What does good mental health look like to you?
"Good mental health" means accepting that we can't possibly do it all. It means being compassionate with ourselves when we are struggling and reminding ourselves that it's okay to lean on our supports.
What do you do to take care of your own mental health?
Taking care of our mental health means something different for everyone. For me it means doing something creative everyday, scheduling alone time, and journaling when I feel overwhelmed.
What is a motto or idea that gives you reassurance when you’re having a difficult time?
When I'm having a difficult time I remind myself that "every emotion serves a purpose".
