This course is an excellent overview of the considerations that Mental Health Professionals should keep in mind before writing an ESA letter.

It is common to see people walking around with their pets in today's society. The high chances are that the pets might be emotional support animals. People who love pets can attest to the benefits of emotional support animals to their mental health (HoyGerlach, 2019).


An emotional support animal is an animal companion that helps and benefits individuals, especially those with disabilities and those who love pets. The animal aims to give companionship and support while alleviating at least one part of the impairment.


 Emotional support animals most commonly come in the form of dogs, although cats are also famous. Other animals, such as miniature horses, can also be used as ESAs (Abdulkareem, 2021). This paper aims to address emotional support animals, their benefit, and prescription laws for emotional support animals. It will also address the ban on airlines from accommodating emotional support animals.
