Mental health is an integral part of health and is more than the absence of mental illnesses. Being mentally healthy isn’t a lack of worry and stress, it's being able to handle these challenges better.
Approximately, 150 million people in India are in need of active interventions for mental health issues while less than 30 million seek care. 80% of those living with mental health issues remain without support due to lack of access despite being unwell for > 12 months.
Even with all the progress we've made till now, there's still a lot of stigma attached to mental health. This needs to change for our collective well-being. So, come, let's join hands to bridge the care gap! #firstname.lastname@example.org
САМЫЙ ОТКРОВЕННЫЙ ПОСТ.
А вообще, я понятия не имею как лучше всего вести инстаграм. Какие фотки лучше грузить и как оформлять посты? 😂
Краду запись со своего телеграм канала:
"Этот пост не легко писать, но я очень хочу поделиться чем-то сокровенным, чтобы каждый, кто прочитает этот пост, почувствуют мою поддержку ❤️ Я всегда была очень ранимым человеком. Мало кто знал это, но в душе я поистине нежный цветок. Не сказать, что я годами храню обиду на людей. Отнюдь нет. Но стоит помнить, что ничто не исчезает просто так. Чувства меняют форму. Вот и все.
Так получилось, что обида в моем случае переросла в ненависть, направленную на себя. Я боюсь, что не смогу здесь описать всю эту комплексную проблему, потому что она довольна масштабна. Особенно если брать во внимание всю многогранность человеческих чувств.
Так вот. 10 дней тому назад я своими ногами пошла в больницу - в центр психического здоровья. В народе, конечно, она именуется проще - дурдом. Не буду скрывать, что давно прибегаю к помощи специалистов. Но в один момент мне уже стало сложно нести на себе весь груз прошлого.
Изначально мне было стыдно признаваться где я. Сейчас поразмыслив, проанализировав, посмотрев на ситуацию со стороны... А чего мне стыдиться? Почему о ментальных заболеваниях в нашей стране всегда умалчивают? На самом деле, они губят нас больше чем другие болезни, которые как раз таки с ментальных и истекают.
К тому же, своё будущее я точно решила связать с любимой психологией. Так кому как не мне говорить об этом?
Поистине только признав ситуацию, вы берёте власть над ней!
Ребята, никогда не думайте, что вы одни. Не молчите! Пишите, говорите, кричите, но никогда НЕ ХРАНИТЕ В СЕБЕ СВОИ ЭМОЦИИ. Обращайтесь к специалистам. Мне, если на то пошло.
Вы - начало всего. Любите себя и будьте в ГАРМОНИИ с собой.
Не было бы счастья, да несчастье помогло ☺️❤️"
This week was supposed to be a getaway to celebrate our first year of marriage, but plans change! Life doesn’t stop! And we have an almost complete house!
Matt and I took a few days off this last week that were meant for a vacation, but interesting enough the timing of when we bought our house worked out perfect with when we planned our vacation, so we were fortunate enough to take that time to tackle some of the renovations we wanted to get down before moving in.
Since closing on August 6th, we’ve...
* Made at least 40 trips to the house from our apartment * Painted 900 sq. feet with fresh paint
* Demolished a weird wooden divider by the door
* Took down and re-hung a 100 lb. cabinet
* Ripped up all the carpet on the first floor
* Removed close to 300 staples and 40 tack strips
I’m pooped! BUT grateful. Our families have been with us every step of the way. We couldn’t have done any of this without them. Legitimately, the last time I was this tired was this time last year, when we were on our honeymoon in recovery mode from planning a wedding! We’re in the home stretch. Too bad they don’t have accountability groups for moving into a house? Or maybe that’s what our landlord is for 😂 Thursday is what we’re shooting for! Someone hold us to it (we don’t have a choice)!
Motivate Monday : What alot of people dont realise is mental health plays a HUGE part of fitness. Sound crazy? Fact: If you truly believe you cant do something your body will reciprocate and not do it. You can have all the strength in the world but if you dont believe you wint receive. I have come across multiple people in need of reassurance this week that they are capable myself included. Anyone is truly capable of anything, there may be different routes to the end destination in comparison to someone else but NOTHING is impossible. I HUGELY push this to my clients that in order to grow physically you have to grow mentally also. Ft lunch powerlift training workout. 🔥 #mindset#strength#mentalhealthawareness#positive#celebrate
Today I taught during the second hour of church, and during one part of my lesson, we addressed *depression*. There was an interesting perspective from a woman who’s mother suffered from severe depression her entire life. She said “I never saw my mom try to leave the house. I never saw her go exercise or try and take care of herself in anyway. She never left the house.” And I’m not judging the severity of this woman’s depression whatsoever, she may have been really trying, only she can judge that. But this perspective from a woman who experienced first-hand as a child having a parent with a severe mental illness, put a real spin on things for me, it made me think about things in a way that I’ve never considered. I constantly find myself suffering through “mom guilt”, “am I hurting my kids by being depressed?” While a depressed mom is better than no mom at all, I want them to know MORE THAN ANYTHING that I did try. That I am giving my all everyday, even if my all is just doing the bare necessities that day. I want them to know that I didn’t give up. That my love is unconditional and I would walk through fire for them. Yesterday my son grabbed my hand and said “mommy you’re the most special mommy.” I never want to taint the way he sees me & that’s why I smile through the tears on the bad days, play tag when it hurts to even lift a finger, and give kisses and hugs even when I feel like my heart is broken. #depression#bipolartypetwo#mentalhealthawareness#mentalhealthwarrior

Hey Instagram! 👋🏼 After a few months of letting life get in the way, I’ve finally found my way back into my love for food blogging and want to continue to learn and grow in all aspects of my health. Long, sappy story short, I’ve been dealing with a lot of mental barriers that has caused my creative outlets to take a back seat. As sensitive as a topic mental health is, I’m starting to realise how common it really is, especially amongst young people on social media. Alongside my love for food, cooking and general health and fitness things, I’m itching to learn more and share my story with mental health. Social media is undeniably the best way to create content and share your story and I can’t wait to get back onto this journey. I’ve been following along with some amazing content creators and healthy bloggers over the years and feel its time I share what’s close to my heart ❤️
someday you will look at your life and say “everything i’ve been through, all the hurt and hopelessness, as dark as it got, it was all worth it”. you will find yourself with a headache not from crying but from laughing. you will find yourself contacting friends and getting out of the house simply because you want to. you will notice that there is a warm and glowing light inside of you that makes you feel as if you are made of sunshine. life will be good. you will be happy.
