Effects of Screens on Mental Health

It goes without saying that our habits and behaviors can impact our mental health and well-being, which is why we must be so careful with how we spend our time. For example, various studies have found that too much screen time—whether it be scrolling on our phones or working at our desks—can be detrimental to our mental health, leading to an increase in negative feelings such as stress and anxiety.

Military and Mental Health

With May recognized as Military Appreciation Month, it’s an important time to reflect on the unique challenges that veterans of all ages face when transitioning from military service back into civilian life.

Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental health awareness aims to recognize both the positive and negative impacts of mental health as a whole. Mental Health Awareness Month, observed every May, helps draw attention to mental health issues and provide support for those who need it. It is a time for everyone to be aware of the signs of poor mental health and take action to bolster their own well-being, as well as that of their family, friends, and colleagues.

Does Addiction Cause Mental Health Disorders?

Addiction and mental health disorders can be overwhelming disorders to experience. What many people don’t realize, however, is there can be an intrinsic link between both. Addiction can cause mental health disorders with the potential of evolving into more serious illnesses.

Common Co-Occurring Disorders

Living with a mental health condition can put individuals at higher risk of drug and alcohol addiction. Studies have found that almost half of all people who have a drug or alcohol addiction also have co-occurring disorders. Here we look at the most common co-occurring disorders and why it’s important to treat them at the same time as addiction.
