Today’s cognitive distortion is “Global Labeling”. . This is where we take one or two experiences we’ve had with someone or something and generalize them into a 🌏 global negative judgment. An example might be, if a friend was late to get coffee once or twice, us thinking “this person is ALWAYS late. They don’t care about me, they don’t care about my time. They must be a terrible person. They must hate me!”. . The example’s a bit extreme, but this distortion is quite common. It’s also a common feeling to have about yourself- maybe you’re the “always late” person in the example. . It can also be connected to experiences or objects and not people- like, “I tried meditation, I got distracted, it didn’t work. Meditation is a load of crap”. 😂 I’ve heard that one before.. haha . What we should be aiming to do instead is to describe the experience in the context of the specific situation and use our W I S E M I N D 🧠 to help us reach a balanced view, like this: “my friend was late a few times to get coffee. I wonder what’s getting in the way of them being on time. Maybe they’re taking the bus and it’s a little late. Maybe they’re struggling with getting out of the house.” . This method requires investigation- and actually being open to new perspectives! Anyone have any examples to share? 🍂
It’s #mentalhealthmonday friends! As someone who uses humor as a coping mechanism I love this solidarity meme. Sadly though, there is a harsh truth behind this meme as people with these mental illnesses are demonized and portrayed in exceedingly negative lights throughout forms of media & societal standards. As a nurse I want to be part of the change to #endthestigma that plagues society and causes people with mental illnesses to be ostracized and abandoned. 👩🏻‍💻 🌡 💉 . . . . . #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #nursesofinstagram #medicine #rnlife #scrublife #newnurse #nursingstudent #registerednurse #nurses #nurseproblems #futurenurses #nursingschool #bipolardisorder #nurses #coping #nursepractitioner #nursestudent #mentalillnessawareness #starbucks #doctors #nightshiftproblems #hospitallife #mentalillness
Words of affirmation from the cosmos! Don’t throw away your blessing life has handed to you! In life these fundamental values are important for a balanced character-truth, respect,loyalty,compassion, empathy,and balance unconditional love are a key factor for one to create happiness from within. We can’t blame others for our choices we make and we can’t blame others for what we could be doing better. What we can do is seek the right professional help to always better our selfs. The first step for change is recognizing that you have been doing things the wrong way and now it’s time for teachings, growing with love is a lot harder than growing with bottled up feelings but it’s easy to pop the top and poor it out. #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillness #mentalillnessawarenessmonth #itsnevertoolate #changeisgood #balancedlife #happytrails #lacasakombucha #namaste #sandiego #tijuana #bajacalifornia #playasdetijuana #kombucha #kombuchabrewing #kombuchalove

Thanks @mentallyill_memes I think this really captures the one thought we have when people ask us how we are. We say "good" or "fine", but sometimes we just want to scream out what we are really feeling! We shouldn't have to hide what we truly feel; in fact, opening up about our feelings would be more helpful! Let's #stopstigma so we can be more open and not have to be in hiding! #RepostSave @mentallyill_memes with @repostsaveapp ・・・ #psychology #psychologist #mentalhealth #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillness #selfcare #depression #depressionawareness #anxiety #anxietyrelief #bipolar #schizophrenia #autism #adhd #ocd #bpd #insomnia
Happy #monday ! I thought I would start #researchmondays to help get the brain going for the week, and to share some interesting insights coming from the #psychology / #mentalhealth world. A huge part of mental health comes from the wonderful researchers in the field, which informs our practice. Although I consider myself mostly clinical, I utilize methods that are backed by #research to give my patients the best care! This article, from my #almamater #uic , highlights how expressing #gratitude can help us focus on what is really important! If you have an interesting article or #research you would like to share, please DM me! #psychology #psychologist #mentalhealth #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillness #selfcare #depression #depressionawareness #anxiety #anxietyrelief #bipolar #schizophrenia #autism #adhd #ocd #bpd
Todays post at the link in my bio is all about how my mental illness tricks me into thinking the worst about everything.

