holistic mental health treatment: a blog for and by people with mental illness

This site is here to help you develop your own mental health treatment and support system.

Are you struggling with mental health issues? Do you have  the appropriate support tools?

This site is by and for people who have gone through mental health issues and want to learn to deal with them… in a holistic manner, using all kinds of healing therapies including food, nutrition, sleep, visualization, meditation, breathing, and many others… meaning holistic mental health support.

I have struggled with social anxiety for almost twenty years.

During this time I have been through and experimented a lot in dealing with this issue.

I know what closeting in your room for days is all about, laying in bed all night, depressed and sad, wondering why you don’t have any friends,  how you should talk to people, should you say this or that, how should you behave…

I have seen it, felt it, experienced it, cried and laughed through it. I know its pain and I understand its loneliness.

Holistic mental health treatment: a new commitment to change my life

Many years ago, I made a commitment that I will deal with it. It was not easy, nor did sudden “miracles” happen.

I have come a long way from it and healing “miracles” did take a long time.

Although I still have my issues, I have support now, close mentors, good friends I can rely on to help me through the days. I am not that afraid of being in social situations, although I still have my days.

Over the years I picked up knowledge on how to nurture my own social anxiety support systems. using this website, I want to share how I developed a support framework for myself. This need not to be hard or difficult. It requires commitment and perseverance.

What works for one person may and does not necessarily work for another, so here are the many social anxiety support tools I use as part of my self-help process.

You are welcome to try some, disregard others, or try all — whatever works for you in a given time and circumstance. I hope you can use this part of your mental health support tools.

I want to emphasize that I am a not a licensed practitioner or healer, although I am certified to provide  Mental Health First Aid. This means:

  • I can provide immediate support and guidance in a safe environment.
  • I can comfortably have a conversation about mental health related issues.
  • I can be asked about professional and other supports.

Finally, this website is a result of many years of experimentation and process of recovery. I hope the information here helps you as much as it has helped me.

Good luck and don’t give up!

Yours in mental health,

Sidrah
