Q&A

What does good mental health look like to you?
Self-care is at the epicentre of good mental health. Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you. Good mental health involves practicing gratitude, realistic-thinking, and mindfulness. It involves enjoying time spent by yourself and time spent with family & friends.
What do you do to take care of your own mental health?
I believe in the value of incorporating playfulness into my life, finding joy in every day occurrences and showing appreciation to the people that matter most. It is important to do something every day, no matter how small, that puts a smile on my face.
What would you say to a friend struggling with a mental health issue?
One of the most important things you can realize is that you're not alone. You're not the first to go through it and you're not gonna be the last to go through it. You may not believe it right now but it WILL get better and I am here to help you get there. In any given moment we have two options; to step forward into growth or to step backward into safety.
