May is Mental Health Awareness Month


According to the World Health Organization, mental health disabilities are increasing globally. This augmentation includes a boost in substance use disorders, which means more people are consuming alcohol and/or other narcotics. In the United States alone, recent statistics indicate 22% of adults suffer from depressive symptoms. Further statistics suggest one in every four adults in the United States experience a diagnosable mental health condition in a given year.


The following activities are helpful to combat the ever-growing mental health epidemic:

  • Maintaining physical health, which includes eating healthily as well as keeping active. In fact, studies indicate exercise increases dopamine for up to two hours following activity.

  • Staying connected socially

  • Helping others

  • Reaching a mental state of flow. Flow is defined as being completely absorbed in and focused on an activity.

  • Asking for help; a.k.a. talking to someone

Talking with a trained mental health counselor can also help. To speak to a counselor on staff at Butterflies Prospering Wellness Co., contact admin@butterfliesprosperingwellness.com or call 254-213-9348.
