Between work, school, family, and friends, it’s all too easy to focus on your mental health last. But a big part of showing up for those you care about is showing up for yourself. When you prioritize your well-being, everyone around you reaps the benefits.
And you start by giving yourself permission.
Therapy can be the permission you need to prioritize your mental health.
Permission means different things to different people. Maybe you set a boundary, or take a needed break. Maybe it’s about letting go, or being brave enough to try something different. A therapist can help you identify what you need and guide you on the path to getting there.
You might give yourself permission…
Therapy encourages you to value your well-being and start showing up as your full self. Join Talkspace today and get $100 off your first month with code MHAM.
Mental Health Awareness Month has been observed yearly in May since 1949.
Mental Health Awareness Month raises awareness for mental health conditions, which reduces stigma and normalizes the conversation around mental health. Also cover why this month is important
Mental Health Month helps provide support to those struggling with mental illness, educating the public and advocating for policies that support people with mental illness. This month helps raise awareness around the impact of trauma on the emotional, physical, and mental health of communities and individuals. Mental health Month has highlighted the need for prevention and treatment of mental health issues.
In 2022, Talkspace’s Mental Health Awareness Month is focused on giving yourself permission to prioritize your mental and emotional well-being—and that can mean writing yourself a “permission slip” to go out there and do it. Previous years have centered on reducing mental health stigma and turning a corner to face new beginnings.
There are many different types of triggers that can impact mental health. External triggers include negative stimuli in the environment such as people, places, and things. Internal triggers are negative thoughts, feelings, and emotions. Trauma triggers are reminders of a past traumatic event we have experienced such as a place or a situation.
