental health is in your hands, buddy.
