Mental health is a critical component of our overall wellbeing. It affects how we think, feel, and act in our daily lives. It can impact our relationships, work, and even physical health. Yet, despite its importance, mental health is often overlooked or stigmatized in society. In this blog post, we will explore why mental health matters more than ever and what we can do to prioritize it.

The pandemic has had a significant impact on mental health worldwide. The stress of isolation, fear of illness, financial concerns, and uncertainty about the future has led to increased levels of anxiety and depression. According to a survey conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), between April and June 2020, 40% of adults reported struggling with mental health or substance abuse.

However, even before the pandemic, mental health was a prevalent issue. In the United States, 1 in 5 adults experience mental illness each year. Globally, depression is the leading cause of disability, and suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15-29-year-olds.

The impact of poor mental health extends beyond individuals to families, communities, and the economy. Mental health conditions can lead to decreased productivity, increased healthcare costs, and higher rates of unemployment. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the global economy loses about $1 trillion a year in productivity due to depression and anxiety.

So, what can we do to prioritize our mental health?

  1. Seek help: If you are struggling with mental health issues, know that you are not alone. It is essential to seek help from a mental health professional who can provide you with support and treatment options.

  2. Practice self-care: Taking care of your mental health is just as important as taking care of your physical health. Practice self-care activities that help you relax, such as yoga, meditation, or spending time in nature.

  3. Connect with others: Strong social connections can help improve mental health. Reach out to friends or family members for support, or consider joining a support group.

  4. Stay active: Regular physical activity has been shown to improve mental health by reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety.

  5. Reduce stress: Chronic stress can have a negative impact on mental health. Find ways to manage stress, such as through mindfulness or therapy.

  6. Educate yourself and others: Learn about mental health, and challenge stigma and discrimination associated with it. Educate others on the importance of mental health and how to seek help.

Final thought

In conclusion, mental health is a critical aspect of our overall wellbeing, and it matters more than ever. The pandemic has brought to light the importance of prioritizing mental health, but it is an ongoing issue that requires ongoing attention. By seeking help, practicing self-care, connecting with others, staying active, reducing stress, and educating ourselves and others, we can work towards improving our mental health and reducing the stigma associated with it. Remember, it's okay not to be okay, and seeking help is a sign of strength.

Oxygen to the rescue! Great for Mental Health, Brain Injury, Detox, inflammation

Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers are one of the oldest and safest treatments available. Oxygen detoxifies and heals. I was introduced to Hyperbaric Oxygen Chambers (HBOC) by Dr. Amen, a world reknown Psychiatrist. Oxygen is great for ADD, Mood Disorders, Trauma, Insomnia, Brain injuries, Wound healing and Inflammation.

This is from Dr. Amen's Clinic: "If you are struggling with a mental health condition, recovering from a concussion or traumatic brain injury (TBI), or dealing with cognitive or memory problems, hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be for you. People all over the world have reported recovering from a variety of conditions and experiencing dramatic improvements with this type of popular therapy."

Most people will feel a difference off of one treatment, especially if you typically have trouble sleeping. You will sleep like a rock.

Release & Transmute: Emotional Healing Session

In this active participation session, we will work through personal emotional blockages using a series of practices including meditation, sound, breathwork and visualisation to identify, acknowledge, feel and release these emotions.

This session is open to all and particularly those who feel that they have unresolved trauma that they would like to address.

This is a space to take healing into your own hands and shift traumatic energy and transform it into new experiences that bring forth positive life changes and improved mental, physical, emotional and spiritual health.

The session is multi-sensory to enable participants to access various aspects of their being to draw out cellular memories of these past events to confront and manage them better moving forward.

You will need:

  • A private space where you can lie or sit up and relax comfortably
  • A note pad to journal your experiences and emotions
  • A blindfold/eye cover
  • Your camera will need to be on
  • If you wish you can have candles and incense of your choice for your personal space

Ancestral Voices Co-founder Verona Spence-Adofo launched the Release & Transmute: Emotional Healing Sessions to the public this year. It is a series of techniques she has used in her private consultations to great effect to assist in overcoming blockages we put up to deal with past uncomfortable experiences.
Drawn from her knowledge accumulated over 12 years of working with different healers and medicine people, a culmination of therapies she used on her own emotional blockages first and then successively on those who have used her services and gifts.
