World Mental Health Day

October 10th is World Mental Health Day.
I go to therapy. Do you? Have you considered it? Have you shrugged it off? Have you started and stopped?
Going to therapy doesn't mean you're crazy. It doesn't mean you're weak; in fact, it's just the opposite. Seeking therapy shows that you are strong enough to seek what you need to improve your health. If we don't take care of our mental health, then our physical health can suffer.
Wouldn't it be great to remove the stigma around seeking therapy? Telling someone you see a therapist should be as normal as saying you are going to see your doctor for any physical issue.
If you feel you could benefit from an objective person to talk to, talk to your doctor. Call your insurance company. Do an internet search for local resources in your area. If you don't click with the therapist you choose, change. There's no shame, you're not insulting anyone, you are taking care of you.
Show support to someone who tells you that they are in therapy. Be a good listener. Mental health issues thrive in silence.Let's talk about it.
Wishing you all good mental health!
