Images Doctors say that mental health and wellness require just as much attention as physical health

Furthermore, 9.8 million adults experience a serious mental illness in a given year such as schizophrenia, bio-polar disorder, and major depression. However, it just not the person with the mental health condition that is being affected....the impact of mental illness can be seen throughout our personal and professional lives....on morning energy, we are going to dive deeper is the topic of mental illness as it relates to various areas of our lives.

"Everyone deals with tough times in life".

Navy Medicine East is focused on increasing awareness of psychological and emotional health among service members, veterans, family members and caregivers during the month of May in support of National Mental Health Awareness Month.

Dr. Grover said often times, mental health has a stigma around it.

NME's health care facilities-across the eastern hemisphere-are using this opportunity to provide tools and resources to help patients better understand access to care and to promote availability treatment options with the goal of building resilience.

"I think we need to spend more time looking at the prevention side of things instead of catching it halfway down the road", Hudspeth said. A reported 70 percent of adolescents with mental health issues don't receive the care they need. I don't know a soul who hasn't experienced their own battles with mental health or at least been touched by someone who has - we wanted to get the conversation out in the open and break the stigma a bit.

While attending therapy regularly for mental and emotional reasons, many people notice that physical symptoms are often treated as well.

Miller recommends to take stock of how you're feeling emotionally and what you're doing to take care of yourself. "It's a rude awakening for any parent", she said. "Note what barriers might come up when following through with this plan and problem-solve how to avoid them". "We're social creatures, fundamentally, so talking to people can be a real source of support and help", Speigel says.

"It is no different than diabetes, high blood pressure or any other medical diagnosis".

"Not only is the economy missing out on the skills and talents these workers have, but having to leave your job can worsen your mental health". The more we educate, the more comfortable people will feel getting help.

When someone is taken to the hospital for a mental health crisis, they are assessed by a psychiatrist or a telepsych and then play the waiting game to see if they will be placed in a mental health facility in a timely manner. If symptoms are minor in the beginning, they could escalate to a unsafe level.

"For me, regular exercise helps keep my stress level down", Elizabeth said.
