Your mental health impacts every aspect your life. Mental health problems can effect our emotional, psychological, and physical well being.
When it comes to your mental health, self-care can help manage stress, increase your energy, and lower your risk of illness. Even small acts of self-care everyday can have a huge impact.
Why bring awareness to mental health?
Raising awareness to mental health problems can help you understand symptoms, get professional treatment if needed (without the stigma behind asking for help), and to get rid of the misconceptions behind mental health so people don’t suffer in silence!
Take the first step in raising awareness by doing the following:
Start a Conversation
It can feel weird reaching out to someone who may need help. But friends and family members may not feel comfortable asking for help. Therefore, one way to start a conversation is to simply ask your loved ones how they are doing.
Some ways to start a conversation like this include asking questions such as:
• How are you?
• Are you ok?
• Do you need to talk?
• What can I do to be there for you?
• Is there anything that you need from me?
• I want to know how you’re feeling because I care about you.
Prioritize Your Mental Health
Mental Health Awareness Month is a great time to reflect on your own mental well-being. To get an idea of where you might stand, just check in with yourself with the questions above.
If you’re not doing ok, reach out for help. Finding the right therapist can take some time. Don’t wait to get on the road to mental wellness. Seek support as soon as possible.
One thing to remember during this month, you are not alone and there is always someone who can help, even if you have to help yourself!
