How To View And Deal With Mental Illness?

Mental illness can be both prevented and treated depending on how you take care of yourself!

What is the best help for mental illness? Often people try to find help for mental illness in ways that just medicate their problem or problems, instead of solving their problems. Some people are involved in addictions, unhealthy relationships, poor diets, alcohol, and drugs, etc.
Simply taking care of one’s diet, getting enough sleep, exercise, having a social life, and having a purpose in life are 5 things to consider before even considering taking medication. After looking at these simple suggestions and to notice nothing getting better, then professional help is wise to look into! Sometimes medication helps and other times it can create more issues if there are things that can be fixed to avoid medication.
The treatment covers the symptoms but does not get to the root of the problem that is all somehow rooted in sin, maybe not their sin, but sin none the less. Remove the sin and the mental illness reduces to a manageable situation. There is help for mental illness, but without God and prayer, the outcomes are often less than favorable.
 
There are people that you even know who are in our society that has a mental illness; many famous people have been affected by mental illness. Yes, medication can help, but getting to the root of the problem is critical which does not always happen, unfortunately! Without God’s healing grace and personal cooperation of the afflicted person, real recovery is not possible, and it is just covered up with a temporary bandage. ~ Bill Greguska

 

 

Mental Illness Is Often What You Don’t See!

The real shame is not taking care of the illness and allowing it to get worse. With God, medication, treatment a person can get to the point of living a productive, normal healthy life.

With God, There Is Help For Mental Illness!

 

Mental Illness Has Become More And More Treatable!

Medications, therapy, patience, understanding, and love.

God loves people that have problems no less than he loves others.  The only difference is that their disease makes life sometimes harder to deal with. But with God, all things are possible, and most people who have some mental illness can lead useful lives with help from God, others, and medication. It is known that drugs will bring out symptoms of emotional illness, or else drugs will magnify any current issues.

When a person with many of these types of problems uses alcohol or drugs, but the problem is that that the drugs and alcohol make things more magnified in a negative way. Also, when a person diagnosed then uses alcohol or drugs while on their medication, this also magnifies any issues that they are dealing with in the first place.

I had some experience in dealing with people who have mental illness and depression, but I didn’t see the signs in myself. I couldn’t ask for help because I didn’t know I needed help. ~ Clara Hughes
