Mental Health Resources

Mental Health Awareness is an issue that Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. has shown a spotlight on from a national level with our program Zeta Sings the Blues. Our national mission is to destigmatize mental illness, provide awareness, and educate our communities to increase overall well-being.

Beta Omicron Zeta Chapter will be launching a social media campaign across multiple platforms that will further bring awareness to certain issues and provide resources and connections for those who need them.

Neglecting mental health needs can have significant and wide-ranging impacts on various aspects of your life, including a decline in mental well-being and impaired physical health from chronic stress or other factors. If you reach a point where you are struggling to concentrate or stay motivated at work, you may be missing the benefits of routine mental breaks in your day. Adding meditation or physical activity to your daily routines can be a way to explore what mental breaks best serve you. At home, a mental break could consist of playing music, painting, or practicing deep breathing exercises.

Natural remedies:  Postpartum depression is a serious and debilitating condition, and you should not attempt to treat it without a healthcare professional’s input.  

 

But at-home practices like eating a healthy diet, regularly engaging in gentle exercise, practicing meditation or yoga, and spending time in nature, may help you feel better, especially when used alongside traditional treatments like medication and therapy.

 

Self-care:  Postpartum depression can feel exhausting and isolating, so it’s important to take time to yourself and reach out to family and friends and ask for help when you need it. Joining support groups can also help.
