Mental Health Awareness: Yoga/Mindfulness

Since its inception in 2015, International Day of Yoga is celebrated annually on June 21. An international day for yoga was declared unanimously by the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).

According to a [...]

Mental Health Awareness: Teaching Children About Your Own Mental Illness

As we continue to navigate through Mental Health Awareness Month, I would like to share part of my personal journey battling Clinical Depression and Anxiety for the last 23 years. Now, I’m not saying I’ve been constantly depressed and anxious for the last two decades. Rather, depression and anxiety are like any other problems in life. They ebb and flow just like the ocean’s tides. Fortunately, [...]

Mental Health Awareness: Stress in Children and Teens

Children and youth are as likely to experience stress as adults, but are just on the start of their lifelong journey to learning skills to verbalize it and develop coping techniques.  This past year has been especially stressful due to the fears and uncertainty with the pandemic, political unrest, frequent changes in the way we are allowed to live our lives due to the pandemic guidelines.  Kids need routine [...]

Mental Health Awareness: Eating Disorders

The next few Caring Corner articles will bring information about some of the most common mental illnesses.  Sometimes we are too close to the situation to recognize when we or someone we love is losing their mental balance.  It is often easier to ignore or deny a concern than to talk about it honestly or seek care.  But God promises to walk with us THROUGH the dark times so we need not fear taking the [...]
