What's On Your Mind?

There is a lingering depression that plagues the mind yet somehow it can be hidden from the people closest to you. Of course there are times, when someone will pick up on a difference or a shift in your mood or your behavior and when asked they may become defensive or plainly deny it. Unfortunately, there is still a stigma attached to mental illness. No one wants to be singled out with a label that automatically prompts negative thoughts/beliefs - crazy, weak, sick, unworthy, losers, etc. Are you in a funk that you just cannot seem to shake? Are you having thoughts of ending your life because no one cares or you hate your life? Are you consumed with thoughts of not having everything you need? Lost a job? Had a bad break up? Cannot seem to find love? Addicted to drugs? Wish things would get better? Stuck in a place of mourning the loss of a loved one? and on and on...

Mental health affects your overall health. Denny Nelson and Alicia Raimundo explores the importance of seeking the appropriate care for your overall mental health. Keep in mind, your health and wellness depends on you.
