Q&A

What does good mental health look like to you?
Good mental health to me looks like being excited for each day and what it may bring. Understanding emotions, processing them in a healthy way and moving forward so that each day is better than the last. Looking in the mirror and being proud, happy and confident at who is looking back.
What do you do to take care of your own mental health?
I do a number of different things to take care of my mental health. Sometimes it looks like going on a long walk in nature with my dogs, other times it looks like cooking a comforting meal. Doing a multitude of things that I enjoy is how I make sure I stay grounded and happy in order to be my best self!
What would you say to a friend struggling with a mental health issue?
The first step is recognizing that you are struggling with your mental health, and that can often be the hardest part. The next step is realizing how much support is available and the potential within yourself to get you where you want to be.
