Diet and Mental Health

Posted by Erin Fischer on

It’s not that hard to draw the links between diet and mental health. When we go on junk food binges, we don’t feel the greatest afterwards both mentally and physically, but when we eat healthily our moods are stable, we’re able to concentrate better and we just feel great overall. That isn’t to say we shouldn’t indulge or treat ourselves, but we should also be aware of what we are eating and how it will impact our mental health.

What Does High Functioning Mental Illness Look Like?

Posted by Erin Fischer on

We’re slowly releasing more Mental Health Profiles and the aim of this series is to show people that there is no one size fits all approach to having a mental illness. Most recently we have had two profiles looking at people who experience what they considered high functioning mental illness and because of that they felt that they couldn’t get help.

Mental illnesses are on a spectrum on one end you have people who suffer with them but require minimal treatment or intervention in the middle you have people who will require ongoing treatment and interventions and on the other end you have people who will require major interventions and treatment (including hospitalisation). You can slide on the spectrum depending on various circumstances which is all apart of life.
