    Life is Good

    Daily life can be a challenge for anyone, let alone someone with a mental health issue.

The people who, generally, have it the easiest have had to work from home, cancel vacations, and find new ways to beat boredom. The ones on the other side of the spectrum have lost loved ones, jobs, and financial or housing stability. I decided that...

    Revisiting COVID-19’s Effects on a College Student’s Mental Health

    Up until a couple of weeks ago, I hadn’t thought much about the blog post that I’d written for MHAEM at the end of March. When I reread it, I saw that I’d addressed some things that had truly proven to be legitimate concerns. I didn’t have my favorite cafe to study in when I needed a break from the oppressive silences of the library study rooms....