In my case this is especially true. I got into soaping to alleviate my depression and anxiety. Soaping will always hold a special place in my heart and that is why I am always so keen to share the gift of soaping with everyone! #soaperstars #soaperstarmama #soapmaking #soaperstar #mentalillnessawareness #artisansoap #handmadesoap
I could say so much about how it feels like it’s getting worse and what it’s doing to me. But I’m so exhausted. So tired. My sleep is constantly disturbed by nightmares or something else wakes me and I fall into anxiety. I just miss you so painfully. I love you, dad💔😢🦋 #bipolar #bipolardisorder #depressionawareness #depression #suicideprevention #suicideawareness #survivor #yourstoryisntoveryet #justsurvivesomehow #jss #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #illnevergetoveryou #illneverbethesame #suicideloss #imissmydad #suicidesurvivor #breakthesilence #stopthestigma
Our circle time yesterday Alhamdulillah. Impactful sharing and learning as always Alhamdulillah. Support is evidence based. Without support, it is nearly impossible for a patient to recover. Find that one person to help you go through life. Or better yet be that person for someone. That’s what caregivers do. That’s what mental health professionals strive for too. Thank you to all those out there that help people like us. Thank you. #miasa #miasamalaysia #journeytorecovery #everyonematters #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillnessawareness

another bad day, today. rock-bottom in fact. and i really don't know how to deal with it. i either sit down, think about the problems and work towards fixing them, or i admit defeat and give up. neither makes any difference. i either feel highly sensitive and emotional or devastatingly numb and cold. i either feel super motivated or i feel heavy and depressed. i either feel like i'm trying my best and moving forward with my life, or that i'm a complete failure and i'll never be anything to anybody. i either eat too much or nothing at all. i either exercise too much or not at all. i either long for the next day to start, or wish that there wasn't one. the ups and downs are nothing knew, but now it's happening all day every day, almost all at once. new symptoms are raising their ugly heads before i have begun to understand the last one. my head always hurts. my joints always hurt and crack/pop. my right eye twitches constantly. my skin is worse than ever. my hair is literally dying. every muscle in my body aches. i mildly hallucinate, usually sounds. i'm constantly fatigued, but not necessarily tired (i always get enough sleep). i can't put words together sometimes, and i regularly zone-out of conversations. my memory is deteriorating at an alarming rate. i can't focus and often slip into autopilot, and do things without acknowledging that I've done them. i'm not interested in anything; nothing particularly makes me happy. no matter how much i succeed at something, it's not good enough. no matter how far i've come, i end up feeling worse off. . . it's really becoming too much to feel all at once and i don't know how to stop it 👎 . . can anybody relate??

There are many myths about depression (MDD) that make it difficult for people experiencing symptoms to reach out for help. Thus, it is important to be able to separate myths from facts. #endthestigmamy #mentalhealthday #mentalillnessmalaysia #mindyourmindmy #worldmentalhealthday #depression #clinicaldepression #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness
... My clinician in this program I’ve been going to keeps telling me it’s okay to cry, it’s therapy, and until just a couple days ago, I’d been so resistant because I felt like crying and getting “over emotional” has always been a weakness of mine but really that’s just how I’ve been conditioned as a member of this society and with hard work and dedication, I can break that cycle and grow stronger because of it :).... - Caden 🔮 #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #staystrong

