The new year is quickly approaching. For a lot of people, it’s a time to hit the reset button on fitness and nutrition, let go of negative habits and expand career or travel goals. It’s also a great opportunity to prioritize your mental health.
We know that mental health treatment can be expensive and time-consuming. According to Cohen Veterans Network’s 2018 America’s Mental Health study, one in four Americans have had to choose between getting mental health treatment and paying for daily necessities. Sometimes the help of a mental health professional or treatment is necessary for recovery, but you can help manage your mental health challenges in efficient and low-cost ways.
Use these self-care strategies from the MHFA curriculum to put your mental health first in the new year.
Thank you all for your hard work and dedication to making your community a healthier and safer place for people facing mental health and addiction challenges. We hope you have a happy and safe New Year!
