How to Improve Mental Health

It's a great question: How do I cope with anxiety?

While there are no easy answers, there are some clear approaches you can take.

It all starts with learning more about what anxiety is FOR YOU.

How you experience anxiety is not the same way that your friends or family experience anxiety.

Often going hand in hand with depression, anxiety can be a shapeshifter.

It can stem from the body, the mind, or your relationships.

What starts off as social anxiety can soon manifest in your thoughts and body.

The mission of The Mental Health Update is to put anxiety in simple, accessible terms.

Mental health articles don't need to be technical and boring--they can be meaningful and help you make sense of your own life.