These are my wishes to you for this week ahead. As the weather starts to change, the mornings are a bit darker when we awaken, and we go through our own personal shifts and transitions, may you be present enough to notice the small moments of beauty around you. Ignore the nonsense as best you can. When it feels hard, rest somehow, some way. When the negative self talk arrives, remind it that you’re not listening this week. You’re trying something new. Remind yourself of all that is good around and within you. Laugh at whatever you can. Go forth. Make this week beautiful. ✨🌸 ______________________________________________________ #adviceoftheday #fortheweekahead #bemindful #rememberyourworth #youareenough #goslow #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthawareness #empowerment #mindbodysoul #therapyworks #endthestigma #confidence #newways #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalillnessawareness #meditation #balancedlife #begintheweekright #selfcare #selflove #youcomefirst #practicepatience
Today I went for a run at 5 am. And it wasn't because I was super excited to lose weight or because I told myself I was going to. It was because I woke up after sleeping for less than 4 hours fighting depression and proceeded to have an anxiety attack. Everything was feeling really bad and it was the middle of the night so there was no one to go to. I laid in bed for an hour begging for sleep to come back to me but it just wasn't within my grasp. So what did I do? I got up and ran. I pushed myself and ran. I'm not going to fool anyone into thinking that it was an easy decision. Deciding to do something productive when you're down sucks. But I'm trying to learn not to dwell and I put that aggression in my run. I put my sadness in my run. Why? Because sometimes someone can't be there and sometimes you have to channel yourself into healthy habits so mental illness doesn't swallow you whole.
Hope is the freedom to move forward.
I have sometimes felt like I’ve been living with my head in a cloud. This is the most frustrating thing when I have a “depression session”. Sometimes I feel like I’m stuck in a cloud even though I know the sun is shining just out of reach. I know if I stick in and ride it out, the sun will shine once it clears. What’s your experience is it similar?
I am extremely hyped for this game! Had to get the Ultimate Edition. I’ve had a rough weekend. Schizophrenia acting up after lack of sleep, but I’m getting better. Especially after En-af-Os (One-of-Us) contacted me to hear if I am up for an interview with a group of social worker students. Of course I am! Now I'm waiting for an email from them about the subject and date. So excited! #rdr2 #reddeadredemption2 #enafos #schizophrenia #skizofreni #paranoidschizophrenia #paranoidskizofreni #interview #enafosambassadør #psykisksygdom #psykisksyg #psykisksårbar #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #recovery
Actually I wanted to write a text for World Mental Health Day, but then something else came up and I lost track of the text. Thanks to @sindre.kristiansen and @cattivopictures I remembered my own text after reading their posts. Now the 10th of October has been over for a while, but this topic deserves our attention every day. It concerns us all, even if many do not want to admit it or only too late. Through my social work with mentally ill people and my own experiences with high psychological and emotional burdens (not illnesses, the distinction is important!), the topic is close to my heart and certainly often influences my photographic work. As mentioned before, it is important to distinguish between high mental stress and diagnosed illnesses. Every mentally healthy person also experiences moments or phases of grief, fear, listlessness and other great stress in his or her life. However, these are generally much shorter and less severe compared to people with a mental illness. Unfortunately, it has become customary to speak very quickly and carelessly of depressions, for example, even if none are present at all. A self-made diagnosis is worn like a badge in order to generate attention. This, however, distracts attention from this serious illness with all its severe consequences and reinforces the picture that depression is not so bad.  The people actually affected unfortunately disappear from the general perception. It is so important to be attentive and to support people in their battles. Too many people go down unseen and unheard because their fellows are too inattentive and distracted with other things. Attention can save lives! Show them that they are not alone and that you are there. If you are looking for help and want to talk to someone, contact a close person or the crisis hotline in your country. There are also opportunities for online consultations. Please get in touch before it is too late. You are worth it.

I am a sinner. I have sinned for so many times. His existence in my life reminds me how merciful and forgiving God is. He has been there through my thick and thin. He listens to my every laughter and cry. I bet that he prays for my well being and strength to fight my illness as well. Dear God, I don't really know what I did to deserve a great brother like him. But I thank You for this beautiful blessing. #mentalillnessawareness #mentalhealthawareness #schizoaffectivedisorder #bipolardisorder #mania #depression #bouncebackstronger #miasamalaysia #bethechange #beunshakeable
hi beautiful’s🌙 this is for all of you who need it; you are enough. MORE than enough, just by being you. just by existing, you make this world a better place. if the universe didn’t need you, you wouldn’t be here. i know sometimes, the darkness takes over. it’s scary and lonely and just frightening, but there is a light. the light is so beautiful and bright, that light, is YOU. you are the light. you have light within you but sometimes you just have to dig real deep to find it. but i promise you it’s there, and it never goes away. the darkness can just sometimes overwhelm you, and you can’t find the light, but it’s still there. you just have to look in a different direction to find it, you know? y’all are so incredibly precious. and i need each and every person reading this, (you), alive. and safe. take life 10 minutes at a time. just 10 minutes. then another 10, and before you know it you’ve made it through a whole day. stay alive i love you - - - - - #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthquotes #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthsupport #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessrecovery #suicideawareness #suicideprevention #youarenotalone #recovery #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #recoveryquotes #recoverywarrior #recoverysayings #recoveryjourney #depressionrecovery #depressionsupport #ocdsupport #yougotthis #warrior #dontbelieveeverythingyouthink

