How to Get an Emotional Support Animal

If you believe an emotional support animal may help you with your anxiety, there are a few steps you must do to be eligible.

Consult a mental health professional first. You may get treatment by completing our free emotional exam, and a qualified specialist from Cerebral will contact you.

A letter from a licensed psychiatrist, nurse practitioner, therapist, social worker, or other mental health professional is required. They will confirm that you have a mental or emotional handicap. This ESA letter cannot be written by any other doctor who is not a psychiatrist or mental health professional.

This letter will frequently indicate that you have a mental health issue that is included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) and that an emotional support animal will aid in your therapy. In the letter, the mental health expert will most likely say how long they have been treating you and that they are familiar with your illness.

This letter should be printed on company letterhead. It should include the contact information for the mental health practitioner as well as the kind and number of their licensure. This letter, which will act as your formal "prescription" for an ESA, should be no more than a year old. You must carry this letter, as well as any other public site you want to visit with your emotional support, with you when you travel.

When obtaining an ESA, keep in mind that there are no precise laws governing them. However, some airlines have tight regulations against traveling with them. Some landlords may also have their own ESA policies. Individuals with mental health issues, on the other hand, can reside in the house with ESAs under the Fair Housing Act. They must provide their landlord with an ESA housing letter indicating their need for a comfort animal. This is why it is critical to obtain a genuine letter. It is the sole legal document that entitles an individual to an ESA.

ESAs provide nonjudgmental support and might bring comfort when needed. If you're thinking of acquiring an emotional support animal, consult with your mental health provider first.
