A few weeks ago BuzzFeed observed a mental health awareness week. They posted several well made videos about mental health. Usually I choose one or two videos on a topic and incorporate them into a blog post, but BuzzFeed made so many good videos that I’ve decided to just compile some of them here. I hope one/some of these speak to you in a useful way.

Sometimes finding the right medication to treat a mental health disorder can be a lot of work. It typically takes a couple of weeks for many medications to take full effect and everyone responds to each medication in their own way. Sometimes it can take a few tries to get the right medication and dosage.

If you or someone you love are suffering from any of these issues, it may be time to consider counseling. Give me or another therapist a call to talk about what is going on in your life and how therapy can help.
