A Reminder To Take Care of Yourself And Others During Mental Health Awareness Month

May 1st kicked up Mental Health Awareness Month and now more than ever it’s important to bring attention the mental health. I’m of those people that’s annoyingly positive all the time and if something does get me down I tend to let it go very, very quickly. I’m ever always optimistic about everything in life. But during quarantine I came into contact with a wide variety of people online that weren’t as hopeful, confident, and positive as I was about life. I also became friends with people th...

Expert tips for maintaining your mental health during the pandemic

It’s that special time of year when both Mental Health Awareness Month in the US and Mental Health Awareness Week in the EU combine forces to become Super Duper Mental Health Awareness Time. We made that last part up, but the fact of the matter is that it’s safe to say those of us born after World War II have never collectively experienced anything like the COVID-19 pandemic as a global community. Everyone is affected by the pandemic in one way or another, and everyone has mental health. And tha...

Do You Trust Your Impulses? A Little Education Goes a Long Way

During May, in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, advocates like myself educate the public on various topics. One topic we don’t learn enough about is how emotional impulses affect our mind, body, and lives. Impulses, the strong biological pulls to take action, come from emotions. In fact, the whole purpose of emotions is to compel us to move. The word emotion comes from the Latin word “emovere ” meaning to “move out, remove, agitate.” From sprinting out of a burning building...

Suicide prevention requires prayer AND action

USA (MNN) -- We’re continuing a conversation today about Mental Health Awareness Month and the U.S. suicide rate. Read yesterday's article here . Suicide claimed over 47,000 lives in 2017, according to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention .

Burger King's anti-Happy Meals are pissing some people off, but BK is used to that

Earlier this week, Burger King introduced a new offering, a set of “Real Meals” acknowledging that people aren’t happy all the time. Including selections like the Pissed Meal, the Blue Meal and the DGAF Meal, they’re a playful dig at its competitor McDonald's Happy Meals. But, with the tagline "Feel Your Way," they're also meant to raise awareness for Mental Health Awareness Month in May—the brand partnered with Mental Health America on the idea, which was conceived out of Mullen Lowe U.S. H...

My Cats Saved My Life, More Than Once

For the first time since I adopted her, Tara’s taken to sleeping on the bed. I’m sitting here staring at the blinking cursor, waiting for the inspiration to come and words to flow out of my heart and mind. But my brain feels like it’s moving through molasses, and the thought of actually concentrating on anything makes me want to do anything but this. Junk TV? Yup. Video games? Yup, that too. But after missing last week’s post because I wasn’t feeling well, I figure it’s time to come clean about...

If Asian Americans struggle with Mental Health in May 2018

The month of May is Mental Health Awareness Month and Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. And these two things intersect, or shall we say, collide, for those who are Asian Americans and struggle with mental illness. Let’s do the math. The Asian American population is estimated at 21.4 million (as of 2016, cf. Census Bureau’s Facts for Features: Asian-American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month: May 2018) About 1 in 5 Americans struggle with mental health each year. That comes to...

The Skills You Need to Succeed Start in Your Head

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and it reminded me of an email I got from a VC mailing list. Leaders don’t often feel like they can — or should – share their stress and worries, especially with their team. Which is why I was surprised to see this statement in an email sent to f ounders and CEOs of a leading Silicon Valley VC firm: “Ever since I started the company, I’ve lost the ability to sleep through the night. I wake up with worries and concerns and anxieties, and toss and turn a...

It’s Mental Health Awareness Month: Trumpcare’s dangerous impact on mental health care

Last week, I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices cried out in terror and were suddenly uninsurable. While tracking the Trumpcare vote (AHCA), I felt like Princess Leia, helplessly watching the Empire destroy her home planet. Yes, the Senate still has to vote on it, and no, I’m not saying that Republicans are evil. But for me and so many Americans, Obamacare (ACA) got rid of the terror and carnage of being denied or unable to afford healthcare coverage based on pre-ex...
