Mental Health

This is less of a journal than I might like, so I won’t get overly personal is this post, but I do want to use this as a space to talk about something very important. While this isn’t an issue for everyone, being aware of the state of your mind and your mental health is just one more important part of living away from family. Most people around you at school won’t have a good measure for your personality, and they won’t be able to tell if you need some cheering up, some space, or whatever a person needs to relax or maintain their sanity. 

Many of the more dramatic results of mental health issues are preventable. This is what makes them tragic when they do happen. When you live at school it’s a good idea to find at least one person that you can honestly talk to about what’s going on in your head. As long as this person is trust worthy and of sound judgement they can be anyone. The real point of the post is simply to remind people that these are real issues and it’s ok to get help when you need it. Stay happy and healthy readers.  🙂
