2020 World Mental Health Day

World Mental Health Day is celebrated every year on October 10th.

It was established October 10, 1992 by Richard Hunter. Hunter was the Deputy Secretary General of the World Federation for Mental Health.

The top 5 warning signs:

Long term sadness or irritability

Extreme high and low mood swings

Excessive fear, worry or anxiety

Social withdraw

Dramatic change in sleeping and lr eating habits

October 8th is also National Depression Screening Day. I highly suggest reaching out if you feel you are having some trouble. Its nothing to ever be ashamed about. You have to take care of you!

You can speak with your primary care provider or an obgyn. Seeking therapy, or really any type of help for your mental health is a step in the right direction!

Wave of Light 10-10-2020

Pregnancy & Infant Loss Awareness

Established in 1988 by President Ronald Reagan.

This month includes those who suffered; stillbirths, miscarriages, SIDS, or a loss during any point in pregnancy or infancy.

It seems to be common for loss mothers to plants trees or gardens on loss anniversaries. It allows the memory and love to grow and be visual.

On October 15th, at 7pm in all timezones please light a candle to celebrate the Wave Of Light

If you have suffered a loss, my heart is with you. I myself lost a baby July 24,2016. It still to this day is hard for me. Some of us have babies we never met or they were gone much too soon. I am sorry, you are not alone.
