Resources on Helping Conquer Mental Illness With Your Loved One


When mental illness devastates loved ones you can’t help but to feel for the pain they are going through. However what can be just as devastating is how do help them and yourself cope with the parallels that the disorder(s) brings. Even though when I live with mental illness, I still find it hard to help those I love, because everyone handles their discovery of their mental health disorder(s) differently. And let’s face it there is very few information, seminars, or even brochures on how to cope with loved one’s mental health. I mean, heck, the topic of mental health is just barely getting accepted! Every hospital, clinic, educational institution has resources to help people and their families and friends to better understand health topics like diabetes, asthma, and heart related conditions. But what about information and resources to cope with mental illness?  Well if you look below, I have quite a few links I have recently come across and I found them quite informative:

  • Time To Change

  • Psychology Today
