Depression, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, eating disorders, and addictive behaviors are some examples of mental disorders, which affect your mood, thinking, and behavior for a sustained period of time. The stigma around mental health can sometimes make people afraid to reach out for help or support. Do you often feel detached, tired, uninterested, insomnic, or hypersomic, lost of appetite, or sucidal? These could be some signs that you or someone you know might be dealing with mental health problems.

  1. Just wanted to say thank you for everyone's support of our channel. It's so nice to read each of your messages and comments thanking the work that we do. We take around 1 month to make videos and we can't thank you for the appreciations!

  2. A kid in my cooking class asked why I always look so tired and now it just unlocked a new insecurity 😀
    I look tired all the time cause my depression causes me to sleep later than usual. I usually fall asleep by 8/9 but I go to bed at 12/1 am now

  3. Hello everyone, if you are struggling with mental health issues, know you are not alone. I am currently struggling with mental health issues, such as anxiety every single day since the year began. Approximately 1 in 4 people experience mental health issues each year. Keep on fighting this mental health issue and you will find it gets better. We will always SUCCEED!

  4. God loves you. I have family with little or lot of these issues. One eats healthy no pill s very little health issue. And other family member who takes pills some of these symptoms. With professional help. Make sure you take care of self . Everyone has the symptoms but some people control better then others it's ok.

  5. Seek help from a professional. Lots of people do not understand this. I have children in school who suffer this Thai help. Also people in my family also suffer this.

  6. I can't remember how many videos in your channel I've watched. And I am so glad to have found this channel. It helped me a lot understand what was going on with me. I am in the process of healing and trying again. God bless you all. Thank you so much for your videos. I am having the courage to try again.

  7. my humor can change a lot all of a sudden but im trying to contain my anger every time it happens and im doing pretty well so far (i have contained a little dozen these 2 past months)
    and i already had suicidal thoughts which were more passive even though i made plans on it but i think i have it somewhere still

  8. Eating good helps me with no sugar or processed foods, high fat, low carb or Keto. Being creative like photography for me. And exercise, I walk 50 min every am. I like to medicate with cannibis to help with sleep but it causes too much brain fog. I have been smoking for 40 years. Now addicted, wish never started or did other drugs in youth. Smoking herb is better than taking valium.
    The mental health industry is a paradox. Covid has been harsh, bringing out negative actions in people.

  9. Yes absolutely true. I have complex-ptsd, trauma, major depression and anxiety and ocd not counting all my other health issues. I have a great doctor who's doing the best they can to truly help me. I have an excellent counselor as well. I take my medications everyday like my doctor tells me to do. I'm not going to lie. I struggle almost everyday with my complex ptsd and major depression and anxiety and ocd. I went through severe trauma in my childhood and most of my adult life. I go at my own pace and take it day by day. I'm disappointed in myself for not getting better faster but each person is different and unique.
