  While the holiday season is known for bringing joy and good tidings, it can also serve as a tidal wave of triggers for those coping with mental illness.

There is a fine line between reacting versus responding. The difference lies in taking time to mindfully respond rather than having a purely emotional reaction to a stimulus. Though it takes time and practice, learning to respond to potentially triggering situations can improve interpersonal relationships and mental health. The cockroach theory is a new spin […]

Neuroses can be a blessing and a curse. Many successful people, from philosophers to filmmakers, have harnessed their neuroses to help them achieve great things.

Filmmakers are taking more measures to ensure that accuracy and empathy are applied to on-screen portrayals of mental illness than in past decades. For instance, 2012’s “Silver Linings Playbook” was lauded for providing an accurate depiction of bipolar disorder, while 2013’s “Blue Jasmine” gave an honest and raw portrayal of a woman struggling with a […]
