A New Understanding of Our Minds and Health
People at all stages of life experience mental illness, including anxiety and depression. There has never been a better understanding of how the right support, lifestyle and approach can begin to crack the code and lead toward better health. Now, in a new Special Edition, Mental Health: A New Understanding, the editors of TIME take a look at the vast world of mental health from understanding the causes and symptoms of mental disorders to feeling better, including the power of exercise, why your pets are good for your mental health, and the benefits of pharmaceutical aides, therapy and other ways to alleviate pain. There is also guidance on how to help a friend or loved one who is suffering from mental illness and understanding life as an addict. Additionally, we look at suicide, depression amongst college-age children and why the loneliness epidemic should be taken very seriously. Mental Health is an excellent primer on understanding our own minds.
