The world is changing quickly, and with those changes comes the requirement for us to adapt just as quickly. Navigating the components of our modern, social and disconnected world often leaves many of us struggling to cope. This struggle is congruent with the increase in mental health illnesses seen worldwide, such as anxiety and depression.
Mental health, though becoming an increasingly concerning component of our overall health, still lacks the necessary foundational and access to services. It’s perfectly acceptable to seek out services for our nutrition, our fitness, our sleep, and other aspects of our health, but oftentimes the stigma, guilt, or shame of mental health support has many people ready to dismiss or ignore their mental health concerns.
Our mental health is both a situational variable, and a long-term component, of our overall health and well-being, so there is no shame in seeking support as it, directly and indirectly, affects many other areas of our health.
We know that there are many ways that mental health can be treated, but also how it can be supported while treatment is taking place. Seeking the support of a mental health coach can help you navigate the world, struggles, and goals of your mental health to improve the quality of your life, joy, and happiness.
What is Mental Health Coaching?
Mental health coaching provides a support system for people who are struggling with their mental health. It is about providing people with tools, strategies, and skills to cope with their mental health concerns.
Mental health coaching often uses multiple forms of support, including cognitive and behavioral techniques. And while mental health coaching does use many methods of therapy and counseling, it's important to note that mental health coaching is not therapy or counseling as it is not meant to treat mental health concerns, but rather to work towards having a healthiermental state.
Mental health coaching is meant to help improve the quality of our lives and is often used alongside therapy and counseling support as mental health coaching helps address current and future goals, while therapy and counseling are the answer for addressing past problems that have brought you to your present struggles.
What Are the Benefits of Mental Health Coaching?
Mental health is a complex topic, it often includes mental illnesses Such as depression, anxiety,and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). However, it is not necessary to have a formal diagnosis to benefit from mental health coaching, as mental health coaching simply allows us to thrive as human beings.
Positive mental health has been shown to improve the quality of our life in all aspects, including areas like creativity, productivity, relationships, and even open access to new opportunities. All of this contributes to you leading a happier and more fulfilled life.
