Introducing Mental Health Awareness

We all have a lot to deal with in our lives, and when it comes to our mental health, nothing could be more true. But unlike our physical health, not a lot of people pay active mind to it until something goes wrong.

Then what do you do?

Most people try and struggle through depression, anxiety, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and other mental health concerns on their own. At least at first. Some make it through okay doing that, but most need more help.

That’s why I’m pleased to introduce Mental Health Awareness with Helen Nieves, LMHC, ADC-C. This is a blog devoted to all topics in mental health, including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, depression, life transitions, behavioral disorders, panic, assertiveness, anger and much more.

Research, tools, suggestions, and personal experiences are included in this blog. This blog will range from informative and educational to insightful and beneficial. It is intended to help readers implement helpful tools and techniques into their life and to achieve personal growth and well-being. Who wouldn’t like to increase the happiness in their lives?

Helen is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor working and living in the Greater New York City area. She provides individual therapy to children, adults and adolescent with various individual problems. You can learn more about Helen here.

Please give Helen a warm Psych Central welcome over at her blog now, Mental Health Awareness.
