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.

**Documentary Review: In Our Community: Mental Illness: Diana Guido
In Our Community. It is so difficult to lay your life open, but in this case Ms. Diana Guido does this and does it very well. She is a peer support, substance abuse counselor for Santa Clara County. She gives a very good over view of mental health services. This includes a discussion of the WRAP course. Wellness Recovery Action Plan is an evidence based peer support service in which attendees develop their person plan for wellness. She also talks of being a Mental Health First Aider. This also is a national training to help encourage people to look out for each other. She also educates people to the county's crisis and warm line, 1-855-278-4204.
