Supporting Mental Health: Resources and Coping
Improve your understanding of mental health struggles by recognizing signs like anxiety, depression, eating disorders, emotional dysregulation, bipolar and schizophrenic episodes. If you need support, don't hesitate to contact the SVAE or SVCTE student offices of Human Resources. Additionally, you can find assistance through suicide prevention hotlines, substance abuse helplines, child crisis services, nonpolice mental health hotlines, public behavioral health services, and community mental health centers.
Take a proactive approach to enhance your mental well-being by exploring various techniques. Consider incorporating practices like meditation, mindfulness, yoga, breathing exercises, grounding skills, journaling, acceptance, and therapy into your routine. These techniques can be incredibly helpful in promoting emotional balance and overall mental well-being. On the other hand, it's important to avoid harmful strategies such as substance abuse, violence, self-harm, compulsivity, dissociation, catastrophizing, and isolation, as these can exacerbate mental health struggles.
Always remember that help is available, and you are not alone in your journey. Make your mental well-being a priority and don't hesitate to seek support when needed. Download our Supporting Mental Health flyer.
