Mental Health Awareness Month: Coping With Mental Health Issues
May 2022 is Mental Health Awareness Month. This is an important time to take a closer look at your mental health and how you are coping with mental health issues.
This can include things like Anxiety, Depression, PTSD, Autism and Chronic Stress.
If you have any kind of a mental health condition, you know that coping can be challenging. Finding help through therapy, and learning coping skills is crucial, as is building a support network.
Personally, I cope with mental health conditions on a daily basis, so I understand the struggle. Over the years I have gone to therapy, and learned a lot of coping skills that I can use for bad days. I also make sure to communicate with my partner extensively about how I am coping with things.
Since I have Anxiety, Depression and PTSD, I have written about all of those in the past. Here is a collection of Mental Health Articles that you may want to refer to during Mental Health Awareness Month, or any time that you are struggling or looking for resources.
