Do you ever feel like your mental health is struggling, but taking time to find a therapist or pay for medication will only make you more stressed? This cycle of not getting the help we need can be isolating, overwhelming, and can take us to some very intense emotional places. Lisa talks with her producer McKay and with the Council of Moms (Ganel-Lyn Condie, Rebecca Bingham, and Ashley Reeves) about their experiences, and gets some suggestions from LMFT Dr. John Sovec about how we can build daily self-care routines that bolster our mental health, as well as tips for when to seek out professional help. Mental illness is a serious and sometimes life-threatening condition, and you deserve to have all the help that you need.
