Debunking 5 Common Mental Health Myths

There is still so much mental health stigma in this world, even after all these years. While we have made some incredible progress toward understanding mental illness, what causes it, and how we can treat it, there is still a lot more pertinent information that we have yet to uncover and learn about.

Educating people on mental health and mental health disorders can help tear down the walls of mental health stigma one brick at a time. People fear what they don’t know. So, helping people who have never struggled with their mental health or who have never had a loved one who struggled with their mental health learn the facts from the myths can help make the topic feel less scary for some people.

Don’t get caught up in believing in these 5 common mental health myths!

Many people in recovery struggle to balance mental and physical health, especially when first coming home from a rehabilitation center. Sometimes we think that too much damage has been done to make health and wellness a priority now. Others may feel like they don’t deserve health and happiness, while others—often, many others—come home to stigma and don’t have a supportive and healing community to rely on. (Continue Reading)

Dealing with Anxiety and Stress in the Workplace & How to Cope

There is no doubt about it, there is not one single job out there that won’t cause you some form of stress or anxiety at one point or another. Work wouldn’t be called work if it was easy peasy and stress-free. For someone without mental health disorders, work can have its moments where you feel like you’re about to lose your mind and you just want everything to pause for a moment. For people who struggle with mental health disorders, it can become even more challenging because you’re already dealing with daily battles inside your mind that no one else knows about.

Welcome To My Bipolar Mind

|You Are Not Alone|


Welcome to My Bipolar Mind:

If you are looking for mental health information and resources, you are in the right place. My Bipolar Mind doesn’t just offer textbook cookie cutter articles written by people who wouldn’t know what a depressive or manic episode actually feels like and who only know what they read about mental health from books.

Instead, here, we share valuable information that has been created by people who actually have mental health conditions and who have lived through it which can make things feel that much more personal and relatable. If we are knowledgeable about certain mental health topics, we believe in sharing that knowledge to help tear down the stigma surrounding mental health one brick at a time.

We do more than just share the knowledge we have; we also share our own personal obstacles and triumphs regarding our own mental health right here on this blog.

We believe that no one should feel lost and alone when struggling with their mental health. We wanted to create a safe space for our readers to be able to share what they have been through by contributing heartfelt guest posts as well.

So, since you are here please take a moment to look around! If you like what you see, don’t forget to follow us to stay-up-date and receive alerts when a new post is available.

  3. Raw. Honest. The author takes you on a ride that most will not completely understand. Anyone that deals with Bipolar depression will feel all too familiar with the dialogue. Those that do not might, hopefully, gain an insight into the Bipolar mind. That place is a chaotic and fearful place to live. I know because I live there. Where every Bipolar mind is different, there are so many similarities. Knowing we are not alone, helps create for us a place of comfort as well as sadness knowing that others feel the way we do. I found this book to be almost too close to home and yet it pulled me in closer. Thank you for bringing the depth of Bipolar disorder into the light for others to see. Too many of us that suffer from this illness tend to hide from others for fear of living less than human. Well done.
