Why Look At Mental Health?

Mental health is such a wide ranging topic for this magazine. Mental health is a person’s condition with regards to their psychological, social and emotional well-being. Our mental health affects how we think, feel and act. It affects us in all stages of our life from childhood until the day we die. It determines how we handle our life in all areas. When we have balanced mental health we can function optimally. When we function optimally, our life is more peaceful, calm and we are well balanced. On the flip-side when we are not functioning optimally we are more stressed, anxious and frustrated.

I wanted to write this magazine as I see so many people in my life unbalanced mentally, whether it is stress, anxiety, depression, bi-polar, OCD or in my workplace, schizophrenic or multiple personality disorder. (To be honest I have been feeling this way recently too).

So why in the world are so many of us in this condition? What causes us to be imbalanced? What things do we need to look at to bring our life back into balance to restore our mental health? There are so many factors to this. We need to look at our genetics, biology, environment and psychological factors. We need to look at the foods we eat, toxins in our environment, toxins we put in our body, our friends, family, the places we hang out, our money situation. I could go on and on. All of these factors can affect our health and wellbeing.

When we are looking at healing our mental health, a pill is not always the answer. For some, with severe mental health issues, sure they need to be medicated and I believe that drugs have their place for some of the people, some of the time. Yet, why is everyone we speak to prescribed anti-depressants or anti-anxiety pills? If the reason we are stressed or anxious is caused by a bad relationship, how can a pill help? If the reason we are stressed or anxious is caused by having no money to feed our family, how can a pill help?

A pill can mask your emotions, to help you feel slightly better short term, but it is never going to fix the problem, as the problem is a bad relationship or lack of money. The ONLY thing going to help long term is to fix the relationship or to get more money.

So when looking at mental health, going to the cause is the way to really treat the illness. If the trigger was a previous trauma, let’s look at that. If the trigger was a death of a loved one, and you are dealing with grief, let’s look at that. If you are using drugs, cigarettes, alcohol, food to abuse your body because of a lack of self-love due to abuse, let’s look at that.

In this magazine our experts will talk about mental health, therapies that can help, and give you some ideas of how you can bring your mental health back into balance, so you can live the best life possible for you.

I really hope you gain benefits from their knowledge.
