WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Overcoming mental health issues might seem like an insurmountable task as doing even the most basic things can be a daily struggle. However, as is with many things, getting the ball rolling by making a start is the key and luckily there are a lot of things you can do to improve your quality of life.

The three pillars to successfully combat depression and to boost our mental health are lifestyle improvements, professional help, and support by friends and family or a strong support network that helps decrease isolation and increasing connectedness.

Engaging in self-care can enhance your mood by injecting positivity, reinforcing positive feedback loops and giving you the mental resilience that helps deal with stress, symptoms of depression, and other mental health issues.

Getting started on a self-care routine can be overwhelming as motivation is hard to come by. There are a number of options for professional help that can provide support, help you form a safety plan and support positive change of identity-beliefs to assist you in improving your mental health.

Depression is an illness that increases the want to isolate from other people, however, one of the best ways to combat depression is by getting support from your friends, family and immediate peers.
