S2.E21: How Do You Talk To Your Family About Your Mental Health
Welcome back to Mind Over Motherhood! This episode is in response to a listener question! A few weeks ago asked how they can better talk to their family about their mental health. This is a really important topic because who and how you talk about your mental health matters, not only for yourself but for those around you.
This week you'll learn a framework for how to talk to your mental health with your family, and the dos and don't about how (and if) you can safely disclose information about your mental health to your family and friends. You will also learn some better ways to share about your mental health so that you feel good about what you share.
Everyone wants to feel supported, heard and understood, but your family might not be the best place to discuss your mental health struggles. If you're looking for a safe and supportive community of like-minded women who are also navigating their mental health, then The Eunoia Collective might be exactly what you need.
The Eunoia Collective is my monthly membership program for women's mental health. It's a safe space to learn about how your brain works and how you can best work with your brain to feel good, calm and actually enjoy your life.
One of my favourite parts of The Eunoia Collective is the thriving community within it! If your family isn't a safe space to share your struggles, and you're looking for more support in your life, check it out! You can learn more about the membership and what's included here!
Registration for The Eunoia Collective is currently open from May 27th - June 27th, 2021.

S2. E19: How To Get The Most Out Of Going To Therapy
How exciting is it that going to therapy is now considered cool?! More and more people are becoming comfortable talking about therapy and going to therapy. As an MD Psychotherapist, I think this is very exciting! So on this week's episode, I'm sharing how you can get the most out of going to therapy.
It's really healing and powerful to have someone - who is objective - to speak to about how you're doing and how you're feeling. Having a therapist you resonate with, gives you the space to ask the questions you're afraid to ask, to get an objective perspective, and to learn the skills you need for good mental health.
Dive into this week's episode, to learn how to make the most out of your therapy, so that you can arrive prepared and not waste time. Whether you've been in therapy for years or are considering it, therapy is something that everyone can and should be doing. We're taught that we should just "figure it all out on our own," but that's not true! You deserve support!
If you're considering therapy, check out my fully virtual mental health clinic, Eunoia Medical. We have a team of female family physicians who supports women in a really holistic way. We combine psychotherapy techniques (like talk therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy), integrative approaches, psychopharmacology and nutritional psychiatry to provide a personalized and comprehensive approach.
