I will continue to share resources for anyone who wants to cope and learn more about depression and anxiety, including those who are supporting someone else with mental illness.
I discuss why mental health awareness is more important than ever. I also include a list of mental health topics on which I plan to bring our real life experiences and tips to heal.
When we cope with depression, the tips we receive are often the same. However, these suggestions are often easier said than done, and might not be realistic to all stages of depression.

I talk about Behavioral Activation to treat depression. I’m revealing one of my projects; The Joey!
I started a course on grief. The course is called Writing Your Grief. Every day, we receive an email with a writing prompt encouraging us to explore an aspect of our grievance. Today is Day # 3.

In this post, I share my journey of my complicated grief and how it was for the few months after the accident. I explain what is complicated grief (definition) and how it is to be a grieving mother.