but you have to get yourself there. you have to keep fighting even when it feels like you have no more to give. you can’t let bad days completely ruin your progress. you have to get support whether it be a trusted friend, a parent, a religious leader, a teacher, a counselor, etc. i know it’s scary to ask for help and admit you’re struggling, but a support group will help you in ways you never could’ve imagined. you also have to be gentle with yourself. you are tender. you are healing.
and there will still be bumps in the road. but you will learn to honor these bumps and recognize that they will pass and you will learn from them. you will know that without them, you would not have the joy you otherwise possess. you will be proud of yourself for having come so far and having survived the most brutal of attacks. you will see that you are the master of your spirit; you determine whether you accept or deny the journey that the creator (or whatever higher power you believe in) offers you.
keep fighting. keep healing. keep trying. i promise that no matter how badly you hurt right now, there is a brighter future. there is a beautiful life waiting for you. but only if you’re willing to do what it takes to find it. i too have felt the suffocating darkness at multiple times in my life. i too repeated time and time again to myself that life would never get better and i was destined to be stuck in an endless state of unhappiness and anger and emptiness. i know what it feels like. but i also know what it feels like to have all that lifted, gradually. there is hope. there is sunshine behind the clouds. and it’s waiting anxiously for you to find it.
Had to learn this the hard way. Not all problems and situations shared with me, is shared for me to fix.
She is a fighter, she is a survivor, and she is a warrior. Little did the entire world know that today marked the day she knew she deserves so much more. Her light was dimmed but never vanquished. Pray for the one that knows her worth because she won't settle for passbyes. She knows that she is a destination not a stop along the way.
To my All my Warriors💜 👇 Spent almost a decade searching for a solution to my illness.
Fibromyalgia is painful and when you add other illnesses to the list...well, It’s pretty much a rollercoaster of mixed feelings and pain for 24 hrs, no breaks! 😣
From days where you can’t get out of bed due to the pain but also fighting with your mental health, this illness is not a joke! (Not because we don’t not look sick does not mean we are not in pain). 😵
Do you see how STRONG you are!? Every day we challenge ourselves, we search for that STRENGTH to keep going with our days because this illness truly takes ALL the energy from us.
YOU ARE A TRUE WARRIOR! 🌻
DONT BE TOO HARD ON YOURSELF. If today is not a good day, get comfy and rest up. 😴
You got this!! 😘👏 Celebrate! Be grateful even on your bad days, those days makes us stronger!! I am sending you love and good vibes!! 💜
Looking back on some of the writing opportunities I’m grateful to have been a part of that have helped me find my own passion and voice on this journey. This is definitely one of my most favored articles over at @huffpost 🙌🏽
Just listening can provide a volume of healing that the most profound advice can’t equate to. Genuine listening says, I hear you. I’m with you. I may not completely know what you’re going through but I want to understand you.
Non-judgmentally means having compassion from one human being to another human being. It’s not self-righteous and doesn’t make an assumed judgment on a person’s character or faith just because they have hit a low point in their life. No one is immune from the human experience. It doesn’t say, you need help. It says we’re in this together and I want to be a part of your recovery.
What have you found to be most helpful when encountering a friend or loved one struggling with depression? What has helped you? *You can also find this article on my blog at the link in my bio*

I forgot my password face.
Two years off social media has been absolutely amazing but I am also ready to get back into it and meet some new folks, collaborate and create with y’all to make positive impacts.
Hey guys, IM BACK! I took a much needed break from Instagram. I stopped posting on Instagram because I began to feel ugly, inside and out. Too many of us (myself included) put way too much stock in our social media accounts. Studies have shown Instagram has lowered the self esteem of many users (specifically young women) and had even contributed to anxiety and depression. Instagram started out as a platform aiming to allow users to express themselves through photos and create an identity for themselves yet as of today Instagram has created a generation of users with extremely low self esteem, feelings of inadequacy, and extreme body dysmorphia. I found myself constantly comparing my self to other women on the internet living lavish lifestyles I’ll be lucky to ever afford, comparing my body to perfectly FaceTuned Instagram models (who happen to have the best surgeons in the country to boot), and this turned into a black hole of self loathing. I constantly felt like I wasn’t pretty enough, my body wasn’t good enough, I didn’t make enough money, my car wasn’t nice enough, my house wasn’t big enough and so on and so on. I decided to take a break from posting on Instagram specifically and it has drastically changed my outlook on life. I have made a promise to myself that I will no longer put stock in how many strangers on the internet follow me or how many likes I get on a photo. Post to express yourself, post because you feel good about yourself, post to be creative 💓 thanks for joining my ted talk.
You are not alone!! We all have struggles we are fighting in silent. But being silent isn’t helping anyone understand the demons we fight. .
You matter. Your story matters. Help end the stigma and share. #bpdturnup