Hey you, yeah you. I want to tell you, before you start to doubt yourself, that I struggle with this too. I am here speaking about this because I know it too well. I know it’s hard. I know it more than I’d like to admit, but at one point we gotta put it in the work and stay consistent with it. I’ve failed miserably with BPD, promising people I’d change and go back to my toxic ways. Even now, I struggle with depression. I have to constantly put in the work over and over, sometimes without seeing any results. I get discouraged and get back up again. Academia isn’t how I got to this place. Yeah it helped, but I got here by not giving up. I got here by relapsing and crying over and over. Slowly I saw progress. Two years ago, I tried to kill myself, but I’m here now. Keep working hard, grind for your recovery the same way you grind for money. -with 💖Bon

I feel like I’ve been super MIA lately. I’ve been trying to be off social media and my phone in general more, so that contributes to it. Today was shit, I’ve felt depressed all day. I had a great Thursday, hubby had the day off bc he worked all night, so we went to a pumpkin farm, had an amazing lunch and pie, and then to a movie. Friday we went to our favorite dinner spot to celebrate my new job! Then we spent the night at my dads and on Saturday we ran some errands and then spent the rest of the day with my family. All my siblings came and we carved pumpkins. I had been looking forward to it, so I think that’s why I’m feeling down today. Every time we have something I’m excited about, I get depressed when it’s over. Combine that with hubby being gone all day and mighty and my face breaking out really bad, and I turn into a mess. Saturday, we test drive a Tesla. The guy said he needed to sit in the front with my hubby and immediately anxiety spiked. I almost stayed behind but I went. I felt trapped and pictured myself freaking out. I stayed in control and engaged in asking the guy questions about the car. I’m hoping tmrw I’ll pull out of this funk. I really hate when depression takes over, I feel like I can control anxiety to some degree but I feel like I can’t control depression. #anxiety #anxious #anxietyattack #anxietydisorder #agoraphobia #agoraphobic #healthanxiety #panic #panicattack #panicdisorder #depressed #depression #ptsd #gad #exposuretherapy #healthanxiety #mentalillness #mentalillnesstreatment #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalillnessawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthtreatment
a very long post. Four years ago I had just missed out on going to my end of school prom. I decided not to go after realising that I looked like a piece of poop in a dress. Having already started attempting to diet and work out at the time I was still rather chubby and that had been made clear to me all throughout my school life. From nasty little comments from boys to coming to terms with the fact that you’d never really dated during them years because I was always too ugly too weird or most importantly too fat. Slowly I transitioned into veganism, working out and genuinely achieving a healthy body but most definitely not mind. For three years I watched and planned what I ate. Avoiding anything processed or anything even slightly unhealthy. Eating 800 calories top and at my lowest at the beginning of this year I was 6 stone 10 lbs baring in mind I’m 5’7. I was severely underweight and under the poor watch of counsellors who soon discharged me for not being slim enough. I’d follow pro ed accounts, constantly take pictures of my body to keep track, thrive in dressing in clothes for 11 year olds, having A cup boobs and relish in the words and comments that people gave me about how skinny I was. While happier with my appearance unfortunately my daily drop in mental health and a couple of nasty relationships along the way, battles with suicidal thoughts, depression, extreme loneliness and a complete sense of loss I developed a binge eating disorder, I would very slowly and very sneakily begin to snack of foods outside of my diet plan, I’d start eating fried foods again, I’d binge on loaves of bread, eat endless packs of crisps and tell my self that there’s always tomorrow but trust me that’s no way to live. The less help I received, the more stress I gave myself and the worse my mood declined means the more food I’d eat. Only now I couldn’t stop...I’d become and am now still addicted to food. I can’t tell myself no. I can’t avoid unhealthy things no matter how much my body doesn’t need it. Instead I now feel like food Is all I have even though looking in the mirror and seeing yes a 4 stone weight gain is pure disgust for me. (Continued in comments)
