Day 781: came out to Illinois to surprise our (myself and @rmw1890 ) fraternity brother for his 30th birthday! Thanks for filming, @nicoleew129. • This is about more than just pushups - the 22 Pushup Challenge originated as a way to spread awareness that an average of 22 combat veterans take their own lives each day. • A recent statistic has shown that the number has decreased slightly to about 20 a day, but that is still too many! • If you need resources, you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255). Or text HELLO to 741-741 for the Crisis Text Line. • If you or someone you know is struggling with thoughts of suicide, reach out and ask for help. It could save a life! • If you’d like to participate in the 22 Pushup Challenge, I encourage you to do so! Just record a video and post it on social media (Instagram, Facebook... wherever). • It doesn’t have to be “pretty” because it’s “not about the pushups” it’s about the awareness!

Does anyone else ever feel like society pressures them to plaster a smile on their face at all times? I can be having the worst day on record and I still walk around bearing this fake grin and telling everyone, “I’m fine.” It seems like when we show we’re struggling, we get told “be positive” or “pick yourself up by the bootstraps and move on.” For some, it might be that easy but when you have a mental illness like depression or anxiety, those words are like a slap in the face. . We need to give one another grace to feel all of our emotions, even when they aren’t good ones. We need to learn how to be comfortable with the not-so-wonderful emotions. We need to remember that it’s okay to frown. It’s okay to fall apart. It’s okay to have bad days and spend nights in tears and it’s okay to say, “crappy” when someone asks how you are. It’s okay if getting out of bed is your biggest accomplishment for the day. . Nobody is on the up and up 100% of the time and if they tell you they are, they’re lying. . It’s okay to not be okay. And it’s okay to allow the people in your life with mental illness to have days where they’re not okay too.

Self-love is important, but let’s start with some self-like first. 💙⠀ ・⠀ #Repost @selfcareisforeveryone with @get_repost ⠀ ・・・⠀ In any relationship, before you love someone, you should like them first. ⠀ Do you like yourself? We have been talking about self-love all month but we often forget to talk about the step before “self-love”. A good place to start is to just acknowledge your own presence. This can be by looking into the mirror in the morning and saying “good morning” to yourself or wishing yourself a good day. :)⠀ ( 🎨 by @alyserurianidesign )

Polk County Public Schools struggling to fill mental health positions - The Ledger - Lakeland, FL Polk County Public Schools struggling to fill mental health positions Sunday Feb 17, 2019 at 2:41 PM Feb 18, 2019 at 9:42 AM According to data with the Florida Department of Education, Polk County received $2.4 million from the state to make those hires and pay for supplies, inpatient care and outpatient counseling. BARTOW — It has been a year since the murder of 17 students and educators at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and the subsequent passage of a school safety act named for the school. Among many things, the act calls for increased mental health services for troubled students. But the Polk County Public Schools district is struggling to fill a total of 25 mental health and support positions. And one school board member said the district should hire mental health counselors and social workers for every school in the district — all 150 of them. ... https://www.theledger.com/news/20190217/polk-county-public-schools-struggling-to-fill-mental-health-positions ... #bipolarwarrior #thebipolarbattle #bipolar #bipolartype2 #keeptalkingmh #bipolardisorder #bipolardepression #bipolartype1 #mentalhealth #bipolarawareness #bipolarstrong #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthstigma #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalillnessawareness #lithium #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalhealthsupport
'Night Owl' Brains May Not Function As Well for Daytime Work ... “night owls” — those whose internal body clock dictates they go to bed and wake up very late — appear to have fundamental differences in their brain function compared to “morning larks.” This suggests that night owls could be disadvantaged by the constraints of a normal working day. Researchers at the University of Birmingham discovered that night owls, who typically have an average bedtime of 2:30 am and a wake-up time of 10:15 am, have lower resting brain connectivity in many of the brain regions associated with the maintenance of consciousness. Importantly, this reduced brain connectivity was tied to poorer attention, slower reactions and increased sleepiness throughout the hours of a typical working day. According to the Office for National Statistics, around 12 percent of employees work night shifts. It is well-established that night-shift workers often face huge negative health consequences due to the constant disruption to sleep and... . . . hcentral.com/news/2019/02/18/night-owl-brains-may-not-function-as-well-for-daytime-work/143006.html . . . #thebipolarbattle #bipolarwarrior #bipolar #bipolartype2 #keeptalkingmh #bipolardisorder #bipolardepression #bipolartype1 #mentalillness #bipolarawareness #bipolarstrong #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillnessawareness #mentalhealthstigma #lithium #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthblog #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalhealthsupport

Do you ever feel like you do know who the reflection is look back at you in the mirror? That is very common, especially when I am dealing with a bout of depression or fighting through a manic episode. It can be difficult but the upside is that it will not last. Know that it will not last. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo: https://pin.it/7rr3cpplyklozk #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealthisreal #mentalhealthadvice #mentalillnessisreal #goodmentalhealth #endthesilence #stigmafighter #mentalillnessrecovery #keeptalkingmh #mentalhealtheducation #creativethinkers #dontsufferinsilence #seekhelp #medicatedandmighty #medicatedandmotivated #mybestself #beautifulbraincollective #beautifulbraincampaign #beautifulbrainbrigade #beautifulbraincrusade #despiteadiagnosis #chronicallyillnotcrazy #beautifulbrainmagazine

Drained. . . It's been a week. . I was on a huge high for most of this month and was waiting for the fall & it came. . I can't remember the last time I felt that lost, detached, numb. . It's a truly terrifying feeling. . I'm starting to find myself again now but I'm still drained. Still trying to find that push, that drive. . Hopefully next week it will come back to me. . . . . . . . . . #photography #rednsilverphotography #mentalhealth #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthawareness #keeptalkingmh #mentalillness #depression #invisibleillness #drained

*GIVE YOUR BRAIN A (COFFEE?!) BREAK* Couldn’t resist this one again! Day Five of #bookwriting is REAL.

Just trust me. Most of what I talk with people about in therapy is relationships... and relationships with their family is a big one." ••• Tag someone who may need this reminder. ••• Caption [Most people have a complicated relationship with their family.

many people are often fearful about calling hotlines to talk about their problems. this is often because they don’t know what to expect and the unknown can be very scary, especially when you’re already in a crisis. if people know what to expect, then it may help to encourage them to take the plunge and call because it won’t be so daunting if you know roughly what to expect. not all hotlines operate in the same way, but this is the general procedure! - #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #selfcare #selfhelp #selfhealth #selfcareishealthcare #selflove #recovery #help #support #endthestigma #doesnotdefineyou #activist #reachout #speakout #keeptalkingmh #mentalhealthblogger #therapy #breakthesilence #invisibleillness #mentalhealthmatters #crisis #helpline #hotline #suicide #suicideprevention #help #support

Exciting to be in the #print @nypost talking about #bibliotherapy . It’s a great adjunctive treatment that I prescribe (as an Rx!) to my clients in-between sessions!
