How To Start A Career As A Mental Health Professional

It’s only been in the last couple of years that we’ve really started to understand the importance of mental health. In the past, people didn’t really know that much about mental health issues and that means they didn’t understand how important it is to talk about issues and seek help from a professional if necessary.

Increased awareness means that more people are getting the help that they need, and that’s great. However, that does raise another issue. There is a big lack of resources out there because there isn’t enough funding and there aren’t enough properly trained mental health professionals out there.

We Need to Talk More About Mental Health And Finding A Therapist

Mental health discussion has been a huge topic of late including the need to speak with a therapist. It’s real and needs to be discussed because it’s invisible. And just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean it’s not there.

Do you often go to work and feel a huge burden on your shoulders? Do you feel as though you are mentally incapable of changing your predicament? Or are you dealing with anxiety? These are just a few signs to encourage you to take care of YOU.

Knowing more about your psyche can be a gateway to discovering your strengths and with this knowledge, you can be able to use your emotions to empathize with colleagues or clients. Feeling authentic and open at work has been reported to lead to better performance, employee retention, engagement, and improved wellbeing.

How Telehealth Can Help With Medical Advice

Something that I tell myself and whoever cares enough to listen is that you can never be doing too much when it comes to taking care of your health – physically and mentally! This is where I love the idea of telehealth or telemedicine.

The first time I got introduced into the world of telehealth was after receiving my benefits information for a new job I had recently started once I was done with my Post-Graduate. As an immigrant, it was new to me. I remember being told that I could download an app and will have access to a number of doctors for listed health issues.

I never really got around to using it as much as I should have, but I was able to use it for prescription deliveries when needed. It was a way to stay on track of my health needs and reading about other benefits fascinated me at the time.

How To Emotionally Prepare For Colder Months As A Worker

The weather is gradually changing and even though I’m not all for it, I realize that nature will take its course. For the time being, I’m still enjoying the weather and rocking lighter clothes while it lasts!

I have a colleague who is in love with Winter and loves it when it snows! Alright, to be fair, it’s usually much warmer when it snows anyway. However, if you are like me, who isn’t in love with colder months then you have to emotionally brace yourself up for what is to come.

Confession time: I don’t like that I have to layer up in countless clothes so that I feel somewhat warm. Or that after I’ve worn hundreds of clothes, I feel heavy and it takes so much time! I certainly don’t like the wind and freezing rain and never enjoyed the days when I had to shovel snow.

Pheeeew! It felt good to clear that out.

But these are some of the downsides of earning a living. Depending on the type of job you do, you might be sitting for too long or standing excessively. It’s left for us to make the right decisions to live a healthier life.
