Week #2: July 23, 2017
“You are not alone!”
This week we were able to dive into a conversation about Mental Health and Therapy/Recovery. If you missed the meeting and would like to contribute to the conversation you can comment below to answer some of the questions that were asked/topics discussed during “Tea of the Week”.
Take a second to watch this video about mental health and give the NAMI site a look! https://vimeo.com/36995523
1. Why are we not allowed to have “weak” moments?
2. Should we rely on therapy or religion? Should there be a combination of both?
3. When do you know that enough is enough? When should you seek help?
4. Why are we more inclined as a culture to be prideful and not ask for help?
5. How do we stop the cycle to heal our families?
Feel free to share personal stories or suggestion on how to handle problems concerning mental health in the comments section below!
