The holidays are supposed to be filled with joy, but for some they can be very difficult. Practice setting boundaries when it comes to pleasing others and make sure you are still showing up for yourself. Self love will help you give the gift of positive energy to those around you ❤️

I am very excited to announce that we will be changing the name of Mental Health Global Network to MOTH.

While our values, mission, and core business will remain the same, MOTH is a new beginning that will be accompanied by new additional services.

MOTH, otherwise known as "minds open to help," was founded to educate individuals on how to help support their peers with mental health, and guide them towards the light during moments of darkness. 

The most notable characteristic of a moth is its attraction to light. They are often overlooked creatures, as they live in the shadow of the butterfly- but they are excellent pollinators, and equally as important to our ecosystem. Moths are highly spiritual, wise, and in many cultures represent determination and positivity.

If today wasn’t as good as yesterday that’s okay. If today is great, and tomorrow is a little bit harder, that’s okay. If you’ve been feeling down for a while now, remember that the only direction to go is up. Be patient with yourselves, and be patient with those around you who are navigating their own journey to happiness. We are all in this together.

People are hardwired to want to do things on their own and be independent-minded. Sometimes we want to prove that we are find on our own at the expense of our mental health. Some people are also afraid that they’ll be shunned or rejected if they ask for help. Even when we don’t admit it, most people want help and want to offer help to others. Accepting opportunities to ask for help in simple ways can really make a difference over time. We feel more confident and better when we are open about our needs.

This week try to spend some time thinking about the friends, neighbors or family members in your life who support you. Think of people you can go to. Think of ways you might need help right now mentally or physically. Then communicate about it. There is no shame in asking for help.

When life feels chaotic or overwhelming, it can be easy to get stuck in a cycle of stress and worry. Especially in todays world where real trauma is happening. We may feel trapped in the world around us. Or powerless when the government is dictating our lives. When we feel deep fear for the future and question when we will see change. Some of these things are just out of our control. We can get involved and do things to make a difference. At the end of the day it’s hard to accept things we can’t control or change. But there are things you can do to cope and find some calm. Here are some tips.

The decision SCOTUS made today to overturn Roe V. Wade will have a detrimental impact on both the physical and mental health of not only women, but individuals of all sexual identity across the country and globe. This decision is not only dangerous to women and those who are capable of bearing a child, but also to the human rights of all American citizens. This step backward represents the ability for SCOTUS to overturn other human rights that have been long fought for in this country such as gay and in*******al marriage. Their decision is a reminder that they do not believe the constitution was designed to protect all American citizens, but rather those who are white, male, catholic, and financially privileged.

We can expect that this decision will have devastating impacts on mental health in this country, validating many individual's worst fears and creating heightened anxiety around health, career path, financial stability, and ownership over life changing decisions. Those seeking abortions, especially those who are victims of poverty or r**e, will find themselves despondent and forlorn, unfortunately leading to an increase in su***de and other mental health crisis.

It is our responsibility as American citizens to speak out against this decision. Please join me in getting loud and refusing to take this sitting down.

Things might be difficult right now, but it won’t always be this way. Take it one day at a time. Notice how time starts to heal. Time will start to change how you feel. Keep yourself busy despite what you’re going through. Lean on your loved ones and talk through it. Find distractions that help. And remember this too, shall pass.

It’s easy to respond immediately and to be fueled by emotion in a certain moment, but we might regret this later. We can all benefit from taking a beat to think before reacting. This chart shows how pausing for just 90 seconds can lead to better outcomes in situations. This is your daily reminder to pause, take a deep breath and avoid doing or saying something in the heat of the moment that you may regret.

In the wake of the recent school shootings and tragedy, it’s hard to know when or how to approach these topics. It’s truly sickening and very difficult to process. Although people are resilient and often bounce back after difficult times, these events nearly always interrupt our sense of order and safety. The impact often extends to individuals who live far outside of the affected area with no personal connections to the event. Just seeing these mass violence incidents on the news or social media can be deeply traumatizing. Even mental health professionals with advanced training can become overwhelmed by the intensity of these tragic events. In the aftermath of recent shootings, MHGN would like to provide some tips for coping with the aftermath of a shooting. We are sending love to all of you trying to process this. It is devastating to think of all of the lives lost and the families affected. We pray for the community but also know that thoughts and prayers are never enough, we need change.

It’s important to evaluate our relationships from time to time. I’m not just referring to romantic relationships, but family relationships, friendships, working relationships as well. We need to check in with ourselves and decide if our network is good for us and our mental health. During Mental Health Awareness Month, we encourage you to reflect on your relationships and see where you can improve or remove certain relationships to better your mental health. Here are some questions you can ask yourself to evaluate whether your relationships are positive for you.

Moms never get enough credit or recognition for all that they do. Mothers are so familiar and present in our lives that we tend to take them for granted. In fact, when you think about it, motherhood in general is pretty amazing and inspiring. That’s why Mother’s Day shouldn’t just be about our own moms. It should be about appreciating all the mothers out there – the job they do, the sacrifices they make, and most of all, the love they give. Happy Mother’s Day! .

We feel triggered after something happens or sets us off. For example someone raises their voice and we feel shaky or shut down. Someone mentions an insecurity point, and we become instantly enraged or alarmed. Someone acts aggressively and we get scared and run away.

Whenever things like this happen, it’s likely that the situation has triggered an emotion. We find ourselves in a common stimulus–response pattern. Sometimes we can trigger ourselves subconsciously. We can cause the onset of emotions and get worked up unnecessarily. This can lead to extended emotional reactions that can be avoided. Here are some ways we trigger ourselves.
