MENTAL HEALTH

Mental health affects every aspect of our lives. Our relationships, stress responses, and decisions are but a few things impacted by our mental health. It affects how we feel, think, and act. Important in every stage of life, from childhood to old age, contributing factors include heredity (genetics), biology (brain chemistry), and life experiences, like trauma. 

Some mental health conditions can be temporary and complete recovery is possible. However, even if you have a more permanent concern, relief and some recovery can still be found. Better coping mechanisms, more knowledge, application of that knowledge, and improved communication are just a few strategies you can learn more about here at A Change For Better. 

We aim to provide you with the resources you need to become the healthiest, all-around, that you can be. Working on our mental health is always a benefit, as it will help us make faster and better choices, set healthy boundaries, show ourselves grace, learn to handle stressful events, and so much more. 

We formed ACFB to bridge the gap between those seeking mental health care and the resources available to them. Mental health is at the heart and soul of everything we do. Enjoy these articles as you explore on your mental health journey!

Benefits of Adventure-based Therapy

As a parent or someone who works with children, it can be increasingly hard to find something motivating. From late childhood into early teenage years, it is easy for a child to become apathetic and easily annoyed by events they would otherwise have been excited by. If you find yourself in that position, you are not alone.
