Mental Health

Mental health matters! Mental health is increasingly important in a busy and stressful world. Anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder are problems for hundreds of millions of people in the world. These can be crippling conditions and lead to major limitations in life or even violence or suicide if left untreated. While mental health problems are major medical concerns, many people in the world still doesn't think of them in that way. Maintaining and maximizing mental health should be a top priority for everyone, as well as showing empathy for those struggling.

Luckily times are starting to change, and there are more avenues for getting help than ever before. Many people find that combination of counseling, therapy, medication, exercise, and healthy eating can make a major difference. Getting outdoors more often, using light therapy, practicing self-care, making daily affirmations, journaling, meditating, practicing gratitude, doing yoga, and even being a pet owner can all potentially help as well. Many techniques can be beneficial as long as they can help your mental health without damaging your physical health in the process.

While you should speak with your doctor and therapist (if you don't have one already) first, I'd encourage you to keep an open mind. Everyone is different, but usually a comprehensive personalized approach works better than a singular generic approach relying on only one treatment method when dealing with mental health conditions. 

There are more online treatment options and in-person group therapy sessions than in previous years, so this can be a starting point. 

Cannabis and CBD products are mostly legalized now as well which may help some people depending on their situations. Other substance options that used to be taboo like ketamine, kratom, and psilocybin are also being explored in greater detail as alternatives to dangerous opioids, benzos, and ECT. 

With the right treatments, you truly can put mind over matter. Your mind matters!

In addition to these major topics, in the near future I'll also be including articles, blog posts, and resources on Alzheimer's, dementia, OCD, ADD, ADHD, PTSD, insomnia, and autism.
