Health Is Vital

Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

**Mental Health Stigma

Mental Health Stigma can be costly.  It often prevents people who could really benefit from treatment, from actually getting the treatment they need because they are worried what others might say.  This can lead to hospitalization, untreated mental health symptoms which can be very uncomfortable, more costly treatments, and sometimes even death. May we be considerate of others, and show respect for all people.
