Mental Health By: Maliha Richards

3 Emotional needs

Every person needs these three things:

To be loved/give love; to belong; to feel worthwhile

Emotions

You feel emotions in your everyday life, and they make a HUGE impact, but there are no bad emotions

People think that punching something will help you with your emotions, but it really just makes you angrier and in the habit to hit something when your emotional. Instead you should take deep breaths, admit to yourself how you feel, and focus on the right words.

If someone else is feeling down then try and talk to them, but remember you aren't a professional therapist

Stress

Eustress-can happen before events and games, it gives you energy and is good

Distress-it's not good and happens when your nervous, it can happen if you have to much work to do

When you experience stress your muscles contract, your sight heightens, and you get more sugar in your blood stream

If you're stressed you should...

  • Talk to somebody
  • Get more sleep
  • Take breaks
  • Eat healthy
  • Get exercise
  • Stay away from drugs and alcohol

Bullying

This is when someone's specifically targeting and trying to make you feel bad repeatedly, it is not when someone is being mean(being snarky, not liking ideas, rude remarks, etc.) because there is a big difference between both of them.

The victim later on may be...

  • suicidal, get depression, anxiety, or stress

The bully is...

  • likely to be a criminal by 24, and not have a good record

The 3 Selfs

Self Identity, Self Esteem, Self Harm

Self identity is who you are, whereas self esteem is you feel about yourself

Signs of self harm are the person is...

  • Not taking care of themself(not brushing & washing)
  • Not concentrating
  • Thinking that everyone is against them
  • Giving their favorite things away
  • Taking unusual risks
  • Having mood swings
  • Having pains without a medical cause
  • Has touble sleeping
  • Feeling sad and hopeless

If a person is only experiencing a few of these things, it doesn't mean that they are thinking of self harm

Seeking Help

If you are having any problems that you can't work through you should see a professional, even if it's just for a few sessions

The End!
