    Mental Health Awareness

    Mental Health Awareness

    So. Many. People face the reality of living with mental illness on a daily basis. It’s important to talk about these things because it helps raise awareness. This awareness allows us to fight stigma, provide support, educate the public, and advocate for policies and resources that support people with mental illness along with their families.

    How to Guide on Therapy & Therapists

    How to Guide on Therapy & Therapists

    How do you know if you need therapy? And also how do you know when a therapist is working for you - or not? On this episode, Caitlin explores what indicates now might be the right time to pursue therapy, and if you do pursue therapy, how to tell if you'd found a good fit for your clinical needs.

    Checklist - Could Therapy Be Helpful For You?


    Do you feel overwhelmed?
    Has your quality of life decreased?
    Have your relationships, job, or school been negatively impacted?
    Do your emotions feel all over the place?
    Do you feel hopeless?
    Do you feel anxious to the point where those thoughts and feelings take up a large part of your day?
    Are you withdrawn or isolated from others?

    After having your first session or two, it’s important to think about the following questions:


    Did you feel confident that your therapist understood and cared about what you were saying?
    Did their insight or guidance resonate with you?
    Did you feel like you were being judged?
    Did you feel like you were able to relate to them? Did it feel too clinical?

    Anxiety, Part 1

    Anxiety, Part 1

    This week we’re kicking off a new series on anxiety — what is it, where does it come from, how do you deal with it, the ins and outs.

    It’s something that we’re all familiar with to some degree and because it's such a buzzword right now on social media (and especially TikTok), now is a great time to dig into it more. Just like with every mental health struggle, anxiety can show up and express itself differently in each individual.

    Dealing with Anxiety with Shayla Brown, LPCA

    Dealing with Anxiety with Shayla Brown, LPCA

    Meet Shayla Brown, LPCC, one of my favorite people and a fellow clinician at Mindsight Behavioral Group in Kentucky. She loves psycho-education and TikTok, so you can find her on our YouTube channel, linked below.

    Today, Shayla and I are talking all things anxiety and mental health, and wow, I am so in love with this conversation and the ridiculous amount of snickering laughter we had. I absolutely LOVE her metaphor of being a car and how our thoughts, emotions, physiological responses, and our behaviors all play into anxiety. This is so helpful and I cannot wait to have her back!

    Hope y'all enjoy!

    Side Note: Flooding In Eastern Kentucky and Collective Trauma

    Side Note: Flooding In Eastern Kentucky and Collective Trauma

    As of this past week, the death toll from the flooding in eastern Kentucky has reached 37 and dozens of people are still missing, which is utterly devastating. There have been search and rescue teams, but due to the collapsed bridges and overall chaos, it’s been a slower process.

    Hundreds of people have been displaced due to this flooding. While it may not directly affect you, there’s a sort of shock and despair that settles in when we witness the tragedy of what others are experiencing.

    That leads us into the conversation of what we can do about it.

    Overall, there are some other groups that are helping who would benefit from donations if you are not local to the area.


    The Team Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief Fund - started by Governor Beshear on kentucky.gov - has already raised over $684,000.
    The Red Cross in Kentucky is another option as they have set up a shelter in Hazard, Kentucky. Their fundraiser can be found on redcross.org.
    Appalachians for Appalachia, has created a Google Doc for organizations such as schools and churches that are providing shelter.
    Save the Children is now accepting donations to its 2022 Eastern Kentucky Flood Crisis Fund.
    The ARH Foundation Flood Relief Fund is accepting monetary and material donations.
    The Foundation for Appalachian Kentucky, a nonprofit community group in Hazard, Kentucky, is accepting donations through its Appalachian Crisis Aid Fund.
    The Kentucky Department of Agriculture is accepting donated goods in Frankfort, Kentucky, through Aug. 5, with bottled water, toiletries and non-perishable items taking top priority.
    GoFundMe has set up an overarching Summer Storms Relief Fund 2022 to donate to victims of the flooding in St. Louis and Kentucky.

    We encourage you to give what you can when you can. After all, it may not be your family on the other end of this, but as Governor Beshear likes to say, "We're all in this together."
