When you experience a traumatic or extremely distressful situation, your life can quickly fall apart without proper care and attention for your mental health. You become consumed by what only can be described as an avalanche of emotions, feelings, and thoughts flooding your mind, and body.
Struggling to cope with everything, feeling overwhelmed, somewhat down and a little ashamed of how your life has deteriorated can suddenly shift from, what is a mental health concern, to a mental illness such as depression, anxiety disorder, substance disorder or even feelings suggesting that your life is not worth living.
The Mental Health Foundation is here for you. We provide a vast wealth of information and resources across a wide range of mental health conditions and disorders. Our goal is to educate and help you understand what’s going on inside your head. Our online interactive forums, provide a mental health community, free of discrimination and judgment. It’s a place where you can seek further advice, share your story, receive and give support to other people going through similar experiences and mental health disorders. You are never alone.
Through our blog we aim to challenge and shift attitudes towards mental health. We feature stories from our mental health community and articles from our partners at the C.D.C., N.I.H. and The World Health Organization. Our team of mental health professionals and contributing authors share their expertise, knowledge and insights on treatments, prevention, dealing with stigma, along with their own struggles and successes of living with a mental health challenge. Together we can change the way the world thinks and feels about mental health. Join us and help us change the conversation. #BreakTheStigma #KeepTalkingMH
