Mental health wellness is incredibly important. It impacts every part of our lives, just like our physical health, but is often overlooked. That’s why mental health education is essential.
We all recognize the negative effects of not properly caring for our physical health. It can affect our career, hobbies and relationships. Mental health is the same way, yet people often do not seek treatment when experiencing the symptoms of a mental illness. This can be because of the stigma surrounding mental health, difficulties finding treatment or more.
Remember, 1 in 5 American adults have experienced a mental illness. It is more common than you may think and if you think you may be experiencing symptoms of mental illness, seeking treatment is always encouraged. Even if you are not experiencing a severe mental illness, things like support groups and therapy can work as preventative measures and ease any symptoms you may be feeling.
Finding that perfect balance between building your career and taking care of personal relationships is difficult. However, there are ways to make it work. Stress and time management strategies can help reduce feelings and causes of stress, while still allowing you to manage your responsibilities.
When responsibilities pile up, we can sometimes forget that one of our biggest responsibilities is to our own mental health. Not only does making our mental health a priority improve our own quality of life, it can also affect the way we treat those around us.
