What is a mental health mentor?
As we counter that feeling of being overwhelmed and burdened by the chaos of everyday life, where do we get strength and guidance? That's where a mental health mentor comes into play. As we navigate through our world and deal with these issues, it helps when you have someone who can clarify our vision.
At its very core, mentoring is intended to help another person. A mentor gives us advice, support, and guidance to where we need and want to be. Transcend Recovery Community understands this and has developed a mental health mentoring program optimized for helping people struggling with their mental health issues cope better. Through a collaborative effort with mental health specialists, we can identify critical areas that will help an individual better understand themselves and their mental health issues with much clarity.
Sometimes, it's easy to lose sight of what we want or our purpose, but having a person to steer us to the path we need is highly beneficial for people—especially if you get easily lost and hampered by challenges, whether big or small.
Facing struggles is an inevitable part of life. Through these struggles, we learn to grow and become wiser in every situation that we encounter. However, there are times when these struggles become too much for us and tend to become a considerable burden for some, if not all, people.
When things start to become too taxing for us as we attempt to juggle every aspect of our life, we experience stress which snowballs to more significant problems such as anxiety and depression. That's why before things get worse, it's best to have a mental health mentor to guide you every step of the way to keep your mental wellness always in check and to avoid relapse prevention for people in post-rehab.
