Mental Health Awareness…💚

What do you do when you someone you know has to deal with persistent fears and anxieties or even depression? Well the first thing you need to do is to get the person to seek the services of a professional and/or counselor who can lead them in the right direction and give them the help they need. In the meantime, here are some other things you can do to help the person cope.

Learn as much as you can in managing fears, anxieties and depression. There are many books and information that will educate on how to deal with fear and anxiety. Share this information with the person who is struggling. Education is the key in finding the answers your looking for in managing your fears.

Be understanding and patient with the person struggling with their fears. Dealing with depression and anxiety can be difficult for the person so don’t add more problems than what is already there.

As for the person dealing with the anxiety, he or she must realize that managing anxiety and fear takes practice. So when experiencing an anxiety related situation, begin to learn what works, what doesn’t work, and what you need to improve on in managing your fears and anxieties. As you do this, you will become better in dealing with your anxieties.

Don’t forget to Pray and ask God for help. A person can only do so much. Asking God for help can give us additional resources to help manage our fears and anxieties. It is not always easy, however God is in control and he will help you if you ask him.

Another thing to remember is that things change and events do not stay the same. For instance, you may feel overwhelmed in the mornings with your anxiety and feel that this is how you will feel the rest of the day. This isn’t correct. No one can predict the future with 100 Percent accuracy. Even if the thing that you feared does happen there are circumstances and factors that you can’t predict which can be used to your advantage. You never know when the help and answers you are looking for will come to you.

As a Layman, I realize it is not easy to deal with all of our fears. When your fears and anxieties have the best of you, seek help from a professional. The key is to be patient, take it slow, and not to give up. In time, you will be able to find those resources that will help you with your problems.

Quick Tips To Help Someone Who Suffers💚

#mentalhealthawarenessmonth💚

The belief is people who suffer from some type of mental illness is doing this to get attention, we can easily ‘snap out of it’ you say….🤔

Truth is most of us don’t really want to be bothered or we don’t want to bother you with the demons we are facing on a daily basis.

So instead of accusing, guessing, or gossiping about us, here are a few ways you can help me or someone you know that suffers:👇🏾

👉🏾Make a date with your friend, spouse, co-worker, or whoever you know that suffers. We hate leaving the house but make it worth our while, take them some place quiet or pack a light lunch and find a nice place in the park.

👉🏾Offer to do the dishes, clean up, or ask them if there’s any errands you can run for them. People who suffer sometimes let the little things like cleaning the house or washing clothes go.

👉🏾Offer to do their hair or take them to enjoy a spa day. This could give them a chance to feel good about themselves if for only one day. Sometimes our confidence is really low during this time.

👉🏾Sit and talk with us without passing judgment, sometimes all we need is a listening ear.

👉🏾Support them, offer to educate yourself about their illness. Offer to go to therapy or help them find resources in their area.

See it’s not that hard…we just need support and comfort during this time.
