May is mental health awareness month. Our mental health affects our thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. It also helps us handle various stresses that occur throughout life. Those with mental health conditions may experience anxiety, depression, emotional outbursts, weight, sleep or appetite changes, withdrawal, and mood changes, among others.
Common mental health conditions include the following:
Getting Professional Help
Mental health and mental illness often affect more people than we realize, and many individuals do not feel as though they have the tools to help themselves or their loved ones. Some conditions can even be incredibly debilitating. Additionally, those suffering from mental health issues may not know when it’s “bad enough” to get help.
If you or a loved one need counseling for mental health, MySpectrum has a multitude of options, including individual therapy, family therapy, and teletherapy. MySpectrum supports mental health awareness month. We understand that mental health is a journey that takes patience and strength, and we are here to support you through the process.
Mental illness awareness extends beyond the month of May. It’s important to seek professional help for any mental health issues you may be experiencing, even if you don’t think it’s that serious. Seeking professional help is brave; It can empower you and prevent the mental health condition from taking over your life. It can also enhance your self-awareness, confidence, and work/school performance. In some cases, it can even be lifesaving.
