Rocking Mental Health: The Blog 

by Jason Kehl

I describe my mental health journey and my battle with depression and anxiety for you. My goal is to show you that you are not alone and It is Ok to not be OK. Everyone of us is always working on our mental health and sometimes we hit a bump in the road. Sometimes we find ourselves in a hole. I've been there and thankfully we get another chance. All we have to do is ask for help and we can start our journey towards better and stronger mental health. Let's walk this journey together.

Cell Phone Addiction:
What Are The Signs And Symptoms


by CellPhoneDeal

Feather:Book logo.png

Cell phones and smartphones are some of the handiest, most entertaining, and most life changing devices we have ever envisioned. Many of the electronics and devices of the past several decades have effectively been rolled into them, and at this point, there is little information they cannot access and little they cannot do in general. Have an electronic need? It's right in your pocket.

Yet with such handiness, there is a bit of a darker side to them. People are often glued to their screens so much that they ignore the world around them. And while some say it's just teens, it's been teens for about a decade now, and those teens grew up. In truth, people of all ages deal with cell phone addiction, and it can be a serious matter. It deserves more attention, and researchers and even governments are realizing this (some faster than others)...

Helping Survivors Of Sexual Assault And Abuse

I Will Not BE My Mental Illness

by Karina Pommainville-Odell

Welcome to my mental health blog; led by experience and not a degree! For years I’ve been struggling with mental illness and through the darkness I discovered my passion…helping fellow strugglers in any way I can! Accompany me on my quest for the light; I won’t sugar coat anything but I CAN tell you that it gets better. Together we can share our experiences, feelings, EVERYTHING- all in a safe, non-judgmental environment. Join a community that truly understands. Join a community that welcomes you as you are and not who you ‘should’ be!

 

Here’s some of what you’ll find:

 

  • Therapeutic techniques and principles that I’ve learned. 

  • Coping strategies. 

  • Relatable anecdotes that make for teachable moments. 

  • Interviews with other strugglers as well as mental health practitioners. 

  • Journal prompts, positive habit forming, productivity tips for work and school, etc. 

  • Art therapy and project ideas.  

  • Crisis and help resources. 

  • Humour and doggo cuteness to brighten your day! 

 

Join me on Instagram, Facebook and YouTube for additional posts on a myriad of subjects! 

Our mission is to assist anyone who has been victimized by sexual assault or abuse. Our website is a compilation of information around different instances of sexual violence. We offer resources to assist survivors and their families, and we will continuously be adding more.

Matt's Mishaps

by Matthew Morgan

When I started Matt’s Mishaps, I was looking for an excuse to write more in my free time. I wanted to focus my writing on something that I was both passionate and knowledgeable about. I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression since middle school. Thanks to therapy, self-help books, and other helpful resources, I have been able to gain a better understanding of my issues. I am also very passionate when it comes to mental health awareness, especially when it comes to younger folks. In launching Matt’s Mishaps, I wanted people (particularly younger individuals) to know that they aren’t alone in their struggles. And that it is perfectly acceptable to make a bunch of mistakes as you grow up. Through Matt’s Mishaps, I have been able to connect with people who are also passionate about mental health awareness (such as Jason), which to me is so special. It helps me realize even more how many people suffer from mental illnesses, and how beneficial support systems can be. Going forward, I hope that my blog can help provide others with a sense of togetherness regarding mental illnesses.

Vision issues can negatively impact your mental health. Struggling to see clearly is frustrating, and can make everyday life harder. In turn, this can sometimes lead to depression, anxiety, and social withdrawal.

We recently published a guide on various mental health challenges that come with having vision impairment including causes, treatment, and resources for those struggling to find help.

Six Litre Productions Blog

by Ian B. Cassidy

Hi, my name is Ian B. Cassidy from Six Litre Productions and I am passionate about mental health and in particular men's mental health. Having my own struggles has given me a keen insight into the impact it can have on our day to day lives and the lives of those close to us. It is important to remember in a lot of cases we may feel alone but our mental health can have a real effect on others. I use photography, poetry and writing to varying degrees as platforms to express myself. It is my experience that these things can be beneficial to me in releasing some of the pressure that I feel when I am struggling mentally. Recently I have done a series of self portraits that were very confronting for me and difficult to do. I took these at my most vulnerable moments and they capture genuine emotion. I have also turned to verse and let my poetry tell my story. These have been very therapeutic outlets for me and I am both excited and apprehensive about sharing them. I hope they can resonate with those that are struggling and as such sends a clear message that they are not alone and it is ok to not be ok. I have learnt much over the years and with the help of good counsel I have been able to recognise key aspects of managing my mental health, I have over the years shared a lot of what I have learnt with others who face similar challenges and I have received great feedback and seen positive results in regard to some of those I have shared with and how they improved their mental state. It is this that encourages me, to be able to lessen the burden one might feel is an absolute privilege. I do not have all the answers, I am not an expert, I have no formal training in mental health. What I do have is first hand experience with how a decline in mental health can feel, I do have a genuine interest in those that have suffered or felt powerless and most importantly I want to break down the barriers that society and our environments have put up in our search for mental wellness. It's time to be honest, to respect and love ourselves enough that we will seek out help in whatever form we need to make ourselves better. It's time to put aside the fear, the false bravado and the masks and admit we need help and not feel weak for asking. It is our time to heal ourselves.
