Episode 61: Mental Health Awareness: Normalizing Emotional Struggles after Childhood Trauma

Episode Description:

This episode originally aired on YouTube. 

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a time to bring awareness to help lessen the stigma around mental illness.

I think there’s another important aspect to this that I share in today’s episode. I talk about mental health vs mental illness (there should be no shame or stigma around either one) and the importance of starting with ourselves in releasing both.

We're in this together, through all the ups and downs. #togetherweheal #notourshame #MentalHealthAwareness

Episode Notes:

- Mental health awareness month aims to reduce shame and stigma around emotional struggles.
- Mental health is akin to physical health; emotional struggle doesn't necessarily indicate mental illness.
- Grieving is a normal process, not inherently a mental illness, even after traumatic experiences like childhood trauma.
- Struggling emotionally after childhood trauma is normal and a result of coping with abnormal experiences.
- Seeking support and practicing self-compassion are vital in healing and normalizing struggles.
