According to the WHO, 322 million people across the globe suffer from depression
During the last couple of years, due to a wide variety of scientifically studied reasons, the mental health of people around the globe has steadily declined. This has led to the appearance of numerous mental conditions, some of which are bound to have a seriously negative impact on the lives of suffering individuals.
We all have tough days in our lives but there are some of you who have even tougher days then usual. On those days, you may feel lost and alone and as if you have no support system to call out to for help. While you are going through your emotional battles for many different reasons, it feels like your world is crumbling piece by piece and you started to give up hope. Being in that situation the most important thing is to have someone to help you through it. If your unfortunate enough to be going through this alone then you may have gotten use to handling everything by yourself, including taking care of yourself or seeking help for yourself.
Tips To Get You Started
Not everyone has family, so it is important to know that you cannot do everything by yourself. Note to self “Family is not always blood”. It is also important to know when to reach out to someone for help. Depression is a front runner in the mental health industry. Some suffer from it more severe than others and some people cannot get through a really bad day of depression without a support system. If you or someone you know is suffering from depression or suicidal thoughts or have experienced a trauma that has you feeling stuck in life and you cannot get through it on your own, here is 3 tips you can use to get you started:
- Reach out for help.
- Create you a support system
- Engage in an outside activity such as exercise or one of your favorite hobbies
These three things will not only get you started but they will help keep you on track with your healing journey.
