Q&A

What does good mental health look like to you?
Good mental health to me looks like a number of things. It is the ability to learn and recognize boundaries. The ability to feel, awareness to express and capability to manage a both positive and negative emotions of feelings you are expressing. The skill to form and maintain good relationships with others and the awareness to disconnect and allow yourself to discard relationships that are not healthy, empowering or supportive to you in any way.
What do you do to take care of your own mental health?
Sleep hygiene and physical exercise are huge factors in taking care of my mental health.
What would you say to a friend struggling with a mental health issue?
You are worth overcoming your challenges whether that is to be completely clear of them or learn ways to positively cope and live with them. You deserve to look forward to a tomorrow.
