It's still Mental Health month, and I hope you've been taking ten minutes a day for a "quickie" mental health break. I've managed to apply some of the suggestions, including chilling out in the hammock, writing in my journal, and playing some music on the keyboard. Which of the 50 stress relievers worked best for you? Please share your favorites in the forum!
This week, the BellaOnline Mental Health site focus turns to antidepressants. The latest article on the Mental Health Site can help you decide if antidepressants are right for you:
“Beginner's Guide to Antidepressants”
An overview of the potential risks and benefits of antidepressants, including questions to consider before you start medication therapy. Use this guide to make an informed choice.
The article page features other depression resources, too, including links to a depression symptom checklist, the recent BellaOnline article about depression and exercise motivation, and my favorite cognitive therapy self-help book.
I hope to hear from you soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I appreciate and rely on your feedback. And remember to pass this message along to family and friends who might benefit from the resources at BellaOnline. Thanks!
