2 Things That Helped My Mental Health Journey

A branch of euclyptus

Mental Health journeys are not a one size fits all. I share my experiences and things that did and didn’t work for me to hopefully help someone else feel like they are not alone on their journey.

When I was going through my mental health journey, which included depression, and wanted to support myself I did a number of things that really helped me. Below are 2 things that I would like to share in this blog with you that helped me, and may help you:

  1. Speak to someone you trust so you can share the weight of your pain, whether that be a Therapist or friend. The friend can help you on your journey in seeing a therapist to support you. A friend can help you and support you, but remember not to make your friend your therapist. They are two different roles and people.

  2. I wrote a list of the things that felt like self care for me that I could look at and pick from when I was feeling low. I shared this list with two people close to me so they could help me when I was feeling down. This helped me through the journey.

I am now a qualified Mental Health First Aider (MHFA) and believe deeply in helping people.
