My mental illness is wasting my life.

Help Yourself

  • Thank you for reaching out with this.  Mental illness is such a difficult road to navigate and it’s often difficult to know where you can turn to get help.
  • If this is your first time getting help, you may want to reach out to people or sites that can give you information and support.
  • If you’re concerned about talking about your mental health with people currently in your life, you may want to consider talking to a therapist who is trained to help you work through these kinds of issues.

Consider This

  • Have you tried looking at any self-help resources?  There are books, sites and workbooks, eg- https://pesi.com/self-compassion/book that you could look into for ways to promote changing your way of thinking about yourself.
  • Do you get out of the house enough and go for walks.  Sunshine is proven to help when you’re feeling down or depressed.
  • One thing to remember is mental health is not something defines us. It is a moment in time that we need to work to work through, use resources, talk to those around us /professionals, and make sure that we are taking some steps to help ourselves. You got this!
