Once again today I’m honored to be over at Postpartum Progress blog. It is the world’s most widely-read blog on postpartum depression and all other mental illnesses related to pregnancy and childbirth. The site focuses on positive messages of empowerment and recovery, because PPD is temporary and treatable with professional help.
On Monday I talked about how needing mental health medication is not a weakness. And today, the discussion is looking beyond medication for other treatments and self care that can be used in conjunction to better mental health. I strongly believe we need to advocate for ourselves with our mental healthcare (physical healthcare too for that matter) and be an active participant in our own treatment.
Please head over to “Beyond Medication: Other Treatments and Self Care” and if you missed Monday’s post you’ll find it here: “Needing Medication is Not a Weakness.”
Please share them with someone you love. You never know who these messages might help.
