Your mental health will determine your happiness because mental health affects how you think, feel and act! We all have stress in our lives to include relationship issues, family issues or issues at work. Mental health is just how you process life and sometimes you may feel overwhelmed and need the help of a licensed therapist.
MENTAL HEALTH IS JUST HOW YOU PROCESS LIFE!
Your mental health impacts your ability to function, to form relationships and to do the things that you love to do.
Now you may ask yourself: “Do I need to seek out help? Is there something wrong with me? How do I determine if I need of help?”
The fact is that we all need mental help! There are no exclusionary criteria to being affected by mental illness, there’s no “Hey, I live in a big house I’m not affected, I have a master’s degree I’m not affected”. Additionally, there’s no way to tell from looking at someone if they need mental help.
If you have experienced a traumatic event that continues to affect how you feel, think or act; you need a therapist! Therapists can’t change what happened to you but they can help you to change how the traumatic event affects your life. They will help you to unpack the baggage that you have been carrying around for so many years to help you to find balance again. We need balance in our minds, body and spirit.
