What is a mental health mentor?

A mental health mentoring program is intended to help a person, whether they're young people or adults, who are overwhelmed and burdened by their mental health problems. A mentor helps by giving advice, support, and guidance when needed. Transcend Recovery Community has developed specific mentoring programs to help with bipolar disorder and depression and to reduce anxiety & suffering in people through their journey to long-term recovery.

Psychological mentoring also helps in relapse prevention, to ensure that vulnerable age groups, such as young adults, adolescents or teens, and children, have someone to monitor their progress and ensure that they don't go astray from their path of sobriety or healing.

As fear lies ahead for post-intensive outpatient programs for a mental health problem or illness, a mentor challenges those doubts, taking time to speak and motivate not just the individual but their family to break away from negative thinking and help them focus on how to be self-aware and cultivate in them the ability to lead an illness-free life.

What are the Benefits of Treating Mental Health Issues?

Mentoring has been proven helpful with 56% of respondents who admitted to having a mentor according to a recent U.S. study. It's not just for other people, like celebrities, athletes, and corporate executives, but also for the youth (young adults and young people in general) who have encountered a mental health problem or any related crisis in their life.

As the world and lives of the youth are met with challenges brought about by wars, pandemics, and political strife, it's easy to sink into depression and lose hope in a dim future. Mental health treatment and mentoring save lives and make a difference in ensuring that the morale & psyche of individuals are in good shape.

Whether they're teens or adults, both deserve proper treatment and support, through the intercession of an organization or an individual. Here are the benefits of treatment and how it can drastically change a life of a child or those of young adults.

Showing support, especially during isolation

It's easy to feel misunderstood like a child stuck in a well where no one can hear their plea for help. A mentor gives that reassuring pat on the back ensuring you that everything will be alright. They are like a friend in life who makes you feel that you're not alone in this world in your journey towards healing.

Diminishing the effects of anxiety

People, especially young adults with anxiety as one of their mental health issues, are susceptible to developing worsened symptoms and other illnesses due to their mental state. It's the business of a mentor to help them manage their anxiety, like a peer giving them constant reassurance that they can survive this particular ordeal.

Boosting self-confidence

As you peer through the lens of someone with psychological issues, you could see that they have low morale and a negative outlook towards themselves. Mentors help work through negative thoughts and feelings affecting the way an individual perceives themselves, allowing them to love and appreciate themselves more.

Having someone to listen to you

Mentoring counselors aren't mere medical employees who peer through your case, give you a prescription and then leave you be. They provide a safe platform for you to share your innermost thoughts and feelings free of discrimination. It helps them to then process the trauma within themselves.

Promoting optimism to your future

People struggling with mental health issues may often feel detachment and dread. Alongside these ill feelings, there’s lowered morale and a sense of hopelessness about their situation. psychological health mentoring motivates these individuals and influences them by changing their mindset and recalibrating their thoughts into something more positive and productive.
