Don’t struggle with anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress, or other illnesses in isolation.
Mental health and addictive disorders are far too common to be a source of shame. You should never be afraid to ask questions regarding mental health.
Mental health is also a lot like physical health: You can take what is good about it and build upon it, rather than just “managing” it when illness arises. That’s why our basic attitude toward our work at SummitStone is optimistic: People can and do recover–but they can aspire to and achieve things far beyond recovery.
