A mental health reminder

A relapse, a sudden series of attacks, a string of awful days (or whatever your step back may be), does not decrease your value.

Take your time, do some self-care, even if it’s just being proud that you got through another day. Reflect on the progress you’ve made.

You are strong: One step back is nothing when you look at the journey you’ve already made.

You aren’t alone.

That Side of Depression

Why do people never talk about the part of depression when you just don’t want anything anymore? Everybody talks about when it hurts like hell, when you cry, when you cut, when you take drugs, when you break down. But no one ever talks about when you just lay down in your room, with a hole inside of you that you don’t know how to fill, and you don’t want to do anything even things you usually like. So, you just spend your day kinda waiting for it to end and it’s horrible because you feel empty and guilty for that at the same time.

Workplace Stress

Managers can be open to the concept of flexible hours and to temporarily reassigning work when they see symptoms of stress.  Additionally, they can encourage an open dialogue about the employee’s needs and attempt to work with the employee through a difficult time.  Many stress-related circumstances are temporary in nature.

Mental Health and the Workplace

Mental health problems and illnesses are the leading cause of workplace disability in Canada, representing 15 percent of Canada’s burden of disease. A Canadian Medical Association study in 2008 indicated that only 23 percent of Canadians surveyed said they would feel comfortable talking to an employer about their mental illness. Health Canada asserts that one in five Canadians will suffer some form of mental health trouble in their lifetimes.
