Without exercise I think I'd be curled up in bed 24/7. Actually just had a conversation about that with someone in my office.

Nutrition, support groups, talk therapy, meditation, yoga, mindfulness, practicing gratitude.. the list goes on!

How To Treat Depression Naturally Without Drugs

Depression can have a devastating effect on not only the person impacted but all of their loved ones. For those who know someone who struggles with this illness, you will know that the journey is unpredictable and emotional. Although it can be challenging to see at the time, being diagnosed with a condition of this nature can be a beautiful wake-up call to re-evaluate your life: your purpose, lifestyle, support circle, diet and environment.

Thank you for reminder of this important document. MHCC's Family Caregiver Guidelines are undoubtedly their best work.

Good share. As someone who has been through this process can vouch for how complicated this is, especially when you are dealing with a mental health issue that is less overt and filled with ambiguity. On many occasions I found myself stuck between protecting a family member while advocating for the need for an intervention. Mental health is particularly challenging because of the stigma.
