Within the past several months, a majority of mental health treatment has shifted from face-to-face to virtual Telepsych. While this did require some adjusting, many people are surprised by how happy they are with virtual therapy or Telepsych. Virtual services allow you to create a safe and comfortable space that’s on your own terms. Having these services virtually, means you get to decide where you are and how you customize your environment READ MORE
NeuroStar therapy uses transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to address key areas of the brain that are underactive in people with several mental health ailments, but more specifically for those with depression. The exact cause of depression remains unknown but is believed to be caused by an imbalance of the brain’s neurotransmitters, which are chemical messengers that send signals between brain cells.

Self-love is important when it comes to our mental and physical health. It is an act of appreciating who you are and loving all aspects of who you are becoming. When we show ourselves self-love, we learn to embrace our weaknesses instead of being ashamed of them. It helps us learn to focus on our well-being and purpose in life, and not what others think of us. When we practice self-love, we benefit by gaining a sense of confidence. When you carry out self-love, confidence in yourself, inside and out, will grow stronger and stronger. Center for Emotional Health wants to help you learn how to practice self-love daily! READ MORE
The birth of a baby can trigger powerful emotions, from excitement to fear and anxiety. But it can also result in something you may not expect — depression. New moms may experience postpartum "baby blues" after childbirth due to the drastic drop in hormones, which commonly include mood swings, crying spells, anxiety, and difficulty sleeping. “Baby blues” typically begin within the first two to three days after delivery and can last for up to two weeks. However, some moms experience a more severe, long-lasting form of depression known as postpartum depression. As a reminder, postpartum depression is not a character flaw or a weakness. Sometimes it's simply a complication of giving birth. READ MORE
Each year in September, we mark National Recovery Month. During this time, we recognize those who are doing the hard work of recovery, and those therapists, providers, practitioners, family, and community who support them. Another important focus during this time is making sure that those in recovery are aware of some of the resources which are available. READ MORE
Each year, World Animal Day is observed on October 4th. This celebration of the animals we share the planet with dates back as far as 1925, when Heinrich Zimmerman, who published a German animal lovers magazine, organized the very first event in Berlin. Six years later, in 1931, the event went global when the International Animal Protection Congress formally adopted World Animal Day globally.
You can certainly celebrate your favorite wild creatures – wolves, bison, rhinos, kiwis, or even your favorite salamanders - but you can also celebrate a bit closer to home. At home, in fact! Our pets, it seems, are not simply pleasant companions. According to scientists, they can also be good for your health. READ MORE
So, Just How Important is Sleep to Mental Health?
We have all heard the expression “waking up on the wrong side of the bed,” usually when we are not feeling our best in the morning, typically as the result of less than optimal sleep. We know we can feel out of sorts, have lower energy levels, and be more emotionally reactive. The question is - How much does sleep really affect your mental health?
The fall is a very interesting time – we see the leaves change through beautiful colors (depending on where you live) but know that winter is right around the corner. The changes in the amount of daylight can have a strong emotional impact. It’s very true that as the leaves change, so can our mental and emotional health.
Many of those who have served in our armed forces have been affected by their service – some in obvious ways, and others in ways that are not readily apparent. The unique and challenging lives led by our military service members can lead to a variety of mental health challenges, including anxiety, depression, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and traumatic brain injury.
As we approach Thanksgiving it is important to be aware that this holiday (like much of the holiday season) can very much be a two-sided coin. The day can often mean visiting with family, travel, stress, and reconnecting with people after a significant absence, in addition to the joys of family traditions, a good meal, and being truly grateful for the good things in life - whatever those might be.
So, with those ideas in mind, it seemed to be a good idea to put together a little survival guide to help navigate some of the ups and downs of the holiday.
As we get into winter, and the colder months, you may hear people talking about the “winter blues” they experience every year, or even how they experience “cabin fever” toward the end of winter and just have to get outside. But are these things real?
