Where to get help for your Mental Health

Getting help for our mental health is not always on the agenda list in our endless list of To Dos, but it’s incredibly important especially if you’re suffering in silence.

What is Mental Health?

Is the first word that comes up in your mind when I say Mental Health, “CRAZY?”

That’s because we’ve been conditioned by society to think of mental health issues as an illness that cannot be cured and makes you someone who is Crazy.

And crazy is defined as someone who is either overly enthusiastic or aggressive.

What about those of us in between?

Mental Health is a term that covers the spectrum of anything and everything from Anxiety, Anger, Bipolar, Depression, Seasonal Affective Disorder and more.

How Do I Know I Need Help With My Mental Health?

It can be hard to ask for help especially if you’re not sure if you need help with your mental health.

Has your behaviour changed recently?

Are you more angry, upset, anxious or manic?

These can all be signs and symptoms you need help to manage your mental health.

Sometimes, you just know and you don’t know where to go for help.

Anxiety and Depression are the most common Mental Health issues, but things like Anger, Sleep issues, OCD can also be something that you need help with.

Where Do I Get Help?

The first step is admitting you need help, and then trying to figure out how to find it.

Most people turn to family and friends for help, but they may not always be the best people to help you manage your mental health.

Your GP should be the first person you turn to.

If you don’t feel comfortable doing that then MIND has an amazing helpline you can contact to give you advice and organise help for you to get counselling, attend a course or find the nearest office to get non-judgmental advice to help you.

What Can I Do To Manage My Mental Health?

Even after seeking help, it can be so overwhelming to manage your mental health on a day to day basis, but a few things that help me are:

  • Talking to a non-judgemental friend
  • Taking a walk
  • Doing something you love e.g. knitting, drawing, writing, painting
  • Meditating
  • Prayer
  • Binge watching Netflix

These things won’t help you to fix the main issues of your mental health, but they can provide a welcome distraction for a while.

Just be sure to get help when you need it.
