If you are experiencing mental health/wellbeing challenges please reach out to your local medical professionals or hotlines. The advice offered here are some tools which may work for some individuals but not all.  “Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make healthy choices. Mental health is important in every stage of life. Mental and physical health are equally important components of overall health.” (Centre for Disease Control and Prevention).
