May is Mental Health Awareness Month

May in Mental Health Awareness Month. In my overwhelming interest in sharing budgeting tips and tricks with you, I’ve gotten away from another passion of mine: mental health.
I work in mental health full-time, working with people who are diagnosed with serious mental illness. I’ve learned so much in my short career thus far, and I want so badly to share what I have learned with everyone!

One key fact I have learned is so many people don’t understand many of the common mental health diagnoses, like depression and anxiety.
During this month, I will be introducing a mental health element to my blog. Some things you can expect are:

  • My experience working with people with serious mental illness
  • Insights of a therapist
  • Common struggles of mental illness
  • Basic facts about common diagnoses
  • How to be helpful to yourself and others
  • Resources
  • Education about self-care

I’m really excited about introducing this new element to my blog!
What do you think about this?