Di negara yang sedang berkembang, isu kesehatan mental masih menjadi topik yang terpinggirkan. 4 dari 5 orang dengan gangguan mental belum mendapatkan penanganan yang sesuai dan pihak keluarga pun hanya menggunakan kurang dari 2% pendapatannya untuk penanganan orang dengan gangguan mental. . Di Indonesia sendiri, stigma terhadap orang dengan gangguan mental menyebabkan mereka semakin sulit untuk mendapatkan penanganan yang tepat dan terisolasi. Bahkan data dari riset kesehatan dasar menyebutkan bahwa pada tahun 2013 terdapat 56.000 orang dengan gangguan mental yang dipasung karena stigma negatif, kurangnya informasi, dan buruknya fasilitas penanganan. . Berdasarkan kenyataan tersebut sudah sepatutnya masyarakat untuk lebih aware akan pentingnya kesehatan mental karena berdampak langsung terhadap perekonomian negara dan mempengaruhi indeks pembangunan manusia. Perilaku negatif dan stereotip bahwa orang dengan gangguan mental adalah seorang aneh dan berbahaya yang sering disematkan masyarakat semakin mempersulit orang dengan gangguan mental untuk dapat menerima penanganan yang sesuai dan menghambat proses kesembuhan dan adaptasi sosial mereka. . “Gangguan mental bukanlah sesuatu yang memalukan, namun stigma dan bias mempermalukan kita semua.” – Bill Clinton . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #meliness #socialcampaign
Salah satu kasus yang banyak menjadi perbincangan namun tidak menjadi konsentrasi umum adalah kesehatan mental maupun penyakit mental. Masih banyak orang yang belum memiliki jawaban harus meminta tolong kepada siapa ketika dan banyak yang lebih memilih diam daripada harus mendapatkan sebuah “label” dari lingkungan sosial atas keadannya. . Menurut The World Health Organization tingkat bunuh diri di Indonesia pada tahun 2015 adalah 2.9 kasus per 100,000 populasi jika dilihat dari angkanya Indonesia berada di bawah Thailand (16 kasus per 100,000 populasi), namun masalahnya adalah masih banyak kasus yang tidak terlaporkan. .

OCD & ATTENTION Recent psychological research on the causes of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder have proposed that a critical impairment in OCD may be the ability to flexibly and intentionally shift attention adaptively for some desired goal. It is suggested that problems with cognitive flexibility may play a role in the symptoms and severity of OCD. According to the research, individuals with diagnosed OCD are able to direct their attention intentionally, but have difficulty shifting attention to new, relevant stimuli and away from an extraneous stimuli (Chamberlain et al., 2006). This impairment has also been found to be significant in first-degree relatives of OCD patients compared to healthy controls. Neuroimaging studies have extended this behavioural work on cognitive flexibility. Without being too technical, parts of the brain appear to be significantly less activated in OCD patients in reversal learning-based tasks (Remijnse et al., 2006). Importantly, people with OCD make more mistakes when switching between tasks than non-OCD individuals, which has been tied to reduced activation of the dPFC, lateral OFC, ACC, and caudate in the brain (Gu et al., 2008). It is clear that struggling with changing thoughts & attention is part of OCD. Challenging inflexibility and fixation thinking is important for your mental wellbeing & healthy functioning. If you find it difficult to disengage from the OCD thought spirals, it may be helpful to seek psychological counselling. There are many theories being explored about OCD.
